Product Description

Audio-Technica – AT-LP120XUSB – Direct Drive Turntable with USB – Black

The Audio-Technica AT-LP120XUSB is a mid-range direct-drive turntable introduced in 2009 by the Japanese audio equipment manufacturer Audio-Technica. The AT-LP120XUSB was intended to be a viable replacement for the long-running Technics SL-1200 series of turntables that was set to be discontinued in 2010. It supports both phono and line-level output using a built-in preamplifier.

The turntable also has the ability to dub records directly to a computer in real-time using a USB connection. At the January 2019 Consumer Electronics Show, an updated version called the AT-LP120XUSB was announced by Audio Technica. According to the company, the new model includes an improved internal preamp and comes with the company’s updated VM95E cartridge.
