Audio Technica Bluetooth AT-LP60XBT Turntable and Edifier R1700BT Bluetooth Bookshelf Active Speakers (version 4.0) with Upgraded 53” MOLEX connector.

This is an awesome setup for a dorm, office, or classroom due to the wireless connection option. No stereo amplifier or other component is necessary. Play vinyl across the room with no speaker wires due to the Bluetooth-enabled, built-in amplifier of the active speakers. The Edifier speakers, btw, also work great with Spotify and all other music streaming services from an iPhone or other smartphone. Just pair using Bluetooth setting on your phone to find the speakers. I am more than happy to demonstrate ease of use to serious local buyers.

The Bluetooth turntable is in excellent shape and was recently adjusted for speed (plays at 33.31 and 45.12 speeds). Pairs wirelessly with the powered speakers, but RCA cables can be added for a direct connection (see inputs on back of speakers). For wireless play, simply plug active speakers and turntable into wall outlets (even across the room from each other) and pair them using each device's Bluetooth buttons.

The dust cover of the turntable has some minor wear but nothing unusual, no major scratches or fogging (I'd give it an 8.5 out of 10, a solid "B"). The turntable itself is in almost new condition. The drive belt is snug and the automatic start/stop return buttons work perfectly, as does the cueing lever. Comes with the original Audio Technica felt mat (also in like new condition) and a paper Quick Start Guide (see photos) shaped like a record.

The Edifier Bluetooth speakers are in excellent shape with minor wear to cabinets. No ugly scratches or dents. Grilles fit snugly in the speaker cabinet mounts (see photos to see minor cosmetic details). Overall, these are in 9.5/10 shape. Note: I replaced the original left/right speaker connection cord (this is a proprietary cord) with a higher-end audiophile MOLEX connector. The cord is 53” in length, which I believe is plenty wide enough, but if you are looking to spread these monitors wider, you will need to re-order a 5m or 9m connecting cord directly from the Edifier website. For use with a computer, on a bookshelf, or in a classroom the 53” worked just fine. I've always placed the two speakers within four feet of each other, so I opted for the more audiophile but shorter cord.

No remote, sorry, but includes all power cords needed to setup wirelssly. Volume, however, can be controlled on the speaker itself (for vinyl) using the volume knob (also controls for treble and bass) or on your smartphone's volume controls using Spotify, Pandora, Tidal, etc. If purchased new, the turntable and speakers together would cost in excess of $400 before tax (see Amazon). Save $120, why not.

Price is firm. Local pickup in Bellingham.
