Congratulations on your new TTL Setup! Here are detailed instructions on how to completely set up your Audio-Technica AT-LP60X 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 knobs on the 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 back panels 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-LP60X TURNTABLE
Please refer to this quick video to get your AT-LP60X turntable set up.
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 the side of the speaker to toggle through the available inputs until you select 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 ($39). This upgrade improves tracking and sound quality with the ATN91R's metal cantilever (vs. the stock carbon fiber).
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 Edifier R1280DB speakers wirelessly. Ensure that you have followed step 1.2 above - connecting the two speakers. You can skip step 3.0 above and follow these connection instructions:
Activate the speaker's Bluetooth mode by pressing the button with the Bluetooth symbol on your remote as indicated below...
...or press the master volume control knob on the back panel of the active speaker. The indicator light will turn to blue.
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.
