Audio Technica AT-LP5X Direct-Drive Turntable

Building on Audio-Technica’s analog heritage and over 50 years of Japanese audio design, the Audio Technica AT-LP5X Direct-Drive Turntable features upgraded technology while keeping the contemporary style and acclaimed performance of its predecessor, the AT-LP5. The LP5X retains the J-shaped tonearm, a design inspired by the classic Audio-Technica models of the 1960s and ’70s, and features a metallic gimbal suspension system and precision bearings to mitigate tracking errors. The tonearm also includes an adjustable counterweight and anti-skate control and comes fitted with a lightweight (9.3g) AT-HS6 headshell and the black AT-VM95E Dual Moving Magnet stereo cartridge.

Construction

Constructed of anti-vibration damping materials with heavy-mass metal chassis inserts, the AT-LP5X turntable has been designed to limit low-frequency acoustical feedback. Its precision-machined, die-cast aluminum platter is powered by a direct-drive, low-noise motor, ensuring stable, on-axis rotation at 33-1/3, 45, and 78 RPM. A 5 mm thick rubber damping mat, which isolates from low-frequency feedback while providing a highly stable surface for all LP formats, tops the platter.

The AT-LP5x features a built-in switchable MM/MC phono/line preamp that enables it to connect directly to a computer, home stereo, powered speakers, and other components that have no dedicated turntable input. The selection of MM/MC cartridges allows for an easy upgrade to a moving coil with additional equipment. The turntable is also equipped with a USB output for a direct connection to a computer.

Turntable with High-Fidelity Heritage

Born of Audio-Technica’s rich analog heritage, the AT-LP5X incorporates a J-shaped tonearm that takes its inspiration from the classic A-T models of the 1960s and ’70s.

Latest Technology, Contemporary Style

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.

Features

The AT-LP5X features a direct-drive, low-noise motor. It has a fully manual operation with three speeds: 33-1/3, 45, and 78 RPM and features an AT-VM95E Dual Moving Magnet stereo cartridge (black) with a replaceable stylus. The lightweight AT-HS6 headshell and J-shaped tonearm is modeled after original Audio-Technica designs from the 1960s and ’70s and is engineered to minimize tracking errors. The switchable MM/MC built-in pre-amplifier and line enables connection to components with or without a dedicated phono input. The AT-LP5X boasts an anti-resonance, die-cast aluminum platter, and heavy rubber damping mat for improved low-frequency reproduction. The AC adapter handles AC/DC conversion outside of the chassis, reducing noise in the signal chain.
