Audio-Technica announced its new top-of-the-line AT-LP1240-USB Professional DJ Turntable, offering a host of high-performance features that make it ideal for pro, mobile and club DJ use, and its sleek, gloss black design complements any home music system.

The AT-LP1240-USB is built to deliver exceptional music reproduction even under the most demanding conditions of professional use. It utilizes a powerful direct-drive 16-pole, three-phase motor for unwavering speed stability along with easy back-cueing, forward and reverse play and quiet operation at 33-1/3, 45 or 78 RPM. The turntable features an S-shaped tone arm with adjustable tracking force (counterweight) and anti-skate adjustment and a removable universal cartridge mount (cartridge available separately). The tone arm has locking height adjustment to dial in the vertical tracking angle (VTA), an important feature for achieving the most accurate-possible record playback.

The AT-LP1240-USB comes with numerous additional DJ-friendly features including a damped cast-aluminum platter with stroboscopic speed markings and slip mat, an illuminated speed indicator and adjustable pitch control, a start/stop button, a removable stylus target light, a dedicated tone arm grounding lug, a hydraulically-damped lift lever and a locking tone arm rest that keeps the arm and cartridge in place during transport.

The AT-LP1240-USB is also perfect for home users. Its sleek, elegant gloss-black and silver design fits into any stereo music or home entertainment system, and its built-in switchable phono preamp enables it to be used with a wide variety of receivers, powered speakers and other A/V components.

The turntable’s USB output allows direct connection to a computer without any special drivers, making it easy to transfer favorite records to digital music files that can be played back on a portable audio device like an Apple iPod, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, or in the car or at home.

The AT-LP1240-USB includes the turntable, PC- and Mac-compatible software, a USB cable, audio adapter cables, removable dust cover, 45 RPM adapter, adjustable leveling feet and accessories. The supplied Audacity software converts the audio on a record to digital audio files and offers audio editing features including equalization and click/noise removal.

Price and Availability
The Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB will be available in March 2012 for $529.95.
