Audio Technica AT-LP5 Turntable.

A perfect balance of technology and design, the sleek contemporary lines of the AT-LP5 turntable grace any room in the home while delivering performance features born out of Audio-Technica’s rich analog heritage.

The direct-drive engine provides playback for both 33 1/3rd & 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 skilfully retaining the discreet look that complements today’s listening environments.

The J-shaped tonearm, engineered to minimise tracking error, harks back to the original Audio-Technica designs of the 1960’s & 70’s complementing the AT-LP5’s clean lines and comes fitted with AudioTechnica’s lightweight AT-HS10 headshell and the exclusive AT95EX Dual Moving Magnet cartridge.

Created specifically for the AT-LP5 turntable, the AT95EX cartridge delivers extended frequency and transient response through new materials selected by Audio-Technica’s cartridge experts in Japan.

With great attention paid to the complete analog signal path, subtle features such as the gold-plated u-shaped connections of the headshell, the choice of using both the internal or an external phono pre-amplifier, and a stable high-rated internal mains power supply with enhanced grounding, the audio reproduction credentials of the AT-LP5 are assured… while the looks simply speak for themselves.
