The LP60 is a belt-drive turntable that features automatic speed control and a built-in phono preamp with RIAA equalization for optimum performance on vinyl records. The LP60 also has a direct drive motor (DDM) system that eliminates the need for belts or other mechanical parts to transfer power from the platter to the stylus arm. As a result, your equipment will last longer and you’ll be able to enjoy your music more often.

The LP60 comes with a 3.5 mm stereo input jack and output jacks for connecting external speakers. It can be used as a stand-alone player or it can be connected to a CD/MD changer via its digital coaxial input port. The LP60’s built-in phono stage provides high-quality sound reproduction of your favorite LPs while eliminating the need for separate cartridge components.

The LP60 includes a removable dust cover, a remote control, a slip mat, a carrying case, and a 1-year warranty.
