Product Information

A perfect balance of technology and design, the sleek contemporary lines of the AT-LP5 turntable grace any room in the home, whilst delivering performance features born out of Audio-Technica's rich analogue heritage.


  • Specially designed AT95Ex Dual Moving Magnet stereo cartridge
  • Twist-locking tonearm mechanism for quick and easy headshell exchange
  • J-shape tonearm referencing the original 1960's and 70's Audio-Technica design
  • Precision machined cast aluminium record platter for perfect on-axis balanced rotation
  • 5mm Audio-Technica heavy damping rubber mat for improved low-frequency reproduction
  • Ergonomic Start/Stop and speed selector with 33⅓ & 45 RPM selectable speeds
  • Adjustable counterweight and anti-skate control for perfect problem free playing
  • Anti-vibration and damping materials used to minimise unwanted resonance




The original J-shaped tonearm, engineered to minimise tracking error, harks back to the original Audio-Technica designs of the 1960's and 70's, complementing the AT-LP5's clean lines and minimal design.



The AT-LP5 comes with the AT95EX high performance cartridge, exclusively designed for the turntable, and fitted on an AT-HS10 lightweight headshell; the combination perfectly balanced for the turntable's J-shaped tonearm.



The direct-drive engine provides playback for both 33⅓ and 45 RPM records, with a cast aluminium platter and thick damping mat, housed together in a structure that has been engineered for minimum chassis resonance, while retaining a discreet look.
