Building on Audio-Technica’s analogue heritage and over 50 years of Japanese audio design, the AT-LP5x 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.

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 aluminium 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 allow for an easy upgrade to a moving coil with additional equipment. The turntable is also equipped with a USB output for direct connection to a computer.

  • J-SHAPED TONEARM: J-shaped tonearm, modelled after original Audio-Technica designs from the 1960s and ’70s, are engineered to minimize tracking errors.

  • SWITCHABLE MM/MC PRE-AMP: Switchable MM/MC built-in pre-amplifier and line enables connection to components with or without a dedicated phono input.

  • DIE-CAST ALUMINIUM PLATTER: Anti-resonance, die-cast aluminium platter

  • RUBBER DAMPING MAT: Heavy rubber damping mat for improved low-frequency reproduction.

  • AC ADAPTER OUTSIDE CHASSIS : AC adapter handles AC/DC conversion outside of the chassis, reducing noise in the signal chain.
