Product Description

The Audio Technica LP5 turntable (now including a free lid) is an award winning, sleek and contemporary vinyl spinner, the perfect balance between technology and engineered design, delivering impressive sound from your vinyl collection.

J-Shaped Tonearm

Engineered for minimum tracking error, the original J-shaped tonearm was introduced by Audio Technica in the 1960's and 70's. Incorporated in the AT-LP5, it complements the turntable’s clean lines and minimal design. This balanced tonearm has a hydraulic lift, anti-skate control and adjustable counterweight for perfect performance.

AT95EX Cartridge

The AT-LP5 comes with the AT95EX high-performance cartridge, exclusively designed for the turntable, and fitted on an AT-HS10 lightweight headshell; this combination is perfectly balanced for the turntable's J-shaped tonearm.

Direct Drive

The direct-drive engine provides playback for both 33⅓ and 45 RPM records, it takes 1.7 seconds to start up and incorporates an ergonomic selector switch. A cast aluminium platter and thick damping mat are housed together in a structure engineered for minimum chassis resonance and stable rotation while retaining a discreet look.

Die-Cast Aluminium Platter

Audio Technica AT-LP5 features an aluminium platter with 5mm thick rubber compound mat for balanced rotation and improved low-frequency reproduction.
