It’s wise to look at your home audio set-up as but another area deserving of your time, attention to detail and a special investment. Audio-Technica’s new 60th anniversary turntable gives you all the more reason to put some thought and care into the turntable you use to spin your favorite records.

The recently launched AT-LP2022 turntable boasts a striking, visually pleasing clear acrylic design that stands out subtly and even humbly in your living room.

The turntable, though distinctive, almost nods to the company’s roots in a Shinjuku flat six decades ago–small beginnings often lead to bigger, better things.

The high-density chassis helps reduce resonance, while height-adjustable, high-isolation feet also work to deliver a crystal-clear listening experience, the sort that Audio-Technica pioneered decades ago.

The small details in the AT-LP2022 turntable are accounted for accordingly, including a special Shibata stylus used to capture ultra-high vinyl frequencies.

Even the acrylic platter is clear and sleek, a touch that turns the record player into more of a design object (when at rest) than most standard at-home audio systems.

For good measure, the sensor-monitored motor is designed to deliver expert playback of either 33 1/3 or 45 RPM records, ensuring everything from a Jack White 7-inch to a nuanced Yo La Tengo LP truly rocks.

Befitting any rare release found on Record Store Day, this sleek, sharp turntable is available in limited quantities (try just 3,000 units) for the investment-level price of $1,200.

The good news for audiophiles is the fact that the unit itself goes on sale on December 16, providing ample time for a record collection reboot this winter).
