The Audio-Technica AT-LP120XUSB direct-drive turntable builds on the success of the popular AT-LP120USB professional turntable. This updated record player incorporates USB connectivity for direct output to a computer. This feature makes it easy to digitize your record collection. Audio-Technica added a new DC servo direct-drive motor to the AT-LP120XUSB. Further improvements include an adjustable anti-skate control and selectable phono preamp. Even with all its upgrades, this turntable sports the familiar look and feel of the beloved 1200-style DJ turntable made famous by Technics.

Solid construction with high-fidelity sound
The AT-LP120XUSB turntable has a rugged body and a die-cast aluminum platter. Its heavy-duty construction helps limit vibration, resonance and feedback for improved sound quality. A hinged dust cover protects the AT-LP120XUSB and can close while a record is playing. The quartz-controlled pitch slider lets you fine-tune the speed at which a record is played.

High-performance phono cartridge and stylus
The AT-LP120XUSB direct-drive professional turntable features an S-shaped tonearm with adjustable tracking force. It is fitted with an AT-HS6 universal 1/2" mount headshell with an AT-VM95E Dual Magnet phono cartridge. The cartridge uses an elliptical stylus, but is also compatible with any VM95 Series replacement stylus. This elliptical stylus is great for all-around listening and is easy on your vinyl. A plug-in target light illuminates the record so you can see exactly where to place the needle.

User-friendly controls
With a layout that is immediately familiar to professional DJs and audiophiles, the Audio-Technica AT-LP120XUSB turntable features a simple on/off dial, start/stop button and speed selector buttons. A simple button beside the pitch slider locks the pitch at zero. Select from either 78, 45 or 33-1/3 RPM speeds with user-friendly buttons. An adapter is also included, which allows you to play 7” 45 RPM records. The turntable’s stroboscopic platter and speed indicator let you check the platter’s rotation speed and verify its consistency. 

Switchable preamp, detachable RCAs and USB

Listen to your favorite vinyl by connecting the AT-LP120XUSB to external speakers using RCA ports on the rear connection panel. Thanks to a switchable preamp, you can connect the turntable to external stereo components, whether they have a dedicated phono output or not. Detachable RCA plugs mean easier maintenance in the long run. A convenient USB output makes it simple to convert your record collection to high-resolution digital files using any laptop or desktop computer.
