30% off Audio Technica Turntables @ JB Hi-Fi

180

There are some pretty good deals here since they have 30% off the entire range of turntables, not just the ultra-budget turntables as usual. I got the LPW40WN in walnut a while back and I love it.

    They don't have the LP60XBT anymore? The bluetooth feature is well worth paying the extra for

    • Agreed. Means you can use your headphones or BT speakers and don't need to buy a whole bunch of new gear. Still the option of going old school of course.

        I may be old-school, but a bluetooth turntable is not for me. I love the idea of that I am listening to completely analogue sound. Turntable -> Phono pre-amp -> Headphone amp -> Headphones.
        If you use bluetooth you convert it to digital and then back to analogue again with your bluetooth headphones' or speakers' DAC. It may not matter to some but for me it is the complete experience.

        I am pretty sure all of these turntables have a built-in phono pre-amp, so the simplest set-up would just be to hook these up to a pair of active speakers (built-in amp) like any of the Edifiers that usually pop up here on OzBargain.

      They sure do, if you want to bluetooth vinyl: LP60XBT $244.30 (104.70 off)

  • Love you OP! Thanks

    I'd say skip the LP60. Probably not much better than the suitcase turntables honestly.

      LP60X (improved version)
      I think it will probably do for a lot of people. It may not have the best sound out of the bunch, but at least it will not wreck your records and it will not break the bank. For those planning to listen via bluetooth, sound quality will probably be more than sufficient.

  • I'd have been all over this had I not just taken delivery of a Yamaha TT-S303 from the recent Amazon.com.au sale.

    • Nice. How much was it on the sale?

  • As someone very new to turntables, what do you look for?
    Drive modes, speed options, anti-resonance, etc.?

    • +2

      I am very new as well, but…

      • Drive mode:
        Belt drive supposedly is for HiFi equipment (less risk of motor vibrations going through to stylus), while direct drive is more for DJs that want to line up their songs manually.

      • Speed options:
        I wouldn't bother with anything except for the regular 33 RPM (LP) and 45 RPM (singles). I will probably never even use the 45RPM.

      • Anti-resonance:
        Are you talking about feet, platter etc. here? I am not sure. Thick heavy platter alleviates resonance, but are usually expensive. These Audio Technicas all have aluminium platter I think. You can easily mod your platter cover (felt, rubber, cork, acrylic etc.)

  • Thanks for the heads up OP.
    Grabbed BT version.

    Nice. How much was it on the sale?"
    Hi mate…the Yamaha TT-S303 was $449 shipped (RRP $600)
    Super easy to set up and sounds great.You could upgrade the Stylus to an Ortofon 2M Red for $134 but the factory supplied stylus is absolutely fine.

  • @trippy - may want to mention that the 5% off store wide deal works for these as well.

  • LPW40WN seems like a great deal at this price compared to others in this price point (based on my amateur research).
    Combined with the 5% off sitewide and 3% off giftcards it works out to be around $427 including $9 delivery.

    Seems the last time it was at this $454.30 price was July 2020. Annoyingly it seems to retail for around $300US in the states which makes the RRP here seem ridiculous.
