LP120 Direct-Drive Turntable with USB & Pre-Amp
Versatile turntable with 33, 45 and 78 speeds
Useful for playing 78s, as there is a stylus suitable for playing 78s available for the VM95E cartridge.
Also the variable speed control (up to +/- 20%) allows for adjusting the speed for older recordings which vary from the 78rpm standard (eg 70 - 90 rpm).
For best results when playing 78s the Rek-O-Kut Archival Phono Pre-Amp is recommended.
The standard elliptical stylus can also be upgraded to a JICO hyper-elliptical version.
This update of the AT-LP120-USB turntable features a new DC servo direct-drive motor, along with adjustable dynamic anti-skate control and selectable phono preamplifier. The fully manual turntable plays 33-1/3, 45, and 78 RPM records and is equipped with a USB output that allows direct connection to your computer. Just download the free Mac- and PC-compatible Audacity recording software (or software of your choice) and start converting your records to digital audio files. But in addition to the USB output, the turntable also comes with a detachable dual RCA output cable and is equipped with a built-in selectable phono preamp so you can connect directly to your home stereo, whether it has a dedicated phono input or not.
The turntable features an S-shaped tonearm with adjustable tracking force and an AT-HS6 universal ½”-mount headshell with an AT-VM95E Dual Magnet™ phono cartridge. Audio-Technica has been a leader in phono cartridge design for more than 50 years, and that expertise shows in the versatile, high-performance AT-VM95E cartridge, which comes with a 0.3 x 0.7 mil elliptical stylus, but is also compatible with any VM95 Series replacement stylus, offering a wide choice of options for every budget and application.
Additional features include a die-cast aluminum platter with felt mat; a start/stop button; selectable high-accuracy quartz-controlled pitch lock and pitch change slider control with +/-8% or +/-16% adjustment ranges; a stroboscopic platter with speed indicator; a removable plug-type stylus target light; external power supply; and a removable hinged dust cover.
Available in black (AT-LP120XUSB-BK) and silver (AT-LP120XUSB-SV).
