TTL Setup: Audio-Technica AT-LP60X / Kanto Speakers


Congratulations on your new TTL Setup! Here are detailed instructions on how to completely set up your Audio-Technica AT-LP60X turntable and Kanto speakers, plus some tweaks for optimizing the setup.

1.0 SET UP KANTO SPEAKERS

1.1

Unpack your Kanto speakers and locate the accessories and cables as shown. The clear speaker wire will be used to connect the (2) speakers together.

1.2

Position your speakers. NOTE: Position the powered unit on the left.  

1.3

Plug in your speakers and connect them together using the speaker wire.

IMPORTANT: make sure the RCA switch is set to "LINE" (this deactivates the speakers' Phono Preamp, we'll use the turntable's preamp instead).

2.0 SET UP YOUR AT-LP60X TURNTABLE

Please refer to this quick video to get your AT-LP60X turntable set up.

2.1

SUPER IMPORTANT: when you have the body of the turntable unpacked, locate the pre-amp switch on the back and make sure it’s set to LINE OUT.

3.0 CONNECT YOUR TURNTABLE TO THE SPEAKER

Now connect your turntable to the speaker using the RCA cable. 

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.

3.2

Press the volume knob to cycle through the inputs until hear your turntable (you can also press the "RCA" button on the remote). MUSICA!

    4.0 UPGRADES (SOLD SEPARATELY)

    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

      Kanto Speaker Stands displace speaker vibrations from your turntable and look great. They are available in table-top and floorstanding models.

      4.2

      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 Kanto speakers wirelessly. Ensure that you have followed step 1.3 above - connecting the two speakers. You can skip step 3.0 above and follow these connection instructions:

      4.1.1

      Activate the speaker's Bluetooth mode by pressing the Bluetooth button on the remote as shown below.

      Kanto YU4 / YU6 Speaker Remote

      A flashing blue LED on the bottom left of the active speaker indicates that it is in pairing mode. When this light turns to a solid blue, that means that it has been successfully paired via Bluetooth.

      4.1.2

      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).
