  2. I have no experience with that particular turntable, but the best advice I would give anyone is to certainly download the repair manual, if you can find it. While I don't know what you have in terms of documentation, I doubt the previous owner would have given you anything. That might help you diagnose your problem more easily.
  3. Hi. After making an earlier post, I was told by members that rather than upgrade my LP60, it would be best if I get a new record player altogether. The ATLP60 served me well, and I have enjoyed playing music on it. What would you recommend I get? I have a couple of considerations: 1. I am happy to buy refurbished or used players on EBay, if the price is right. 2. I am ideally after an fully automatic direct drive player, just for ease (I am dyspraxic, so dropping needles will be a dice with death for my LP's) 3. A built in phono preamp would be nice, as that is what I have with my current player. 4. My budget is between 100-250 pounds. Any assistance and advice is greatly appreciated.
  4. Hi. I have had an Audiotechnica LP60 turntable for almost two years now. As I have some Christmas cheddar to spend on some new goodies for myself (and most definitely will I be buying a couple of LP's) what upgrades should I make? So far, I am debating whether to get the following: 1. A New Slipmat (the one I have I really don't like) 2. A new stylus (this one might be for down the line, as it hasn't done 400 hours of playback yet) 3. A new belt (I think my turntable runs a bit fast) What would you recommend? I know that some members don't like the LP60, but it works for me.
