Excellent for what you pay for!

Very surprised and happy with this turntable. It has amazing sound for what you pay for, and amazing sound in general. There is some setup required after purchase, but it isn't difficult. For sure read the directions if you are not an audiophile on the set up. Now, this turntable is pretty great quality, especially for the price, but it can be improved with only a couple inexpensive changes. The mat is kind of a point the cheaper out on. Change it if you want better performance. The needle is pretty dang good, but if you change it to a Shure-M77 it'll give you more range and less record wear, just a slightly better sound really. To sum it up: great turntable with great quality sound, especially with the price. It'll perform without any mods, but if you become an audiophile that is never satisfied with the sound quality, just those two changes will keep you satisfied for a very long time.

Best bargain around
Posted by: GPB190 from: Appleton,Wi on
I can't help smiling about the other reviews. This is an audiophile
quality turntable with a true high fidelity cartridge and stylus include in the price. You would have to pay twice the price for a comparable quality TT
from any other manufacturer and then buy a cartridge and stylus to
boot. This is without a doubt the best value for a turntable anywhere. As for not being able to stack records, anyone who knows anything about vinyl knows you do not want records dropping on each other causing
nicks and scratches. If you want to experience the true sound of vinyl
without emptying your bank account this is the turntable to get. Pair this
TT with a decent amp or receiver (Sony DH130-$118) and a good set of speakers(Pioneer BS22-LR-$129/pr.) and you have a true high fidelity, maybe even audiophile quality system for less than $500. You could easily spend $1200-1500 and not do any better.

Great build quality; auto return would be nice
Posted by: Martian from: on
In this day and age, it is reassuring to know that one can still get a turntable that has such good build quality to it. This isn't one of the flimsy, plastic-dominated belt-driven turntables that you commonly see. This is a solid, direct-drive turntable, with excellent damping. It starts up and stops instantly. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it can play 78 rpm records, in addition to the standard 33 and 45 rpm discs.
Overall, I am very pleased with the quality of this product, but I do wish it had auto return. I don't like having to rush to the turntable at the end of a record, especially if I'm listening in a different room. It should have been easy enough to include auto-return -- all of my previous turntables (including models from the 1960s) have had some form of this feature.
I haven't yet used the USB output feature of the turntable -- or the software that came with it. Right now, I'm using it primarily to listen to my old vinyl recordings.
An interesting extra that I have never seen elsewhere is a "reverse play" feature -- in case you ever wanted to know what your music might sound like when played backwards! This feature has limited utility for me, but I'm sure professional DJs and mixers might have a use for it.

Best $200 Turntable!
Posted by: PBSanDiego from: San Diego, CA on
I haven't owned a turntable in years, and so I know what I wanted and what I didn't want. This record player is build solid and is heavy with wonderful shock absorbers for feet.
I like that I can adjust up or down record playback speed as well as adjust the tracking force on the cartridge and stylus.
My only con, and I knew this going in, was that this turntable does not have a automatic tonearm return like my old one back-in-the-day. This means you must manually pickup the tonearm at the end of a record or else it will keep revolving around the center until you do. Again, this is a very minor annoyance and more of a nit-pick.
Overall, you can't go wrong with this table. Just know that it is a stereo component, so you will need speakers or a receiver to plug into for sound. (All cables and accessories included!)

excellent turn table
Posted by: hemiguy1 from: columbus ohio on
this is a nice turn table, nice heavy direct drive, designed after the famous SL 1200 by technics, looks about the same as well, being a direct drive unit thats a no brainer, has very accurate strobe light and functions well. I added a weighted chrome record clamp which helped the sound quality, I recommend this unit , Its fun to kick back and play vinyl, brings back memories, and this being usb you can run into your pc if wanted to. love it!

Best bang for your buck
Posted by: MotorCityS from: on
I had a project turntable before and hated it. This thing has a built in phono adapter and you have the option to bypass if your receiver has a phono input. Unit is very well built, very solid piece of metal makes me feel like this is an original turntable form the 70's. Music sounds great with my Pioneer Elite receiver and Klipsch tower speakers, I cannot believe how great my vinyl collection sounds. Only downside is the RCA's are hardwired and a tad short, but for the price you can extend for a few bucks. If you're in the market for a quality turntable and don;t ant to spend allot this think is amazing.

Great turntable. Elite for its price range.
Posted by: Mike from: on
This is a fantastic turntable. It really is. It has three different speed settings, a decent pre amp, a Quartz control to control the speed, and a counterweight. The cartridge is very decent as well. It is an AT 95 cartridge that alone costs 50 or 60 bucks. The build quality is pretty astonishing when considering its price. It is sturdy and constructed mainly with aluminum. It has a nice slip mat included and various cables and cords. If you wanted a Technics SL 1200 but couldn't afford the 700 dollar price tag, this is the turntable for you.

My first LP player
Posted by: yonce from: on
As a life long hip hop fan I've always been fascinated with the idea of turntables. I've never owned own until I got the Audio Technica AT-LP-120-USB. It was in stock at my local BBY so I picked it up. The first thing noticed was how heavy it was! This turntable is heavy duty! There was some assembly required so I recommend reading the instructions before you start taking things out of the box. Set up took about 30-45 minutes. Please note the RCA cable is permanently attached to the back of the turntable. I know that bothers some people but it didn't bother me as I used the RCA cables to connect to my Sony Blu Ray receiver. Everything worked fine and records sound amazing coming through the Sony home theater. There's a lot of features that i haven't even used yet like ff/rw, different RPM settings and the LP to digital feature using a PC. I am happy with my purchase and would recommend this exact turntable to anyone looking to get into Vinyl Records. My only suggestion would be is for Best Buy to stock LP's!! I wasn't able to go home with an LP but I had one at home waiting for me then went online and got some off BestBuy.com.

Excellent turntable plus can transfer vinyl to mp3
Posted by: PhysicsGuy from: on
Audio Technica products are superb. This unit weighs almost 20 lbs ... it is that solid. I have resurrected my classical music collection (vinyl) which I never replaced w/ cd's. Excellent sound quality w/ included cartridge and stylus. Very excited about this purchase.

I previously had the Sony turntable (also sold here by Best Buy). It was a good starter turntable but once I started to get more serious about collecting vinyl I decided I needed a little upgrade.
This turntable requires a lot more work out of the box to get it perfect but its worth the extra work. The needle needs to be balanced and the alignment was a little off but once I did a little research I got everything set.
Several online comments state the built-in amplifier is not very good and I would have to agree. It wasn't until I purchased a stand alone amplifier and used the by-pass switch on the turntable I really noticed an improvement in sound quality.
