A supremely comfortable pair of headphones with wonderful build quality and evident craftsmanship throughout.
A thoroughly enjoyable listen and a worthwhile upgrade for Audio-Technica VM95 cartridges.
Buy one and avail yourself of what is undoubtedly one of the best moving magnet cartridges around.
A significant upgrade for a tremendously competent generator held back by its flimsy plastic body.
A simple yet effective turntable design of perfectly acceptable quality and very well executed given the asking price.
For those looking to play records to a high standard with minimal fuss and an easy upgrade path, the LP5X is hard to fault. It’s not the be-all and end-all direct drive deck. But it looks perfectly respectable, sounds great out of the box and has a lot of modding potential.
cracking carts for the money, continuing a logical reshuffle and welcome refresh of AT’s cartridge line.
The Audio-Technica AT-LP60 is without doubt one of the best-selling budget turntables to date, and the newly released AT-LP60X is sure to follow. But will either turntable cause undue damage to your records?
A couple of years ago I tested a GPO Stylo which was at the time one of the cheapest turntables available on the market. It was suggested that I repeat the test with an Audio-Technica AT-Lp60, arguably one of the best-selling budget turntables.
Succeeding the AT95 was a tough ask, but Audio-Technica have risen to the challenge. May the ‘green king’ rest in peace, the successor has arrived to steal the throne.
You could spend a fortune on the best cartridge money can buy for minimal return, or you could opt for the modestly price option that simply gets everything right and buy more music. I know which I’d rather.
Who said a proper vinyl-based system had to be large and cumbersome? It is possible to assemble a compact vinyl playback system which won’t break the bank, won’t damage your records and will sound a million times better than virtually every self-contained, all-in-one solution currently on the market.
If you’ve been holding out, waiting to see whether the 150SA attains the awards and commendations of its predecessor, look no further. If you’re desperately searching the market in an attempt to uncover an AT150MLX, I’d suggest you simply opt for the AT150SA instead. The AT150SA may just be one of, if not the best moving magnet cartridges on the market. Highly recommended.
With its clean, open sound void of any sibilance or noticeable distortion, the AT150MLX is quite possibly one of the best moving magnet designs on the market.
