Audio-Technica Introduces Their AT-LP5 Direct Drive Audiophile Turntable



  Audio-Technica will be at The Venetian, Suite 29-236 during CES 2017 introducing their AT-LP5 direct drive turntable ($449), a high-performance record player that combines audiophile-quality sound with elegant design. The AT-LP5 embodies Audio-Technica's more than 50 years of analog playback expertise. Its direct-drive motor system provides stable playback for both 33.3 and 45 RPM records. A die-cast, machined and balanced aluminum platter and 5 mm damping mat are combined in a platform that has been engineered to minimize internal resonances, further contributing to the AT-LP5's ability to deliver detailed, nuanced vinyl playback from a quiet background.

The J-shaped tonearm is designed to minimize tracking error and hearkens back to the classic original Audio-Technica tonearms of the 1960s and 1970s. The hydraulically damped arm features a metal gimbal suspension system with precision bearings. It comes pre-mounted with Audio-Technica's lightweight AT-HS10 removable headshell and the new AT95EX Dual Moving Magnet cartridge, designed exclusively for the AT-LP5. The AT95EX utilizes a host of new construction materials that were chosen to deliver smooth, extended frequency response along with exceptional dynamic capability, imaging and transient response. The user can also mount the cartridge of his or her choice if desired.

The AT-LP5's USB output and included Audacity software make it easy to transfer records to digital music files for listening anywhere.
