We are pleased to announce that Audio-Technica has lowered their prices to brick-and-mortar stores and starting today, we are able to offer the LP-60 line at even lower prices!
    Our workhorse: the Audio Technica AT-LP60        

The Audio Technica LP-60 is a great little turntable!  It's easy to use, compact, belt-driven and plays at 45 or 33 1/3 RPM.  With its built-in preamp, you can actually connect it directly to powered speakers (like computer speakers) or other components that have no dedicated turntable input.  Silver and black available. New price: $99.

We also offer the USB version of this turntable as well (it looks exactly the same except for the usb cord coming out the back) that you can hook up to your PC or Mac and allows you to make mp3 recordings of your vinyl music. It is great for people who make music and want to sample stuff or have a collection to archive. The Audio Technica AT-LP60-USB is now $129.
    The Audio Technica AT-LP120-USB       

Last year, we started carrying the Audio Technica AT-LP120. At $285, it's a bit of an investment, but well worth it. The counter-weighted "S" arm tracks the grooves much better than straight arm models, it's a direct drive model with a professional cartridge, pitch control, and three speeds: 33, 45, & 78 RPM.

THE VINYL STARTER KIT: We've done a lot of research and really wanted to offer an affordable, complete set-up solution for those first-time buyers, so we have paired the AT-LP60 with a couple of bookshelf Dayton Audio speakers (designed right here in Ohio) and a very compact Lepai amp, for the combo price of $179. You can upgrade the amp to the Dayton Audio Amp with headphone jack for an extra $10 for the combo price of $189.

PLEASE NOTE: we assemble each turntable we sell, so you never have to struggle with putting a belt on a turntable.  We sell turntables ready-to-go out of the box!!  So if you are looking for a turntable in the Columbus area, come to Spoonful Records.  We are happy to show you how it works, play the display model for you, and, you might notice, it's the same turntable we have behind the counter--our daily workhorse!  If you stop by during the week, ask Fred to show you! Replacement cartridges are also available.  Questions? Call us at 614-586-1918.
