TTL Setup: Audio-Technica AT-LP60X / Edifier R1280DB
Congratulations on your new TTL Setup! Here are detailed instructions on how to completely set up your Audio-Technica AT-LP60XUSB turntable and Edifier R1280DB speakers, plus some tweaks for optimizing the setup.
1.0 SET UP EDIFIER R1280 DB SPEAKERS
Unpack your Edifier speakers and place them where you want them in your room. The Speaker with the knobs on side should be on your left side. Note that the speakers can be no more than 8 Feet apart.
Turn the speakers around so the backs are facing you. Make sure the power switch is in the off position and plug the speaker into an outlet. (Note: only one speaker will be plugged into power outlet).
Locate the clear speaker wire and connect the speakers together. This cable carries the audio signal and power to the "satellite" speaker.
2.0 SET UP YOUR AT-LP60XUSB TURNTABLE
Please refer to this quick setup video to get your turntable setup.
3.0 CONNECT YOUR TURNTABLE TO THE SPEAKER
Now connect your turntable to the speaker using the RCA cable. TIP: We recommend using the higher quality RCA cable that comes with your speakers rather than the one that comes with your turntable.
3.1 POWER UP + PLAY
- Turn on the power switch on the back of the speaker.
- Put on a record.
- Hit the start button on the turntable.
- If you don't hear your record, push the bottom knob on side of the speaker to toggle through the inputs until you find the right one.
There aren't many mods you can make to the LP60X, however you can swap out the stylus cheaply with the ATN91R Stylus ($24). This upgrade improves tracking and sound quality with the ATN91R's metal cantilever (vs. the stock carbon fiber).
