LAS VEGAS, NV, January 7, 2008 — CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW (CES) — At CES 2008, Audio-Technica is exhibiting its new AT-LP2D-USB LP-to-digital recording system, a complete USB turntable and software package that makes it easy to transfer vinyl records to digital media files and CDs.

The AT-LP2D-USB includes a turntable and phono cartridge, PC- and Mac-compatible software, a USB cable that connects the turntable directly to a computer, and other accessories.

Crystal Griffith, Audio-Technica Consumer Marketing Manager, noted, “Many people still own their classic LPs and 45s, and a younger generation is discovering and collecting vinyl. The AT-LP2D-USB offers users a simple, cost-effective solution for transferring records to digital files and portable players, and for listening to records on a home music system.”

The turntable features fully automatic operation, and a 33-1/3 and 45 RPM speed selector to play vinyl formats from LP albums to 12-inch and 7-inch singles. The turntable is designed to deliver high-quality sound, with a balanced aluminum platter, precision Dual Magnet stereo cartridge with replaceable stylus, and a pickup arm with soft damping control. The turntable’s supplied USB cable enables plug-and-play connection to a desktop or laptop computer. Its built-in switchable phono preamp, RCA output cables and adapter cables allow connection to a wide variety of music and home entertainment systems, and to A/V receivers that do not include a dedicated phono input.

The supplied Cakewalk PYRO (for PC) and Audacity (for Mac or PC) software converts the audio on a record to MP3, WAV or Windows Media audio files, for playback on a wide variety of portable audio players, computers, home media centers and car audio systems. The PYRO software also features DeClicker and DeNoiser utilities that automatically remove pops, clicks, noise and hiss from LP recordings, and design software for creating personalized CD jewel case artwork and CD labels.

The Audio-Technica AT-LP2D-USB LP-to-digital recording system is available immediately at a U.S. MSRP of $229.
