Whether you're a newcomer to the world of vinyl or a seasoned collector with a cherished record collection, this turntable is meticulously crafted to cater to your needs.

Designed for Clarity: Direct Drive Motor The AT-LP5X stands out with its direct drive motor, a key element that contributes to its unmatched clarity. This motor ensures superb pitch stability, allowing for the precise and consistent playback of your records.

Enhanced Audio Technica Tonearm for Precision The classic J-shaped tonearm featured on the AT-LP5X is meticulously designed for precise groove alignment. Equipped with adjustable dynamic anti-skate control, it empowers the cartridge to track the record with remarkable accuracy. This attention to detail minimizes distortion and maximizes the retrieval of musical nuances.

Latest AT Cartridge for Enhanced Sound Quality The AT-LP5X boasts the latest Audio Technica cartridge, including an elliptical stylus that represents a significant upgrade over standard cartridges.

Three Speeds, Including 78 RPM In addition to playing standard 33 and 45 RPM records, the AT-LP5X offers the versatility to enjoy 78 RPM records. By simply swapping the stylus for an AT-VMN95SP (available as an option), you can delve into your collection of 78s.
