"An almost-all-in-one, budget turntable that treats your records as music and not a mere curiosity." What Hi-Fi Award Winner 2017

Automatic for the people

The Audio Technica LP3 is a fully automatic turntable. This means that, unlike manual decks, there's no need to lift the tonearm on or off the record or change the speed by moving the belt. All playback requires is a push of a button or two.

Sounds great
Where the LP3 improves on other fully automatic turntables is in its sound quality. Audio Technica is a leading vinyl company and, with the LP3, their experience shines through. The anti-resonance design reduces distortion while the die-cast platter ensures pitch stability and smooth running.

Quality Audio Technica arm and cartridge
As one of the most recognised tonearm and cartridge manufacturers for decades, the arm and cartridge fitted to the LP3 are both 'best in class'. The tonearm features a removable headshell and adjustable tracking weight making it easy to upgrade the cartridge. Fitted with an exclusive version of the classic AT91 cartridge, the LP3 is well suited to playing back a wide range of music with precison and detail.

Built-in phono stage with MM and MC compatibility
Audio Technica have made it easy to hook up the LP3 to your existing system. A built-in phono stage means you don't have to have a hi-fi with a phono pre-amp built-in - any AUX input will work fine. More unusually, the built-in phono stage doesn't just work with MM (Moving Magnet) cartridges, but MC (Moving Coil), too. This gives you much greater flexibility when updating the cartridge.

The perfect starter deck that's also a sound platform for future upgrades, the Audio Technica LP3 makes music fun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from greaqt features I bought new Audio-Technica LP3 a month ago, but found the Item was not Technics. but instead Technica, Can you tell me are they different brands? I would like your company to point out this is a different brand. Could you please give measurements of Hifi items ie length and width and depth so one can see if item would fit with therest of Hifi items I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features,sounds great and great value Bought this turntable a couple of weeks ago and happy that i did. Wanted to get back to playing vinyl as i have not had a turntable for about 18 years and this unit certainly does my collection justice. Easy to set up and was playing my first long player for 18 years in about 20 mins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Turntable Good Value for money with simple to follow instructions. Suitable for Line or Preamp operation via a switch. Ability to upgrade cartridge. Auto operation good if that is what you want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for the money I bought this deck to replace an old Dual which was pricey in it's day so was not expecting the LP3 sound quality to be so good. The automatic function works well. The only niggle is the lack of a dedicated power switch so it needs to be unplugged between use. I ordered over the phone from Richer Sounds at advertised price and it came 4 days later. Took ten minutes to set up. So far all is good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent turntable for the price I bought this turntable for my budget set up and it fits and sounds great, I will probably change the cartridge in the near future, but at the moment it is great for the price. Easy to set up with all good instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for money Not had a turntable since the early 90's and was starting to miss spinning the old vinyl so I decided to get myself one. Did a lot of research and decided on this little gem. For the price, I doubt there's better out there. Good build, and great sound (very decent cartridge/stylus). So pleased vinyl is back and I look forward to many more evenings enjoying pure, analogue sound!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall very happy I wanted a record player but didn't want to spend an absolute fortune. Very happy with the LP3. Great sound for the price. I might upgrade in the future if my interest continues to develop at this rate. But for now very happy. Also I didn't opt for next day delivery but it still arrived the next day, very happy!!
