Long respected for their turntable phono cartridge technology, Audio Technica have included their popular AT95E MM (Moving Magnetic) phono cartridge in the LP120 USB and result is quite literally, music to your ears!
Vinyl Records have made a huge comeback over the past 10 years and many Vinyl owners want to digitise their record collections. The benefits are obvious however the quality is very much dependent on the equipment used. The Audio Technica AT-LP120-USB features a built-in analog to digital converter capable of 44.1 or 48K 16 bit resolution that connects to your Mac or PC via a USB port.
Audio Technica have also included Audacity software for Mac and Windows computers which not only records your vinyl, it will help to remove much of accumulated pops and scratches.
Finally, the LP120 USB also comes complete with a range of useful accessories as well as a sturdy, hinged dustcover.
We aren’t aware of any other turntables at this price point that can begin to compete with the Audio Technica’s build quality, sound, feature set and ease of use.
Audio Technica has hit a clear bulls eye with the LP120 USB.
The AT-LP120-USB is extremely well made, packaged and presented equally well, including excellent
instructions for both vinyl playback and computer interface. With its generous included accessory set the Audio Technica LP120 USB is fabulous value. This is the ideal deck for DJ’s and Vinyl enthusiasts alike!
