Audio Technica AT-LP5X Direct Drive Turntable

The new Audio Technica AT-LP5X direct drive turntable is an ideal deck to base around your vinyl collection. The J shaped tonearm comes pre-fitted with an AT-95E cartridge, has three speeds (33.3, 45 and 78 rpm), has a built-in switchable phono pre-amp and therefore can be connected directly to a line input on your amplifier. 

Sound quality is assured thanks to the heavy diecast aluminium platter with a rubber mat and low resonance plinth. A transparent dustcover completes the package.

This next-generation LP5 turntable pushes the acclaimed performance of its predecessor to new heights, with upgraded features like the versatile AT-VM95E cartridge and a preamp gain switch to accommodate both moving magnet and moving coil cartridges
