About the Audio-Technica ATLP-120XUSB

Digitize your favorite cuts, or play them live

The Audio-Technica LP-120XUSB turntable is made for sharing your favorite vinyl. You can connect its USB output to your Mac® or PC to digitize your albums, so they can travel with you in your smartphone. (Free 3rd-party Audacity software recommended.)

If you like to DJ, the ‘table features a high-torque direct-drive motor that gets any record — 33-1/3, 45, or 78 rpm — up to speed in a hurry. Adjustable pitch control lets you change the platter speed ±8% or ±16% for easier beat-match mixing, and a removable stylus target light helps you find your groove in a darkened club or living room. The included detachable dust cover helps keep your ‘table clean when you’re not using it.
