    Product Description

    Audio-Technica's AT-LP120-USB direct-drive, high-torque professional turntable is perfect for DJs and other music enthusiasts, especially in an era that many would call "postvinyl," when it's no longer the norm for audio/video receivers or even integrated amplifiers to offer a dedicated phono input. Connect the Audio Technica ATLP120 to your computer to digitize your old LPs (laptop not included). It also includes a selectable internal stereo phono preamplifier and a USB output that connects directly to your computer-perfect for digitizing your old LPs to high-quality MP3 or FLAC files for playback from your computer. USB cable and adapter cables are included, along with Mac- and PC-compatible Audacity software to digitize your LPs. The AT-LP120's S-shaped tone arm assembly comes with an adjustable counterweight, an antiskate adjustment, a tone-arm height adjustment and lock, a tone-arm lift with hydraulic action and lift lever, and a tone-arm rest with a locking mechanism to keep the arm stable during transport. The turntable uses a DC servo motor to maintain accurate rotational speed at either 33-1/3 45, or 78 rpm, governed by a selectable, high-accuracy quartz-controlled pitch lock-all of which gives new life to 7- and 12-inch singles you may not have played for years. Unleash your inner DJ with the 'table's pitch-adjustment feature, with variations ranging from either +/-10 percent or +/-20 percent. A pop-up stylus target light and stroboscopic platter speed indicator offer visual assistance in queuing and playing your favorite tunes. Forward and reverse play options unlock countless creative doors. The turntable comes with a cast-aluminum record platter, a slip mat, and a professional cartridge and headshell (model AT95E) that plugs directly into the tone arm. Adjustable, antivibrational feet keep the platter level, regardless of your environs. A start/stop button with remote start/stop input lets you integrate the player with your more sophisticated DJ tools. The player also includes a 45 rpm adapter with storage receptacle for the adapter and for a surplus or replacement headshell (sold separately). If the turntable is connected to a sound card, powered speakers or AUX -type inputs, set the selector to LINE, which will activate the turntable’s internal pre-amp The half-inch standard mount AT95E phonograph cartridge offers outstanding clarity and detail. Reviewers have rated this affordable, high-performance cartridge as a best buy value. Manufactured to Audio-Technica's renowned quality standards, each cartridge is meticulously assembled with remarkably tight tolerances. The elliptical diamond stylus is designed to track record grooves with high accuracy for outstanding audio reproduction. Includes mounting hardware and stylus guard.

    5.0 out of 5 stars I've Never Actually "Heard" My Vinyl Until Now!
    Reviewed in the United States on April 7, 2016
    I haven't written many reviews but I feel compelled to chime in on this one. I've had it for 4 days and have listened to vinyl every evening since it arrived. The shipping box it came in was well packaged, marked "heavy" (it is!) and everything was packed very well is inside the actual product box as well.

    Unpacking is pretty straight forward, though there are pieces taped all around the styrofoam that you'll have to cut free, but nothing was broken. First thing to do is open the manual and make sure all the parts are there; in mine all was good. I also checked the platter since a few reviews said theirs was warped; absolutely no problems with mine.

    It only took about 20 minutes to assemble following the instructions exactly as listed. This sounds stupid, but the only thing the manual doesn't show in pictures is yeah A/C plug location. I had already put it in place when I had to plug it in and because the RCA plugs aren't removable, I had already routed them through my built-in to my Onkyo receiver so I was limited in its movement. For the record, the power cable plugs in directly behind he left rear leg if facing the player; it is NOT on the same flat back surface as the USB and line out selector switch.

    Balancing the tone arm was pretty simple, and 2 grams of tracking force with 2 on skate control seems to work perfectly for me (I'm no expert but that's the recommended setting for the cartridge included).

    I bypassed the pre-amp because my receiver had one, and initial thoughts are:

    WOW! This thing sounds absolutely amazing. I've had cheaper belt-driven models and there is no comparison. The first album I played was The Lumineers and I heard backup vocals that I never knew were there! The quartz matching is spot on, it stops when you hit stop, and the light for the stylus is useful but I still had to turn on overhead lights to see where I was placing the needle exactly (nothing major, I'm sure I'll get better). I was very worrie my SO was going to be upset when she saw the price but I played AC/DC Back in Black on it and she loves it. Old vinyl sounds new, things that skipped no longer do. It's worth every penny, which is pretty good for the silver model right now!!

    If you are on the fence, stop doubting and start listening!

    I don't normally do reviews on anything but making an exception in this case. After years and years of people saying " it sounds better on vinyl " and owning a entry level player for the last 8 months just caved in and got this. It blows everything out of the park. Putting it together was fairly simple and took about 20 minutes tops. Right out of the case the Player feels solid, sturdy and classy. Had to google how to balance the tone arm but it only took a minute. Listened to the Lumineers " cleopatra " and you can hear the back vocals/ side vocals/ front vocals/ violin and the whole shabang with immense clarity. It's like someone is playing live music in your living room. Great job Audio technica!
