All Audio Technica Discounts, Offers and Sale - December 2018
No not really mate I havent noticed it be any more dusty than anything else. I have it stood on a glossy black table I do find the feet stick solid to it which is good to stop vibrations but a pain to move it lol
Do you have any trouble with dust sticking as it's a glossy black?
I have this turntable in black and can highly recommend it, good find OP good price.
I have found Audacity great for doing that: https://www.audacityteam.org Identify beginning of each track, name track Edit > edit labels > add labels Once finished, saves as separate songs File > export > export multiple Just mentioning it as it took me a while to work out what you do!
Certainly better than the cheapo "turntables" avalable just about everywhere. If you;re planing to convert vinyl to a digital format it's a good place to start. There is a lot of things released on vinyl that's never been made available digitally. Take The Muppets' Music Hall EP for example which was in the charts in 1977. Not available to stream or download anywhere. Bear in mind that recording the file is only the first step, as you also need to 1. Split the file into individual tracks 2. Silence out any noise between tracks 3. Add tags to identify the tracks when converted. 4. Convert to a user-riendly format such as FLAC for lossless or MP3 for portable use.
published by The House of Commons Consumer rights to return faulty goods SN/HA/2239 2 Is there an EU-wide two year consumer guarantee? Many people are mistaken in thinking that the purpose of Directive 1999/44/EC, ‘On certain aspects of the sale of consumer goods and associated guarantees’, is to give consumers a minimum two years guarantee for all goods. In fact, this EU Directive, implemented in the UK by the Sale and Supply of Goods to Consumers Regulations 2002, has added little to already existing UK consumer protection law under the SGA 1979. 4 Under this Directive, all Member States have to ensure that “a retailer could be held liable for all 'non-conformities' (i.e. defects) which manifest in the good within two years from delivery”. However, this requirement is not a two-year legal guarantee (although, rather confusingly, the Directive’s title describes it as such); goods are not legally required to last for two years. It simply provides that consumer goods must conform to the sales contract at the time of delivery. If a consumer can show that the goods did not do so, they will be entitled to repair or replacement of the goods free of charge. If this would be disproportionate or unreasonable to expect from the retailer, the consumer will be entitled to a reduction in price or a refund. These consumer rights are available for up to two years following purchase. If the defect becomes apparent within the first six months of purchase, it will be presumed to have existed at the time of delivery, otherwise this will be for the consumer to prove. However, as mentioned above, the Directive adds little to UK consumer protection law. The SGA 1979 already provides the same legal rights to consumers to return faulty goods but for a period of up to six years after purchase - a much longer period therefore than provided for by the EU Directive. As a result, consumers should still rely on the SGA 1979 when returning faulty goods.
Feel free ito post it if you think it's a good deal.... I nearly bought it but then I looked at what I've spent this past month. (shock) Just FYI though....... A two-year guarantee applies for the sale of all consumer goods everywhere in the EU. https://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/bills/article-1677034/Two-year-warranty-EU-law.html The EU directive in question is 1999/44/EC. The full wording is contained here (open the word documtent and scroll to page 7) but the important bit is this: 'A two-year guarantee applies for the sale of all consumer goods everywhere in the EU. In some countries, this may be more, and some manufacturers also choose to offer a longer warranty period.'
You get two years, good idea to register it https://eu.audio-technica.com/service#tab_warranty
How does this compare to something like a Rega Planar?
I've read through the Amazon listing and comments, this may only come with one year warranty, the one with Audio Visual had a confirmed two year warranty.
On the Amazon website, 6th photo down. I haven't voted hot or cold - I am waiting to see if any member can confirm that this was an error by Amazon.
I have usb version, but never use that function. It's a decent turntable I find the fully automatic functionality a bit annoying having been brought up gently lowering needles onto vinyl. Had a few mishaps meaning the needle tried playing the mat!.
Where are you reading this!?
Power Supply Requirements, 120Volt AC, 60 Hertz, 3 Watts ??? US Power Supply, not EU 220-240 Volts !!
