A revolution in automation, the LP3 blends outstanding analogue sound with advanced features unique to a fully-automatic belt-drive turntable. Play 33⅓ & 45 RPM records with a pre-mounted AT91R Dual Moving Magnet phono cartridge whilst the tonearm’s removable universal headshell and switchable cartridge mode allows listeners to experiment with moving magnet and moving coil cartridges. Complete with a built-in phono pre-amplifier, the LP3 represents the next level for vinyl lovers.
Switchable MM/MC mode allows the listener to use both Moving Magnet and Moving Coil cartridges on their LP3, allowing for greater sonic customisation – a unique feature not found on most turntables with a built-in phono preamplifier.
Specially designed for the LP3, the AT91R Dual Moving Magnet™ phono cartridge incorporates an aluminium cantilever for higher-rigidity and improved pick-up of subtle details.
Removable universal AT-HS3 headshell allows users to upgrade their cartridge to further enhance their sound. Suitable for 1/2" mount cartridges and 4-pin turntable arms.
Incorporating a hydraulically damped lift control and lockable rest, the LP3’s straight balanced tonearm includes a radial ball bearing for horizontal movement and pivot bearings vertical movement.
Reducing unwanted vibration and for stable play, the LP3 includes a 4.5mm thick rubber platter mat.

One of the best automatic turntables we've ever heard
Despite fierce competition in the entry-level turntable market, the AT-LP3 does a great job at standing out.
Its performance is one thing, but the fact it’s so easily upgradeable means you’ve also got a turntable that can be updated and improved as you go.
Not that you may ever feel the need to. At this price, there’s little else that is as enjoyable to listen to and has so much to offer. This is entry-level, but not as you know it.Read full review
