Does the Audio-Technica LP60X need a preamp?
If you’re new to vinyl, you may be surprised to learn some turntables, like the AT-LP60X, need to be connected to external speakers, but its natural signal can be too low for average speakers without additional amplification. That’s why we included a built-in switchable phono preamp in the AT-LP60X.
Does the Audio-Technica LP60X have a counterweight?
Even the counterweight is just plastic moulded to the end of the tonearm. But forget this is Audio-Technica, which we know is capable of making some incredible-sounding, feature- packed budget turntables, and it is actually quite a shock to hear how capable the AT-LP60XBT is musically.
Does the Audio-Technica LP60X have speakers?
The AT-LP60X turntables do not have speakers built into their enclosures and must be connected to external ones for there to be audio output. You will know that the speakers are powered if one speaker (or possibly both) needs to be connected to a power outlet (or battery) to function.
