Product Description

Audio Technica AT-LP3 is a revolution in automation, it blends outstanding analogue sound with advanced features unique to a fully automatic belt-drive turntable. Play vinyl records at 33⅓ or 45 RPM using the pre-fitted AT91R dual MM phono cartridge whilst a detachable universal headshell and variable cartridge mode.

MM / MC Cartridge

A distinctive feature that is not usually included in turntables with integrated phono preamplifiers, MM/MC switch mode allows vinyl lovers to experiment with both Moving Magnet and Moving Coil cartridges on the Audio Technica LP3, permitting better sonic customisation.

AT91R Dual MM

Custom built for the Audio Technica LP3, the AT91R phono cartridge incorporating a Dual Moving Magnet design houses an aluminium cantilever for greater rigidity and retrieval of elusive details.

Universal Headshell

Suitable for half-inch mount cartridges and four-pin tonearms, the detachable universal AT-HS3 headshell lets users upgrade their cartridge to augment their sound.

Balanced Tonearm

Equipped with a lift that is hydraulically-damped and has a lockable rest, the LP3’s straight level tonearm has radial ball and pivot bearings for horizontal and vertical movements respectively.

4.5mm Platter Mat

Preventing undesired vibration and for secure play, LP3 includes a 4.5mm thick rubber platter mat.

Key Features

- Completely automatic belt-drive turntable function with dual speed: 33-1/3, 45 RPM

- Moving magnet and moving coil switchable modes for phono cartridges
- Dual MM type AT91R phono cartridge and universal AT-HS3 headshell
- Resonance-resistant aluminium platter formed by die-casting with 4.5mm rubber mat

Press Reviews

  • 'Best turntable under £200' (What Hi-Fi Awards 2017)

  • 'One of the best automatic turntables we've ever heard… Audio Technica has fashioned a turntable with all the ease of use and affordability of suitcase record players, but one that also follows the rules of hi-fi.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine June 2017)

  • 'In terms of performance, we could direct you to our AT-LP5 review. You can take away a little of the detail, space and dynamic range, but characteristically, there’s no mistaking these are from the same family.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine June 2017)

  • 'At this price we may have been tempted to forgive some soft or hard edges if they were countered elsewhere, but there really aren’t any. The soundstage isn’t cavernously spacious, nor the detail microscopic, though in both respects still probably more so than you’d expect at this price, there’s no clipping of frequencies and no coarseness here.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine June 2017)

  • 'there’s scale and power enough to give the performance heft, without it feeling like the orchestra has been squashed into the soundstage against its will. It grasps what each performance is about, prioritising an entertaining performance ahead of focusing on any particular facet.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine June 2017)

  • 'The fact it is so easily upgradable, with separate phono stages and different cartridges, only plays further into its hands as being pretty much the ideal entry-level product… At last, there’s an almost-all-in-one, budget turntable that treats your records as music and not a mere curiosity.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine June 2017)

    The arm on this turntable can play most any cartridge from Ortofon, Grado, Audio Technica, etc. Personally I have the Grado Prestige Gold and the ground removes any possible hum (the ground cable is very important). The ground terminates on my Vincent PHO8, because I love this preamp. It plays flawlessly, and when it ends it returns to the post and stops. This isn't my first table since I also own the Rega RP3, Audio Technica AT-150Mlx, with a Musical Fidelity V90 preamp (this preamp works so well with the top MM Carts from Audio Technica).
