How to Connect to Speakers
The speakers I have use these types of wires to connect to a stereo (picture below). Will I be able to use these for the AT-LP60-USB? How can I connect?

No you will not. These wires are for connecting (passive type) speakers to a stereo amplifier or receiver. To use your current speakers you would need to connect the turntable to inputs on a stereo amplifier or receiver first, then connect your speakers to the speakers outputs on that amplifier or receiver. Note that the turntable does not contain a POWER amplifier for driving passive loudspeakers. As an alternative however, if you do not have a stereo amplifier or receiver, the turntable may be connected directly to POWERED loudspeakers. Powered speakers contain their own power amplifiers and will have inputs of various types that will accommodate the connection of the turntable. They will also have a volume and, in most cases, a tone control to permit adjustment of the volume and tone.
