"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 Great to hear my old vinyl again I wanted an automatic turntable and the choice is quite limited. I am glad I bought this one to pair with the Cambridge Audio One unit which I bought recently. Setting up the tonearm counterweight was a little fiddly but once set it has worked well. A little out of hours advice from Daniel from the Southgate branch to use the correct setting to connect to the Cambridge unit and it is now fully operational. One issue that I found with this and other components is that the dimensions quoted do not allow for the plug on the mains lead which adds at least another 50mm to the depth of the unit. I was fortunate to have a suitable alternative location for the turntable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, great product. Just bought this to go with my Marantz Melody cr612 and it sounds great. Got my 70’s LP’s out of the loft and its great to reminisce about my college days listening to class music on a great piece of kit. The Audio Technica has great reviews and deservedly so. Thanks Richer Sounds for your advice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great basic turntable All I needed was a turntable to play vinyl records without the need to copy, stream etc. Simple automatic play with built in pre-amp. This fit the bill perfectly at a good price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from perfect 'budget' deck . Did some research , read a lot of reviews and info on 'budget' turntables and this by far came out top . Was going to purchase the LP 60 XUSB , but the LP3 won me over with it's 5 - star rating . It looks impressive , has good stat's , an adjustable tone arm , with easy auto controls . Set - up is pretty straight forward and it goes nicely with my Panasonic SCPMX82 Mini - Hi / Fi ( also purchased from Richer Sounds ) . The sound quality is superb , even with old 60's mono vinyl , sadly I sold off most of my vinyl collection years ago , but having dug out the remainder am enjoying it all over again , with a better audio set - up . The only small drawback is that the connecting cable cannot be upgraded as it is fitted to the rear of the deck and it does look like a basic one . Still , as stated , the sound is still impressive , if you are in two minds about this 'budget' deck , don't be …. it's good ! .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Audio Technica LP3 turntable - great value! I bought an Audio Technica LP3 turntable recently and I am very happy with it! It has easy to operate controls and comes complete with a cartridge and stylus. It automatically starts and stops at the push of a button. Changing between 7" and 12" records, and between 45 & 33-1/3 is a simple operation. Much recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from replace ageing luxman Needed to overhall my old Luxman turntable so thought i would buy a cheap turntable while the old one was being repaired. Much to my surprise although the Audio-Technica is cheap, it sounds like an expensive HiFi component. In fact its so good im seriously thinking of disposing of the Luxman.
