Audio-Technica today announced the introduction of its AT-LP120-USB Direct-Drive Turntable System, a professional-quality USB turntable and software package. The new top-of-the-line AT-LP120-USB is rugged and durable to meet the demands of professional use, and provides consumers with the flexibility to enjoy top-quality vinyl playback and easily transfer records to digital media files and CDs.

The AT-LP120-USB includes a direct-drive turntable and phono cartridge, PC- and Mac-compatible software, a USB cable and other accessories.

Crystal Griffith, Audio-Technica Consumer Marketing Manager, pointed out: “Over the past few years, vinyl has been enjoying a remarkable resurgence among music lovers of all ages. With the continuing popularity of enjoying records and dubbing them to digital media, we recognized the time was right to introduce a true high-performance USB turntable system that combines exceptional record playback performance and sound quality with total ease of use.”

The AT-LP120-USB offers a wealth of high-end performance and convenience features. The turntable features a high-torque direct-drive motor for quick start-ups with both forward and reverse “back-cueing” play capability, making it ideal for DJ as well as home use. The AT-LP120-USB offers selectable 33-1/3, 45 and 78 RPM operation, with a high-accuracy quartz-controlled pitch lock and pitch change slider control with +/-10% or +/-20% speed adjustment ranges, and a stroboscopic speed indicator. The turntable’s built-in switchable phono preamp, RCA output cables and adapter cables allow connection to a wide variety of music and home entertainment components and systems, including A/V receivers that do not have a dedicated phono input.

The AT-LP120-USB is designed to deliver superlative sound quality from LP albums, 12-inch and 7-inch singles and even 78 RPM records. It features a heavy-duty cast aluminum platter with slip mat, and a balanced pickup arm with soft damping control and adjustable tracking force, anti-skating and vertical tracking angle (VTA) for optimum playback performance. The AT-LP120-USB is supplied with a precision Dual Magnet™ stereo phono cartridge with replaceable stylus. The included USB cable enables plug-and-play connection to a computer.

The PC- and Mac-compatible Audacity software converts the audio on a record to MP3, WAV or other format digital audio files, which can then be played back on portable audio players, computers, home media centers and car audio systems. The Audacity software includes a host of audio editing features including equalization and noise removal.

The Audio-Technica AT-LP120-USB Direct-Drive Turntable System is available in November 2009 online or at Audio-Technica authorized retailers at a suggested retail price of $429.00.
