Great value for the price
Fully automatic functionality
Upgrades possible down the line
Solid build quality
Can be a good starting point for building a vinyl setup
Not as high quality as some more expensive turntables
Some reports of mechanical noise and buzzing
Platter could be heavier


Overall, the Audio-Technica AT-LP3BK is a solid entry-level turntable for those new to vinyl or looking for an upgrade from a lower quality player. While some reviewers suggest upgrading the cartridge, others find the included components to be satisfactory. The fully automatic functionality is a plus for some, but others prefer a more manual approach. The build quality is generally good, though some note that the platter could be heavier. There are some reports of mechanical noise and buzzing, but these seem to be isolated incidents. Upgrades are possible down the line, making this a good starting point for those looking to build a vinyl setup.
