    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:

        For the money, this is a great turntable. Unfortunately, it is plagued by its cheap internal preamp, which dampens the highs and muddies the lows. Bypassing it doesn't solve the issue because the signal still runs through some capacitors. The only solution is getting rid of it altogether. The are a couple of videos on Youtube showing one how to do that. I've done this to mine and the results were unbelievable. Suddenly my LP120 produced more detailed highs and tighter lows and everything just sounded clearer.

        I wish Audio Technica would sell a version of the LP120 without the internal pre amp, so us users wouldn't need to resort to such measures in order to extract the most from this otherwise brilliant turntable.

        If you guys are reading this, please make an Lp120 without the preamp. Everyone would benefit from the choice!

            Out of box, only one audio connector worked. I will need to send back entire unit because they made a very wise decision to wire the audio cables directly to the processor board. Who does that?

            The left output was broken when we received it. It's hard wired so we can't fix it.

                      I try to use this turntable to play a wide variety of records. Rock to Jazz to Classical and everything in between. I play old vinyl and newer 180 gram stuff. The sound is always distorted for deep bass. And the skipping. DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU WANT TO PLAY NEW VINYL. You know what, just don't buy this. I contacted support and they sent me a weight for the cart to prevent skipping. They didn't send along any instructions on how to use it, but after I figured it out it made the distortion way worse. Look on the web. This thing is junk. I'm sorry I ever bought it and its too late to return now. Buyer beware.

                              I bought this about two years ago brand new from my local record store that also sells new record players. I'd done my research and I knew I wanted this turntable. I was starting to really get into vinyl and wanted to upgrade to a legit record player as opposed to my previous "novelty" one. I am so so happy with this turntable. It's extremely easy to use. I feel like it's fairly sturdy (I have several cats that I catch resting on it—dust cover closed—from time to time and it's never messed up!) I sometimes wish I would have gotten the model that is identical but includes a USB drive for those old records or records that don't come with a download code, because I do still collect music digitally as well, but I love this turntable. Great sound. Never had a problem with distortion or wonkiness. 10/10 recommend!
