” The AT-LP5x is a well-executed design that sounds great for the money. It’s also well built, easy to set up and nice to use. These things make it worthy of a spot on anyone’s shortlist.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

The perfect blend of features and sound quality

The latest turntable in an award-winning line gives you the perfect balance of features and sound quality. It’s ideal as a way in to vinyl or for those already with a cherished collection. For the best sound quality, the AT-LP5X is fully manual and comes fitted with top quality Audio Technica arm and cartridge. Unlike more basic decks, however, there’s a USB output, built-in phonostage and 3-speed switching.

Designed for clarity
With its direct drive motor, the AT-LP5X gives superb pitch stability. Combined with the cast aluminium platter and low resonance chassis, it gives the AT-LP5X ideal speed stability for perfect pitch and the lowest distortion.

Enhanced Audio Technica tonearm
The J-shaped tonearm is a classic AT design that’s designed for perfect groove alignment. Fitted with adjustable dynamic anti-skate control, the tonearm lets the cartridge track the record as accurately as possible, giving the lowest distortion and highest levels of detail.

Latest AT cartridge
The AT-LP5X also benefits from being fitted with the latest Audio Technica cartridge. Featuring an elliptical stylus, the Audio Technica AT-VM95E is a great upgrade over standard cartridges. Compared to more basic conical cartridges, the elliptical stylus on the VM95E literally gets deeper into the groove – pulling out more music.

Three speeds – including 78
As well as 33 and 45 records, the AT-LP5X is now compatible with 78s. Simply swap over the stylus for an AT-VMN95SP (available as a cost option) and you’ve a deck perfectly set for 78s.

Archive your records to PC or Mac via USB
With its USB output, hooking the Audio Technica LP5 to your PC or Mac is a moment’s work. Connect the deck to your PC or Mac, use the supplied Audacity software and you can record all your vinyl to MP3. From here, the choice is yours. Load them on to your MP3 player or NAS drive, record on to CD or just have the records archived on your computer - whatever your choice, your LPs are now more accessible than ever before.

Built-in phono stage
Audio Technica have made it easy to hook up the AT-LP5X 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. Alternatively, switch the built-in phonostage off and use your existing one.

Get deeper into the groove, with the Audio Technica AT-LP5X.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It plays records Successfully buying satisfactory goods unseen requires that one can read into the product blurb what is not included. Sadly, I failed. The photos werent the best but I took a chance. Sadly: there is no automatic stop/start (annoying); the lever arm lift leverfeels fragile and, being black, merges into the rest of the black structure (ditto); the lift arm catch has the same problems as the lever - only more so (again). Still, it plays well, with great sound reproduction. I just hope the deck speed is correct as there's no adjustment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought LP5x on rebound, glad that I did! Originally ordered LP3 but delivery kept on slipping what with Covid and Brexit. Sam at Preston advised the LP5x as alternative. What a fantastic turntable! and it arrived in less than 24 hours. It put my original Rega Planar 3 to shame and the fact I can use my Denon Moving Coil cartridges is an unexpected bonus. Well done Preston Branch and Sam in particular, many thanks for the excellent service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made turntable with good clear sound I bought the AudioTechnica AT-LP5X turntable recently. It's well-made with good clear sound in all the ranges and, for the price, I think it will be difficult to beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grown up kit Bought this turntable a few weeks ago with the help of knowledgeable sales staff. It doesn’t have lots of gimmicky extras but focussed on the function of playing music fantastically. Feels like a grown-up purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, great service from Richer Sounds I had been looking for a replacement turntable for my parents' ageing Gemini so the vast improvement in sound quality was no surprise. This turntable was set-up with such ease and looks very minimalist which suits my set-up perfectly. I've rediscovered some of my vinyls thanks to the AT LP5X. I haven't used the USB feature on here yet, but for everything else, top marks from an amateur audiophile!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely unit with a lovely sound to match. Bought this unit as it had a 5 star review, ordered on line and arrived the next day. The sound from this deck is far better than I expected and being able to record from the USB port a bonus. This deck was for a second system in my living room which was a surround system also bought from Richer. The deck worked perfectly with it. A really great buy, so pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great turntable, looks and sounds excellent I bought this turntable after fairly extensive online research, RicherSounds did a great price and they were the only website I found that advertised the Audio-Technica £30 cash back, I have bought from Richer before and the website, service and delivery is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of kit !! Great sound and solidly built .... looks good too. Ignore any reviews that say it's tough to set up .... I'm no hi-fi expert and it was a piece of cake, but for balancing the arm you need to refer to the online user manual rather than the sheet that comes with the turntable. Great service from Richer Sounds as usual !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value turntable with excellent sound I got this as a replacement for a Denon and it's excellent. The turntable is easy to use and combines a high quality sound output with the USB function so you can transfer your records to your pc. Highly recommended.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Quite Living up to it's reputation This turntable is slightly disappointing so far, but perhaps improving with use and adjustment, it was relatively easy to set up apart from the tonearm/tracking which was a total nightmare, the quality was so poor initially that I had to invest in a stylus weighing device, an additional expense I could have done without. The instructions are so poor that one had to resort to youtube and find the nearest model to this under review, the LP5x does not have a setup video the package promised to have audacity software and it did not, I was not contacted by Richer Sounds as promised to make sure I get the software I am still finding my way around this turntable, it is good, but I am not sure I would go so far as to say great at this stage, I am slightly disappointed and was expecting a bit more than what I got to be honest

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, exceeds expectations.! I bought this turntable after doing some research , after wanting to get back into playing record after many years. All my expectations have been exceeded,! I read the other reviews and can honestly say that hooked up with my denon amp and cd player and monitor audio speakers this turntable is amazing.! I am hearing things on my records that I have never heard before.! I am really impressed, and so pleased with it. Well worth the money, easy to set up. And just a great bit of kit. I am looking forward to many years of enjoying my music again.! Also a big thanks to the staff at richer sounds in newcastle, a credit to the company, they were extremley knowledgeable, and very helpful, and tge customer service is second to none. I will definately be using them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JUST THE WAY A TURNTABLE SHOULD LOOK What a great piece of kit - well built and sturdy. A great look - feels like 'old school', but sounds like 21st century. I was amazed at the vast improvement in sound quality of my favourite records. Crisp, rich and defined - especially the vocal projection. Matched with a Marantz Melody MCR412 receiver and Dali Spektor 1 speakers on the advice of the Brighton branch and am very pleased. Well worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Vinyl has come to life! One week in and I cannot stop playing vinyl. Chose the Audio-Technica LP5X and haven't looked back. Great service from Richer Sounds over the telephone with clear expertise and authoritative answers to my initial questions. Quick delivery via courier. Couldn't be easier to set up and pairs brilliantly with my Marantz PM6006UK Amp and an old but trusted pair of Acoustic Energy AE-1 speakers. The depth and definition sound is stunning and I am hearing things that I have never heard before. Have played rock, metal, synth, Indi and film soundtracks. All have come to life. Cannot recommend this turntable enough and so pleased I bought it at Richer Sounds.
