A perfect balance of technology and design, the sleek contemporary lines of the AT-LP5 turntable grace any room in the home, whilst delivering performance features born out of Audio-Technica's rich analogue heritage.
The original J-shaped tonearm, engineered to minimise tracking error, harks back to the original Audio-Technica designs of the 1960's and 70's, complementing the AT-LP5's clean lines and minimal design.
The AT-LP5 comes with the AT95EX high performance cartridge, exclusively designed for the turntable, and fitted on an AT-HS10 lightweight headshell; the combination perfectly balanced for the turntable's J-shaped tonearm.
The direct-drive engine provides playback for both 33⅓ and 45 RPM records, with a cast aluminium platter and thick damping mat, housed together in a structure that has been engineered for minimum chassis resonance, while retaining a discreet look.