I’ve got the silver one and it’s USB.
Spoke to Amazon customer services, comes with two years warranty.
"Tequeneeeeeks" (lol) He totally misses the magnet drive under the plate, and I would imagine it would pop a spring if you tried any fancy DJ tricks on it. Looks the part though if you're on a budget.
Yeah, unbelievably so! This one says direct drive but I doubt it is the magnet system that the 1210s had, so motor noise will be transferred to the platter to some extent.
I have one of these for over 3 years now. A great "budget" turntable although not strictly audiophile. Would probably be best classing it as an old skool hi-fi type unit with USB. Looks similar to the old SL1200's but isn't built anywhere near as well. Also it's a manual turntable, so you will have to lift/return the tone arm at the end of each side of the disc.
Ah yes, I'll tend to my turntable, have to place the stylus down, wait for it to end, swap records... but ya know what forget the amp and proper speakers, I actually prefer dancing around my room holding a Bluetooth speaker. It's just so ....convenient. Look if you wanted convenience and have a Bluetooth speaker, you'd just stream your music digitally.
Hi Dreeon, it is more about convenience. Some might not want or have a phono line or amp ... Therefore, you can use an existing Bluetooth speaker. Note that wired connection is also available.
Deson't BT degrade audio quality? And vinyl is suppose to be the best quality so ... does this combo even make any sense?
Ah, non-bluetooth version is. My mistake
Thank you. Even better when you have the 15% off code on your account :)
a very warm welcome newbie.great first post have some heat :)
For gaming I would want the open set but at this price this is hot.
Thanks, ordered this for my older son as the Ariston Q deck just died.
I go out to see a lot of small bands play live. There's always a lot of vinyl options on the merch' tables.
its my music taste more than anything as most the bands and artists i love rarely release anything over here so shipping often costs more than the vinyl. Just need an income tho
Yeah, i'm needing one for a gift, so budget is limited. I agree that more and more stuff is coming out in vinyl these days.
yeah if you want a decent one get Audio-Technica AT-LP120. I had one a few yrs back but sent it back as I soon realized most the music i like never comes to vinyl. Then a few months later, about 4 of my fav artists released vinyl and I had no money, gutted. Think its something I'll get once I get my own place in 20yrs if I can ever afford to move out.
Just bought these as I was in need of a pair for producing/dj'ing with. My current headphones are quite bass-heavy which is desirable to listen to casually. For making music with however, they are dreadful, and often make my tracks sound like they lack in bass because of me turning down the bass in the mix when wearing them. Feels strange buying wired headphones in 2018, but I have another bluetooth pair to take with me and use with my phone.
QC25 = heavier bass, noise cancelling ATH-M50X = better clarity, no noise cancelling 'pressure' Neither are 'better', they just cater to different needs/wants. I'd say if they're for home use and you're just looking for sound quality, the M50X's are probably the smarter buy.
These headphones are unbelievable.
Bear in mind these are studio mixing / monitoring headphones, they're supposed to be as unflattering as possible to the sound. If you're looking for a pair of general headphones then they Beyerdynamics a few people have mentioned would be much better, but for anyone who's a bedroom producer these are an excellent buy (y)
Excellent pair of cans, one of the few pieces of tech I've bought twice. The newer model fixed what broke on the old pair, too (which was my fault for being a clumsy (nerd) ).
Thank you and I stand corrected on the DAC. I still think the craze with vinyl is quite retrograde and has nothing to do with HiFi but more to do with collecting or possessing expensive and beautiful materials.
This deck produces an analogue line output so that you can listen to vinyl as intended - i.e. it's old school! Essentially it's an analogue device, as that's all that vinyl is, and you don't have to use digital at any point if you are after the purest sound. However, it also has an ADC (not DAC) to create a digital version of the sound if that's also what you want - e.g. to rip vinyl straight to PC. Review here - https://www.whathifi.com/audio-technica/lp120usb/review
No I haven't, but I imagine the delay between the needle position and the bluetooth stream would be really irritating.
