Cohesive Integration, From the Platter to the Supplied Cartridge to Your LPs: Loaded Audio-Technica AT-LP7 Belt-Drive Turntable Also Features Built-In MM/MC Phono Preamplifier

Leave it to the Japanese analog experts at Audio-Technica to come up with an ingenious solution to any potential musical coherency and consistency issues by designing a turntable, the AT-LP7, around an acclaimed cartridge line: Audio-Technica's own VM series. The approach ensures cohesive performance and bespoke integration between all the components. As such, the fully manual, belt-driven AT-LP7 plays vinyl LPs with outstanding levels of separation, imaging, and responsiveness all the while proving an extraordinary tracker capable of deeply and accurately digging into records' grooves.

Outfitted with an VM520EB dual moving-magnet cartridge and AT-HS10 headshell and 0.3 x 0.7 mil elliptical bonded stylus, AT-LP7 also features a J-shapes tonearm with a metallic gimbal suspension system and precision bearings to mitigate tracking errors. An adjustable counterweight and anti-skate control come standard, as does the ability to adjust the tonearm height from 0mm to 6mm to accommodate a wide variety of cartridges. Indeed, the supplied cartridge can be effortlessly replaced with any of the other six styli in the VM line – giving you an easy upgrade path without having to invest in a new cartridge.

In line with Audio-Technica's proud analog tradition, AT-LP7 arrives built with a strict focus on involving sonics. A 40mm-thick MDF chassis dampens vibrations and limits low-frequency feedback. And the 20mm-thick polyoxymethylene, anti-resonance platter gets driven by a sensor-monitored motor that offers continuously accurate rotation at both 33 1/3 and 45RPM speeds. Want even more value? A built-in MM/MC phono preamplifier means you don't need to buy an external phonostage until you're ready to seriously upgrade. Just hook AT-LP7 up to an amplifier or receiver, and get ready to enjoy the distinctive sound of vinyl.

Last but not least, Audio-Technica shares your passion for your high-end investment by providing a protective dust cover with the ‘table. When you consider our 100% Music Direct Guarantee also accompanies the purchase of this overachieving rig, it's hard – if not downright impossible – to find one reason not to take the plunge.

"The LP7 checked off all the major boxes for me when it comes to an entry-level 'table. It was easy to set up, it's definitely attractive, and its performance exceeded my expectations."
