Belt-Drive Turntable: The Audio-Technica AT-LP7 is a fully manual, belt-drive
turntable with two operation speeds (33-1/3 and 45 RPM). The AT-LP7 turntable's
motor features a speed-sensor system to maintain accurate platter rotation
speed at both speeds.
Anti-Vibration Construction: The turntable chassis is
constructed of 40mm thick MDF (medium density fiberboard), an excellent
anti-vibration damping material that limits low-frequency acoustical feedback.
The anti-resonance platter is made of 20 mm-thick polyoxymethylene and is driven
by a sensor-monitored motor that ensures a continuously accurate platter
rotation (no mat is included). The integrated anti-resonance feet provide a
J-Shaped Tonearm: The headshell attaches to a J-shaped tone arm that
takes its inspiration from the classic A-T models of the 1960s and '70s. The
tone arm features a metallic gimbal suspension system and precision bearings to
mitigate tracking errors, and includes an adjustable counterweight and
anti-skate control. The height of the tone arm can be adjusted from 0 mm to 6 mm
to accommodate a wide variety of cartridges.
Dual Moving Magnet Stereo Cartridge: The AT-LP7 comes with a
VM520EB Dual Moving Magnet Cartridge with a 10 g AT-HS10 headshell and 0.3 x 0.7
mil elliptical bonded stylus (the cartridge will need to be installed - see User
Manual). The VM520EB Dual Moving Magnet Cartridge also
features an aluminum cantilever and durable low-resonance polymer housing, as
well as paratoroidal coils that improve generating efficiency and a center
shield plate between the left and right channels to reduce crosstalk.

- Static Compliance: 35 x 10-6 cm/dyne
- Dynamic Compliance: 8 x 10-6 cm/dyne (100 Hz)
- Vertical Tracking Angle: 23°
Note: The stylus can be replaced with any of the other six styli available
in the VM line, giving you an easy means of upgrading the stylus without buying
a whole new cartridge.
MM/MC Operation: The AT-LP7 can be set for moving magnet (MM) or
moving coil (MC) operation. If using the included or other type of moving magnet
cartridge, set the MM/MC Cartridge Selector Switch to the "MM"
position. If using a moving coil (MC) cartridge (sold separately), set this
switch to the "MC" position. The MM/MC Cartridge Selector Switch is set to
the "MM" position out of the box, since the included VM520EB cartridge is a
moving magnet (MM) type cartridge.
Note: The included cartridge is an MM cartridge. MC cartridges are sold
Switchable Preamp: The AT-LP7 features a built-in switchable
phono/line preamp that enables it to be connected directly to a computer, home
stereo, powered speakers, and other components that have no dedicated turntable
Stereo RCA Output: The AT-LP7 is outfitted with a set of
stereo RCA outputs and includes a 40" stereo RCA cable to connect to your AV
receiver, integrated amplifier, or powered speakers. Use the "GND" terminal to
connect the grounding line of the RCA cables to the ground terminal of the
Dust Cover: The Audio-Technica AT-LP7 turntable comes
with a dust cover that is also removable. The dust cover simply rests on top of
the turntable (there are no hinges).
- Dimensions with Dust Cover: 18.0625" (w) x 6.125" (h) x 15.4375"
- Dimensions without Dust Cover: 17.75" (w) x 5.625" (h) x 15.3125"
AC Power Adapter: The Audio-Technica AT-LP7 includes an
external AC power adapter with an attached 5' DC cord.