Can anyone explain what is the point of this device? I am old enough to remember when turntables were the only option to HiFi. But this is actually an analogue device that is converting through a DAC to digital. Am I missing something?
Has anyone got the Bluetooth version? I'd interested but want to know if it's decent
Had the Bluetooth version of this for over a year. Great turntable for a beginner or even someone who just likes vinyl. As mentioned if you want something more substantial the LP3 can be had for around £150 and you can change the cartridge/needle to suit your needs (y) LP3 currently in JL for £144 https://www.johnlewis.com/audio-technica-at-lp3-turntable-black/p3382134
There are £60 players that offer much the same experience as this. It's a reputable brand offering a cheaper built system. You really do have to go to LP3 to get that premium quality.
No problem. Thank you for taking time out with your advice, much appreciated.
You will either need to connect this to amplified speakers or stereo speakers like those I linked to, via an amplifier (and the speakers to the amplifier). You wont be able to directly connect the non-amplified speakers direct to this. https://musehelix.com/5-powered-speakers-for-at-lp60/
Thank you for your advice. May I ask if these would connect using the 3.5mm jacks' that's supplied with the turntable? Apologies for my ignorance, it's been a while, and when researching last time most speakers I found used the original style copper wire wrapped around at the back.
White oos too.
Oos, only white left.
these would be such a steal if it was not for the delivery and import tax, still a lot cheaper then elsewhere but that price is too good to be true unfortunately. ;(
The 770 are closed, 990 open so id imagine you had the latter. Reviews are seen have been great, I've just gone and bought a pair of the DT 770 Pro, looking forward to their arrival
I picked up a pair of Beyerdynamic awhile ago. I'm no expert, but they do leak sound if that's something important to you. They sound amazing even though I might not be using them to their full potential. I can't remember if it is 990 or 770. Sorry. Check rtings for a review.
£101.14 in the basket, Prime Member, says it's shipping from the US.
Odd. Still got into basket for that price for me. Sorry guys, guess it deal might have passed, or enough orders have jumped the price up again.
Great little turntable for the price. Automatic too which i prefer.
Reminds me, about time I got my Voyd out of the garage and got my study set up. If you want automatic get a CD player! :D
Superb bit of kit and fully automatic to boot! (y) Grab a pair of open-back reference AKG K701 headphones, from hukd to go with this turntable and a little £50 ish amp, like the Filo or a JDS 02 and your in your own private Vinyl Heaven!!!
A cracking entry level turntable, and a very nice price
Just typical I paid 90 quid for the sr5's a couple months ago and hardly used them. Suppose I have the blue and brown ones not available here
No Bluetooth lol
Argos error as usual, I think two of them are on-ear, the SR5’s. I’m sure the rest are over ear
they say on-ear but they look over ear. Which is it? Thanks
On-Ear? These look too large to be on ear, I wonder if Argos made a error, they look around-ear headphones to me, either that they are designed for people with very large ears, Good price though.
I checked before I posted, must’ve just updated their price. Thanks, I’ll add that in
Tenner cheaper on Amazon.
Now same price at Richer Sounds.
Looks a bargain in comparison to the Pioneer PL30K and Denon DP-300F, all three are from the same factory, only important difference is the cartridge.
That's a refurb. Usual price £119. Although your point still stands.
Same price at John Lewis (with two-year warranty), Richer Sounds and Currys
"Entry level" - what are you, some kind of vinyl snob? :D Seriously, you can pay a lot more but you can pay a lot less too: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/refurb-sony-pslx300-usb-turntable-black-4995-richer-sounds-in-their-online-clearance-section-2989813
I was about to purchase these, are they not worth it? Is there better out there for less?
I can not buy all of them to test...at least I could try what I thought I could depend on choice made 40 mm vs 50 mm driver (cheeky) (skeptical)
There's much more to bass intensity than driver size especially with headphones. Tuning of the driver, material, and enclosure make a big impact on it too. Don't buy based on driver size (40mm vs 50mm)
bass intensity..more deep! is it not? (pirate)
Whats wrong with 40mm?
