Get your classic albums off the shelf and into your MP3 player Audio-Technica brings its legendary quality and audio fidelity to the digital realm with this LP-to-digital recording system. The AT-LP60-USB stereo turntable comes equipped with a USB output that allows direct connection to your computer. The system also offers: Mac- and PC-compatible Audacity software; an integral dual-magnet Audio-Technica phono cartridge; and a USB cable and adapter cables. The turntable also features a built-in switchable phono/line preamp that allows connection to a stereo system equipped with either a phono or line-level input.
The software included (Audacity) does have the ability to remove some scratches in an attempt to give you more of the original sound. If you contact the Audio-Solutions Team (email@example.com), we can send you a document on how to attempt this operation.
Ok I checked the previous person's answer. The switch in the back is pushed to phono. When I first got the turntable, the records sounded fine. As the month has progressed is when they have begun to sound distorted.

The switch is on the rear of the turntable, not your receiver. If the turntable is connected to PHONO jacks (which are designed specifically for turntable use), the switch should be in the Phono position. If you are connected to anything other than PHONO jacks, such as CD, AUX etc., the switch should be in the Line position.
Tone arm does NOT track all the way to the end of the record
When the tone arm gets to about the middle of the 2nd last track it stops tracking beyond that point and if I raise the tone arm and gently move it beyond this point there is some slight resistance until the tone arm reaches a point about level with the end of the last track and then the auto function activates and the tone arm returns to the tone arm rest and the turntable shuts down. Please email me instructions on what to do to have this faulty operation fixed.
I have only just set up this turntable a couple of days ago - you shipped it to me on 20 July 2011.
I have an At - PL50 and was never able to convert my records to CD's. For the past few years I have not had time to work on the issue. Now I would like to finish what I started, I have the Vista operating system on a Dell computer wiht 2GB ram. It appeats there is a problem with the software. I have Cakewalk. Is there an upgrade or new software that will work?
Thank you for your inquiry. First, make sure you are not connecting to a USB hub, but instead directly to a USB port on the computer. Try other USB ports if you have multiple ports. Try connecting the turntable to another computer if one is available. You may need to contact your computer vendor to make sure that the USB Audio Codec is installed and working. This is part of the operating system and is necessary for operation.
Even with proper settings, LPs sound like the Chipmunks.
The platter is turning too fast at the 12" and 33rpm setting, such that the vocalists sound like the Chipmunks. I've tried switching the controls back and forth, tried it at 45rpm (it's faster than the alleged 33rpm setting), and have tried multiple LPs. All have this problem.
Thank you for your inquiry. Check the belt to make sure it is properly seated into the groove of the drive pulley. If it is riding too high or too low this would cause the turntable to run fast. To check this, remove the felt mat from the patter. Turn the platter until one of the square holes is at the 10 o'clock position. You should see the brass drive pulley. Make sure the belt is only in the groove. If this does not resolve the issue you will want to contact our service department at (330) 686-2600 Option 4.
Thank you for your inquiry. It appears we need to take several trouble shooting steps to find out what is going on with this set up. Please contact the Audio Solutions team at (330) 686-2600 and they will be happy to help.
Thank you for your inquiry. This sounds like something we need to talk you through. Please contact our Audio Solutions department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 and they will be happy to help you resolve this proble.
Thank you for your inquiry. There is no adjustment for the arm speed. If you believe the turntable is broken or defective, please contact of Service Department at (330) 686-2600, option 4 for instructions.
Thank you for your inquiry. These are the exact same turntable except for the addition of the USB port on the AT-LP60-USB. The USB version can still be used as a component turntable via the RCA cables.
Thank you for your inquiry. Open Control Panel on your computer. In Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Sound select the Recording tab. Set the "USB Audio CODEC" as the default recording device. Please note that it is not identified as a turntable because it used the USB Audio CODEC that is a standard part of the operating system. Please note that you will need to set this in the Audacity preferences window as well.
I asked this question previously and got this answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Open Control Panel on your computer. In Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Sound select the Recording tab. Set the "USB Audio CODEC" as the default recording device. Please note that it is not identified as a turntable because it used the USB Audio CODEC that is a standard part of the operating system. Please note that you will need to set this in the Audacity preferences window as well.
When I go to Control panel "Hardware and Sound" is not a choice. In "SOund" there is no "USB Audio Codec" to choose... now what?
There are some variations in the look of Control Panel, but it appears that you arrived at the correct configuration window. Look under the Recording tab for the USB Audio Codec. This may be labeled Microphone with USB Audio Codec underneath. If it is not there, the first thing to check is your cable. Many USB printers use the same cable, so you could try one of those if you have one available. If this does not work, try connecting to another computer if you have one available. If it still is not recognized the turntable may be defective and you will need to contact our service department at 330-686-2600, option 4. If it recognized by another computer, then your operating system may be missing the USB Audio Codec and you will need to contact you vendor.
My turntable "every-once and awhile" fails to return to the beginning after the record ends. It also seems that some records are "recorded" close to the label in the middle. And the arm seems to hit a limit of travel and will hold it's position on the record...resulting in a...well I guess a skip.
First question asked if the AT-LP60 could be used to convert LP’s to MP3. You replied that the user should download the Audacity software and then, “using the RCA to 3.5 adapter cable that we include in the box, connect the turntable to the line input of your computer.”
On my laptop, I have a Mic input. Is that the connection I should use?
Second question asked how the AT-LP60 and the AT-LP60 USB compare to each other. You replied that they “are the exact same turntable except for the addition of the USB port on the AT-LP60-USB. The USB version can still be used as a component turntable via the RCA cables.”
What is the USB port used for? Output music to computer via USB cable? Output music to USB flash drive to transfer music to computer or play on another device? In other words, what is the advantage of the USB version of the turntable?
