    I am so very disappointed. The design and features and look of this turntable are great.

    But after setting it up we found that only the Left channel was working and the right channel is dead, whether on Line Out or Phono Out. We checked the stylus, the wiring of the stylus, fiddled with the arm height, weight, skate force, tried different records. We soo wanted this to be fixable. But sadly no.

    Defective product out of the box so back it goes.

    I so wanted to believe that the reviews that were negative here were one off lemon examples. But now I think I'll buy a different product and buy it locally not over the web.

    Disappointed.

        Comments about AUDIO-TECHNICA Audio Technica AT-LP120-USB Direct-Drive Professional Turntable:

        I have collected vinyl most of my adult life,starting in the late 1960`s.During the 1970`s and 1980`s,I was involved in the Disco/Dance/Club scene and always wanted one of the turntables that every DJ had a pair of back then(no need mentioning brands here),but even back then,they were prohibitively expensive,at least for me.Fast forward to 2017...I still have all my records,which are now nearly 40 years old,andmost of which are so rare that they will never be available on CD,or for download....and I needed a new turntable..In my opinion,the Audio-Technica LP120 blows any other consumer turntable out of the water and even has the same look and features of that previously mentioned turntable,which now is even more expensive,and AT has done it at a remarkable price!I have mine hooked to a mid level shelf audio system and the sound is GREAT!I didn`t buy this to transfer my vinyl to CD,but that is an option with the included software...It is VERY easy to set up,and would probably sound even better if I had it hooked up to a better stereo!The fit and finish is spectacular!All in all,it is the nicest and most elegant turnatble I have ever owned,and I am thrilled to have it...At age 65,I figure It will last me from here on out.

          Comments about AUDIO-TECHNICA Audio Technica AT-LP120-USB Direct-Drive Professional Turntable:

          So When I first got this record player I fell in love with it. However over time with me learning a little more about turn tables I realized you should test your anti-skate and I discovered mine was broken. With a little research I found this is a pretty common problem that will slowly wear your records into being ruined. I love how it sounds and was start to upgrade my player to make it even better but after finding people where jerry rigging it to work properly with no help from Audio-Technica. That and they have also discontinued their heavier counter weight if you wanna upgrade your cartridge, and even using a think cork mat the tone arm doesn't quite sit level. With all of the Problems with a not really cheap player for someone with my salary I have been put quite sour, I plan on selling mine before I ruin any good records and upgrade with a new table, on that come with better materials and hopefully less problems.

                          This is a perfect turntable for casual listening, obviously I would not recommend it for scratching as it is a belt drive, but it does a very good job for listening and vinyl sampling.

                              It is a fully manual turntable. Styled as an SL-1200, with similar features, it's allows for various cartridge height in thanks to the tonearm height adjustment. The rumble and wow & flutter are fair for a direct drive table. I have upgraded from the supplied cartridge, but for average users it's sufficient. The switchable preamp is a nice touch for today's audio equipment that doesn't have a dedicated phono input. That, or for direct connection to a computer for USB use.

                                Comments about AUDIO-TECHNICA Audio Technica AT-LP120-USB Direct-Drive Professional Turntable:

                                This record player has the best sound you'll ever find for this price. The money for other budget turntables tends to go into design rather than sound quality. This is quick to set up, easy to use and it sounds great with good speakers. Because of the limited features, it isn't very customizable. We tried to use a cork mat, but it's thicker than the standard mat provided with this turntable. Since we can't raise the tonearm to compensate, it resulted in a little bit of sound distortion. But if you're not looking to spend a lot of money on a turntable to start with, this can help restrain the urge to spend money on all the little upgrades. This is still hands down the best turntable in this price range.
