4.0 UPGRADES (SOLD SEPARATELY)
Audioengine offers affordable, silicone desktop stands for both the A2+ and A5+
There aren't many mods you can make to the LP60X, however you can swap out the stylus cheaply with the ATN91R Stylus ($39). This upgrade improves tracking and sound quality with the ATN91R's metal cantilever (vs. the stock carbon fiber).
Turntable Lab: Triple Operation Brush ($25) - The Carbon Fiber brush that your setup is great for everyday usage (we use one in our office). However, our new Triple Operation brush is on another level in terms of effectiveness with dual cleaning pads plus an integrated carbon fiber brush.
4.1 +BLUETOOTH TURNTABLE OPTIONAL UPGRADE
If you purchased the Audio Technica LP60X-BT turntable with added Bluetooth functionality, you can connect your turntable to the A2+ or A5+ speakers wirelessly. Ensure that you have followed step 1.3 above - connecting the two speakers. You can skip step 2.2 above and follow these connection instructions:
Activate the speaker's Bluetooth mode by pressing the Pair button on the rear panel of the active speaker as indicated below. A flashing LED indicates that the speaker is in pairing mode.
For the A5+ speaker model, ensure that the included Bluetooth antenna is screwed in and pointing upward.
Once the turnable is set up as above and connected to mains, push the Bluetooth button to the bottom left of the platter and hold for two seconds. The LED light will alternate flashing between blue and red, indicating that the turntable is in pairing mode. Once the turntable has successfully paired with the speaker, that flashing light will change to a solid blue solid blue. (NOTE: the turntable and speaker need to be within 1.0m of each other to pair).
Put on a record and start spinning! If you have any problems with pairing devices, feel free to reach out to our customer service team for troubleshooting tips.
