- QuestionWill this work with a regular (1990s) stereo (Analog)? (11 Answers)Answers
Hi old timer! I started buying LPs in 1957. You can use this unit with your old amp/receiver. It has switch-selectable mag cartridge or line level outputs. However you connected your old turntable, you can connect this one the same way.
- QuestionReview states no automatic return. Does the arm come up at the end of a record or does it continue to scrape against the record label? (10 Answers)
- QuestionDo I also need to purchase a needle? (10 Answers)Answers
It comes with one that works very well, so no. But I did end up upgrading to a Shure-M77, which gives you a little more range and less record wear. The one it comes with is of very good quality (exceptional if you consider the price of the unit)
- QuestionDo you need to use a separate pre-amp when connecting this turntable to a home theater amp with no dedicated phono input? (10 Answers)Answers
- QuestionDo you have to buy speakers seperate? (10 Answers)Answers
Yes, as this turntable has no built in speaker. But it does have it's own built in amp. So you don't need an individual amp or amp/receiver. But you do have to have a speaker with it's own power source, like computer speaker or some of the larger portable stereo speakers that are out now. The switch on the back of the turntable needs to be switched to 'phono' if you have the RCA plugs out to a receiver/stereo system with an amp. If you are using powered speakers (stand alone) then the switch on the back needs to be switched to 'line out' to utilize the internal amp in the turntable. I plug into a marshall stereo speaker which has it's own power source. Wonderful sounding for a small all in one speaker but a bit pricy. You can get less expensive powered speakers or a good set of computer speakers and plug in via 'line out' from the turn table.

- QuestionNeed A Receiver to Work? (5 Answers)
I recently got the AT-LP120 as a gift but have not been able to use it because I think it needs a receiver to work. Is that correct? I have a sonos playbar, a TV with 3.5mm jack and USB port, and a blu ray player with a USB port and I was hoping I could just plug it into one of these but none produce sound. Help.Answers
Not exactly. This turntable does have a built in amp but you need to flip the switch on the back to line out and plug into a powered speaker. Like computer speakers or some other speaker that has it's own power source. Not sure if your sonos playbar does or not. The switch on the back can either be on phono (if what you are plugging into has an amp, like a receiver/stereo system) or switch to line out and again plug into powered speaker. The USB on this turntable I do not believe can be plugged in to another component to 'listen' to whats on the turntable. The USB on this turntable is for ripping songs off a record to the usb. Hope this helps.
