Product Description

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

J-Shaped Tonearm

Engineered for lowest tracking error, the first j-shaped tonearm was introduced by Audio Technica in the 1960's and 70's. Integrated in the AT-LP5, it matches the turntables pure lines and simplistic design. This balanced tonearm has a hydraulic lift anti-skate control and adjustable counterweight for best performance.

AT95EX Cartridge

Audio Technica LP5 turntable is supplied with the AT95EX high-performance cartridge exclusively made for the turntable and attached on an AT-HS10 insubstantial headshell; this blend is seamlessly balanced for the J-shaped tonearm.

Direct Drive

The direct-drive motor supplies playback for both 33⅓ and 45rpm records with fast 1.7 second start-up and features an ergonomic selector switch. A cast aluminium platter and robust damping mat are stored together in a construction contrived for least chassis resonance and steady rotation while maintaining a subtle look.

Die-Cast Aluminium Platter

Audio Technica AT-LP5 features an aluminium platter with 5mm robust rubber compound mat for stable rotation and better low-frequency reproduction.
