Product Info


The AT-LP120-USB is considered the best DJ turntable of its class. Audio-Technica's goal with the AT-PL240 turntable is to deliver the best sound quality. This they achieved via a special direct-drive motor that delivers exceptional rotational accuracy, precision speed stability and low resonance; dampened platter, plinth and feet for minimal resonance; and a new high-quality S-shaped tonearm of very tight tolerance. In addition, the AT-LP240 is provisioned with a detachable audio cable thus allowing its optional replacement.

The turntable's USB output allows direct connection to a computer without any special drivers, making it easy to transfer records to digital music files that can be played back on a portable audio device.

The Audio-Technica ATLP240USB plays back 33 1/3, 45 and 78 RPM records. Its built-in phono preamp enables the turntable to be connected to a wide variety of music and home entertainment systems, powered speakers, and to A/V receivers that do not include a dedicated phono preamp input. The turntable includes PC and Mac compatible Audacity® software that converts the audio on a record to MP3, WAV or other format digital audio files.
