Audio Technica AT-LP5X Direct-Drive Turntable

Building on Audio-Technica’s analog heritage and over 50 years of Japanese audio design, the Audio Technica AT-LP5X Direct-Drive Turntable features upgraded technology while keeping the contemporary style and acclaimed performance of its predecessor, the AT-LP5. The LP5X retains the J-shaped tonearm, a design inspired by the classic Audio-Technica models of the 1960s and ’70s, and features a metallic gimbal suspension system and precision bearings to mitigate tracking errors. The tonearm also includes an adjustable counterweight and anti-skate control and comes fitted with a lightweight (9.3g) AT-HS6 headshell and the black AT-VM95E Dual Moving Magnet stereo cartridge.

Construction

Constructed of anti-vibration damping materials with heavy-mass metal chassis inserts, the AT-LP5X turntable has been designed to limit low-frequency acoustical feedback. Its 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 highly stable surface for all LP formats, tops the platter.

The AT-LP5x features 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. The selection of MM/MC cartridges allows for an easy upgrade to a moving coil with additional equipment. The turntable is also equipped with a USB output for a direct connection to a computer.

Turntable with High-Fidelity Heritage

Born of Audio-Technica’s rich analog heritage, the AT-LP5X incorporates a J-shaped tonearm that takes its inspiration from the classic A-T models of the 1960s and ’70s.

Latest Technology, Contemporary Style

This next-generation LP5 turntable pushes the acclaimed performance of its predecessor to new heights, with upgraded features like the versatile AT-VM95E cartridge and a preamp gain switch to accommodate both moving magnet and moving coil cartridges.

Features

The AT-LP5X features a direct-drive, low-noise motor. It has a fully manual operation with three speeds: 33-1/3, 45, and 78 RPM and features an AT-VM95E Dual Moving Magnet stereo cartridge (black) with a replaceable stylus. The lightweight AT-HS6 headshell and J-shaped tonearm is modeled after original Audio-Technica designs from the 1960s and ’70s and is engineered to minimize tracking errors. The switchable MM/MC built-in pre-amplifier and line enables connection to components with or without a dedicated phono input. The AT-LP5X boasts an anti-resonance, die-cast aluminum platter, and heavy rubber damping mat for improved low-frequency reproduction. The AC adapter handles AC/DC conversion outside of the chassis, reducing noise in the signal chain.

Samson SAM30 3-Inch Powered Black Studio Monitors Pair (Polypropylene Woofers, Silk-Dome Tweeters)

The Samson SAM30 3-Inch Powered Black Studio Monitors Pair are a compact, full-range speaker solution for all your desktop and multimedia applications.

A Desktop's Dream

Whether you're listening to music, producing tracks, watching videos, or gaming, this stereo monitor pair features an internal amplifier, wood construction, and high-quality components that produce big sound, while occupying minimal desktop space.

Small Size, Big Sound

Don't let their small size fool you. Both MediaOne M30 monitors feature a 3-inch polypropylene woofer that provides tight lows, complemented by a 3/4-inch silk-dome tweeter housed in a custom waveguide that adds smooth highs with a wide sound stage. The result is a compact system with a balanced frequency response and stunning full-range audio. On top of that, a Bass Boost switch allows you to enhance the lows if desired.

Built from Experience

Based on Samson's 20 years of experience designing professional studio monitors for recording studios around the world, the MediaOne M30s are powered by an internal 20-watt, studio-grade A/B amplifier to produce robust, detailed sound. Also, wood cabinet construction with rear porting ensures maximum efficiency and low response without mechanical power loss.

Multiple Connections for Multimedia

Connect your mixer, audio interface, computer, or mobile audio device to the system's rear RCA inputs. A front-panel headphone jack mutes the speakers for private listening sessions. In addition, a 1/8-inch output allows you to integrate a powered subwoofer with your MediaOne M30s to create a 2.1 system.

Knox Gear Vinyl Record Care System

The Knox Gear Vinyl Record Care System is the perfect package to keep your vinyl collection in pristine condition. Inexpensive and effective, this kit contains all the tools you need to care for your records. It comes with three brushes, all in an easy-carry microfiber pouch.

The Brushes

The main attraction is the record brush, which features a wooden carry handle and a velvet pad underside. The soft touch of the velvet is designed to safely and lightly clean your delicate vinyl. Simply place your record on a flat surface or even on the turntable (you can either turn it on or rotate it manually), and gently touch the pad to the vinyl.

The small toothbrush-shaped brush can be used to clean the big brush. Once dust, dirt and debris begin to collect on the velvet pad, you will want to use this brush to clean it off.

The stylus brush features soft, carbon fiber bristles and is just what it sounds like. It cleans your turntable's stylus and cantilever, which are usually hard to access.
