About this deal

Audio-Technica offers up a code to download Audacity software for converting vinyl (or any other analogue source) to MP3 or WAV files in the box, too. Ho letto con molto interesse la chiara recensione dato che sono proprietario dell’Audio techica LP5. To compare the LP5x with the 140, though, I used the same external phono amplifier and played records by Ella Fitzgerald ( Ella Sings Broadway) and Jethro Tull ( Under Wraps). At Smart Home Sounds, we are leading Home Audio Visual Specialists and one of the UK's largest Sonos dealers.

Motor noise is not at all obtrusive, and I couldn’t detect any variation in speed during sustained passages.

The AT-LP5X is a marvel of engineering with its die-cast aluminum platter and heavy-duty construction. Today, Audio-Technica’s audio products have become globally synonymous with consistently high sonic performance paired with impeccable build construction and artistic design. It’s a breeze to set up and use, it has a selection of features that are well considered and useful and it has the potential to work with your developing system too. The LP5X is a direct-drive turntable with a low-noise motor which provides stable, on-axis rotation at three different speeds - 33 1/3, 45 and 78 RPM.

OK, it doesn’t root itself into a wholly bass-lead foundation but, instead, it’s lighter on its feet and more reactive. Its die-cast aluminium platter and thick rubber-damping mat work together to minimise chassis resonance, for precise playback and delivering the full audio potential of vinyl.This has got a lot to do with the large power supply, the density of the 140’s plinth and the platter damping. The motor is An 8-pole, 3-phase brushless design with quartz speed control and electronic braking, achieved as in most direct-drive turntables by a quick backward spin of the platter for half an RPM or so. Audio-Technica promises that, in tandem with precision-machined platter, you should avoid any tracking issues as a result. These decks are actually pretty modular and not difficult to strip down at all and new oil does make a notable difference. Floating the arm and increasing the anti-skate compensation produced a gradual increase in force pushing toward the armrest as one would expect.

my first words were "I know nothing" and was then talked through it all in a non-patronising and easy to understand way. Building on Audio-Technica’s analog heritage and over 50 years of Japanese audio design, the AT-LP5X features upgraded technology while keeping the contemporary style and acclaimed performance of its predecessor, the AT-LP5. Switchable MM/MC built-in pre-amplifier and line enables connection to components with or without a dedicated phono input.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. As for modcons, there’s no Bluetooth support here – Bluetooth being a dirty word among some analogue enthusiasts, a quality of life feature for others – but there is USB output for anyone looking to digitise their sacred vinyl. A 5mm thick rubber-damping mat, which isolates from low frequency feedback while providing a highly stable surface for all LP formats, tops the platter. Part of the reason is that the 140 includes a large power supply, built into the chassis whereas the LP5x expels its power supply as a wall wart.
