We've improved and elevated the Audio-Technica AT-LP120-USB to a high fidelity turntable so you can listen to, play, enjoy and record your LPs and 78s for many, many years. You'll be pleasantly surprised how good this HiFi direct drive turntable sounds. It's built for durability and heavy like the Technics SL-1200 turntable, has all the bells and whistles you'll need out of the box, and treats your records like a seraphim.

The AT-LP120-USB is a 3-speed (33-1/3, 45, 78 RPM) fully manual direct drive turntable designed for superior sound quality, durability and top notch performance. A complete turntable system, it can be quickly setup and ready to play within about 10 minutes. Everything you need is practically included out of the box such as a pre-installed Nagaoka MP-110 MP110 phono cartridge and built-in phono preamp.

Optimized for HiFi Sound Quality
In a typical direct drive turntable system, motor vibration is transmitted to the record platter and thus muddles the sound. We address this with the LP Gear Z Mat. It isolates and decouples the record from the platter that sits on the motor so that the stylus can trace and retrieve groove information with minimal extraneous vibration and noise. Remember, these minute deviations are transmitted and magnified as they traverse the sound system. For optimal sound quality, we check and align the Nagaoka MP-110 - a phonograph cartridge capable of musical performance that is completely satisfying and fulfilling. Instructions to balance the tonearm and set the proper tracking force are provided in the manual.

So how does the LP Gear Improved AT-LP120-USB HiFi turntable sound?
Musical performance is very satisfying and fulfilling. Music sounds so good. Tracking and bass impact are exceptional and the music has an effortless ebb and flow no matter if you are listening to classic rock or pure classical, with everything in-between. It makes you want to jump up and dance, tap your feet, nod your head or sit back to enjoy. The sound is full, harmonically complete, flowing, dynamic. No, it is not in the same class as our high end belt drive turntables but it's so enjoyable to use that most will probably not care.

You'll also enjoy the quick start, electronic brake, pop-up stylus target light, easy tonearm height adjustment, stroboscopic platter speed indicator and other little details that make this turntable so useful and such a joy to use. It's a turntable owners dream toy!
