Description

This new version of the Audio-Technica AT-LP5X vinyl turntable takes several elements of the previous model, with some changes in order to improve its excellent performance.

The AT-LPX5 is built with different mechanical and electronic elements from the Japanese manufacturer's professional and DJ productions, but the whole has been adapted and optimized so that this turntable offers performance worthy of a home turntable.

AUDIO TECHNICA AT-LP5X: DESIGN

Its look is very pleasant. It combines the solid aspect of some famous turntables such as the Technics SL1200 (to name but a few!) with the elegance of European living room models.

Its mat black finish also contributes to its very modern design and can be integrated to the lines of the AT-LP5X tonearm.

The entire chassis of the Audio Technica AT-LP5X turntable is very solid. It rests on four large damping stands that limit the effects of resonance and hooking in the bass.

AUDIO TECHNICA AT-LP5X: PLATTER AND DRIVE

The drive is inspired by pro turntables.

The non-magnetic die-cast aluminum platter is damped with a thick rubber mat of excellent manufacture. It is driven by a direct coupled AC motor, so there is no belt. It allows you to play 33, 45 and 78 rpm records.

AUDIO TECHNICA AT-LP5X: TONEARM AND CARTRIDGE

The “S” tonearm of this AT-LP5X turntable has been designed to minimize tracking error. It is inspired from Audio Technica’s products from the 60’s and 70’s.

The arm is originally equipped with an AT-HS6 headshell mounted with an Audio Technica AT-VM95E cartridge.

AUDIO TECHNICA AT-LP5X: INTEGRATED PHONO PREAMPLIFIER

The Audio Technica AT-LP5X integrates a new RIAA phono preamplifier compatible with the MM cartridges and MC cartridges. However, its gain of 56 dB in MC remains modest. It can be associated to MC cartridge only, having an output level higher than 0.6 mV.

There is also an USB output offering the possibility to digitalize your vinyl records on your computer. An Audacity® software installation CD is included with the turntable.

It is possible to disconnect with a switch of this preamplifier part and use the AT-LP5X on an original phono input.

AUDIO TECHNICA AT-LP5X: INCLUDED ACCESSORIES

Are included in the package: power cable, phono cable, USB cable, dust cover and an aluminium 45 rpm adapter!

AUDIO TECHNICA AT-LP5X: TEST AND LISTENING

Once the Audio Technica AT-LP5X turntable is unpacked and placed on the furniture... you can say that you get your money's worth!

It is both large and sober. A feeling of solidity emanates from this product. It cannot hide that it belongs to the family of professional products. The former DJ or nightclubs lover will be pleased by this AT-LP5X.

This Audio Technica turntable reproduces music with a lot of dynamics, transparency and energy.

The bandwidth is very balanced, even if we feel a slight mitigation in the top of the spectrum.

The bass is really demonstrative. It will make a strong impression on reggae, electronic music and all current music.

If you are a lover of jazz and classical music, this Audio Technica AT-LP5X turntable may not meet your expectations in terms of finesse and nuance. However, by replacing the cartridge with a more high-end one, we have achieved amazing results!

Note that the phono cable can also be changed if you do not use the internal preamplifier of the vinyl record player.

All those who are looking for an efficient, robust turntable, equipped with a phono preamplifier, delivering a dynamic and physical restitution, this Audio Technica AT-LP5X turntable is made for you!

Its quality/price ratio is a real advantage!

Parfaite

Une superbe platine .
Avec son pré ampli d’intégré je la branche directement sur mes mackie CR4 ( avec ampli d’intégré ) c’est un pure bonheur.
Une qualité de son hors norme !! Vous pouvez ranger vos CD au placard.
Avec cette platine il est très simple d’enregistrer vos vinyles en MP3 grâce au cordon fourni qui se relie à l’USB de votre ordinateur
Un petit logiciel est à télécharger en allant sur le site indiqué dans la notice... et tout est d’une simplicité déconcertante.
De chez moi j’écoute forcément les vinyles mais le mp3 peut dépanner pour écouter dans la voiture .
Les solos de guitare de Goldman, Clapton, Gary Moore etc... sont à tomber par terre .. le rock d’Izïa Higelin nous percute de plein fouet ... de quoi de provoquer un orgasme auditif ( Dans aucune exagération)
j’aime la finesse du son, tout est parfaitement dosé ... ça prend au tripes.
Le bras descend très souplement et le diamant se pose prudemment sur le vinyle, le bouton « 33 On 45 78 » est lui aussi très souple.
Un réel plaisir à l’utilisation.
Après avoir fait l’erreur d’acheter une platine 1 er prix, et ayant vite compris mon erreur, j’ai demandé quelques conseils et me voici avec ce petit prodige dans les mains . Si cette platine est une moyenne gamme, je n’ose imaginer le rendu d’un haut de gamme . Je ne regrette pas mon investissement et à terme , pourquoi pas l’upgrader ...
Je remercie aussi toute l’équipe de maplatine pour leur rapidité et leur sérieux
Très agréable au téléphone comme par mail et très précis dans leur aide et conseils.
À bientôt pour des achats complémentaires
Biz à toute l’équipe
