Featuring an external power supply, the AT-LP5x includes a new quartz-locked DC servo direct drive motor, which offers 33, 45 and now 78 RPM (for the latter, look at a stylus like the AT-VM95SP, sold separately).

    I bought an A.T. LP5 a month ago,to fill in for my Linn that’s getting a rebuild. Easy to setup,and doesn’t sound plasticey as I thought it would. The cartridge is really bright, but very lively. I’ve not listened to any m.m. cartridges in thirty years. I enjoy it’s snap and excitement. I’m putting a dynavector 10 x 5 on soon to hear how that sounds with it.

    Hi Paul, after some research based on my price range and lacking experience with turntables I had planned to buy the AT-LP5, but I’ve only recently come across the LP5X. I don’t see many extensive reviews yet so I’m wondering whether I should just go ahead and buy the LP5X instead of the LP5, assuming it will be better, or if there’s a risk the LP5 would still offer a better listening experience…. What do you think? Thanks!

      Of the two, I’d go for the ‘x’ Tom.
