The direct-drive turntable with its precision-engineered cast aluminium record platter, fitted with the exclusive high-performance AT95EX Dual Moving Magnet cartridge, itself mounted on an AT-HS10 lightweight headshell, proves the LP5 doesn’t compromise when it comes to materials and components.

The LP5’s J-shaped tonearm, which helps minimise tracking errors, is based on original Audio-Technica designs from the 1960s and 70s. 33 1/3rd & 45 RPM speeds, phono or line stereo outputs with separate grounding, a low-resonance damped & weighted chassis structure, the heavy 5mm thick rubber-composite platter mat and sleek matte black paint finish create a comprehensive package.

The AT-LP5 offers a built-in switchable phono/line pre-amplifier that provides connection to a stereo system equipped with either phono or line-level inputs. The AT-LP5 also includes Audacity recording software for MAC or PC, USB cable and an RCA / RCA stereo adapter cable, allowing direct connection to your computer to transfer your classic LP collection to digital files using its USB output.

With great attention paid to the complete analog signal path, subtle features such as the gold-plated u-shaped connections of the HS10 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 LP5 are clear for all to see.
