Conclusion

The AT-LP60 is an excellent first turntable for anyone looking to get into vinyl and it’s a decent replacement turntable for anyone looking to get BACK into vinyl. Easy to set up, great sound. This is not an audiophile TT, nor is it appropriate for DJ use. It’s about as simple as it gets, but that’s part of what makes it appealing for the novice or the casual listener.

Overall This is a great piece of equipment at its price. A lot of vinyl novices end up spending five times this amount on a Pro-Ject Debut and a phono preamp, but the LP60 allows you to test the waters and see if you really want to get into vinyl.

Yes, the Pro-Ject is superior in every dimension, but vinyl is an idiosyncratic medium full of quirks that may or may not appeal to any given listener. The LP60 is great for anyone who is curious, but not convinced about the joys of vinyl.

If you have extra money, buy something more expensive. Otherwise, try the AT-LP60. I highly recommend this player to anyone on a budget looking for a record player.
