Pioneer X-HM36D Micro System / Audio Technica ATLP60 Turntable
Its width of 21.5 centimetres makes this CD receiver of the X-HM 36D a real space saver – but on the features Pioneer did not save, though. The built-in Wi-Fi and LAN port connects the micro-components to the Internet where it opens up whole new musical worlds: thousands of radio stations, clearly presented and constantly updated by TuneIn. Or Spotify, even though it requires subscription, that provides free access to more than 25 million titles at all times, with daily updated tips, playlists, new albums directly on the release date and a thousand ways to discover new music. Whoever wants to listen to a CD or a local station on DAB, can do that too. Smart phones and tablets can also stream directly to the X-HM 36D via Bluetooth. Its two-way speakers truly turn it into a fully fledged sound system in a timelessly noble brushed-aluminium look. Really super that the sound is complemented by the noble optics.
The AT-PL60-USB is an excellent value, feature-packed turntable comes with everything you need out of the box including cartridge and cables. The USB output allows for easy plug and play usage with your computer (Audacity software included for PCs, MAC users can download it for free online). In addition, the aluminum platter is a great feature (most turntables at this price range have a light, plastic platter), and the included dual magnet cartridge is also an upgrade at this price range.
Operationally, the Audio-Technica ATLP-60-USB is simple to use. You can manually place the tonearm on the record or use the convenient start/stop buttons. In addition, when the record is done playing on one side, the tonearm will automatically go back to the ready position. Lastly, the most key feature for out of the box users is the built-in switchable phono/line preamp that allows connection to a stereo system equipped with either a phono or line-level input (most turntables you have to have a separate pre-amp or amplifier with turntable input). In terms of quality, the AT-LP60-USB is a step above most turntables (in sound quality and build) at this price range. Recommended for anyone looking for a basic listening turntable or anyone digitizing their record collection.
Rediscover your classic 33-1/3 and 45 RPM records on this affordable, fully automatic belt-drive workhorse. With its built-in switchable phono preamp, the Audio-Technica AT-LP60 may be connected directly to your computer, home stereo and to other components that have no dedicated turntable input. The turntable is supplied with an integral Audio-Technica Dual Magnet™ phono cartridge with replaceable stylus.
