The AT-LP5x turntable has been designed to limit low-frequency acoustical feedback. The turntable is constructed with anti-vibration damping materials. The 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 stable surface for all LP formats, tops the platter.
The LP5x has a J-shaped tonearm, a design that was inspired by the classic Audio-Technica models of the 60’s and the 70’s, and has a metallic gimbal suspension system and precision bearings for tracking accuracy. The tonearm also includes an adjustable counterweight and anti-skate control and comes fitted with a lightweight headshell and the black AT-VM95E Dual Moving Magnet stereo cartridge.
The AT-LP5x has 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 but that do have an AUX type input. The LP5x turntable is also equipped with a USB output for direct connection to a computer.
