Whether you're reviving a vintage record collection or building a new one, this is a good choice for an audiophile on any budget. The ATLP60 features Start and Stop buttons for fully automated operation. Of course, you'll still have to flip the record when a side finishes, but that means no need to handle the delicate stylus and less chance of scratching your records. The Tone Arm Lift button makes it easy to seek to an individual track on the album.

Conclusion

Just hit the button and the tone arm will hover just above the record's surface. Seek to the track you like, press the button again and the needle will drop to resume play. The ATLP60 is well suited for a bedroom audio system or a great addition to an existing entertainment system. Experience the sound of vinyl to hear what you've been missing in your CDs and MP3s all these years. You'll hear songs clearer than ever before. You may also find some records with slightly different mixes or extended versions of songs which you won't find on other media. In short, the Audio-Technica ATLP60 makes listening to records a breeze. It sounds great and it won't break the bank. The ATLP60 is all you need to turn your home audio system into a vinyl sanctuary. It's well-suited for anyone looking to begin a new record collection or add a record player to a new room in the house.
