    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:

      Like many here, my turntable was great until it quit spinning the platter. Mine was just past a year old when it happened. Unlike many here, I actually opened it up to see if it was something obvious, and it is. The PCB boards are so poorly mounted they flex all over the place so you end up with broken solder runs on the logic board that distributes power to the DC motor. And with no parts support, its not like you can just order a new one. And even if you could, you should be handy with a soldering iron in order to replace it, as it's melted right to the tone arm.

      This is a disappointing product, especially at the price point it's sold at. Premium features don't mean anything if they are delivered in third rate components.

      • Questionable quality on its parts

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

        Having done my homework on this unit, despite a number of owners complaining about warped platters and poor anti-skate function, I decided to listen to the many very positive reviews and went ahead with the purchase. I've owned a number of high quality turntables for 20+ years (Tech 12's, Pioneer 1000, Stanton t92), and because I'm particular about them, I was apprehensive prior to its delivery. I was hoping for a basic deck that produced good sound, had a built in preamp, and had USB functionality. This seemed to check all of the boxes..

        Upon its arrival, I was impressed with its packaging, the weight and craftsmanship of the unit, and how much it looked like my old Technic 1200 mk2's. So far so good. After all of the various installations and tonearm alignment & balancing, I was up and running in about 20min. I placed a record on the platter, hit the start button, and immediately noticed the problem I was dreading.. The platter was significantly warped. For anyone who knows turntables, this is a big issue as it will affect playback and in turn, cause added stress to your cartridge, stylus, and your precious vinyl. My guess it that because these are mass produced, the parts are prone to becoming compromised. This was what many had written about in the many reviews Inread prior to buying the unit, especially in relation to the warped platter. It's truly a shame because this TT has so much potential. It produces great sound for a deck in this price range, and overall it has sturdy craftsmanship, making it a steal for entry level DJ or casual listening turntables. The lesson here was that I should have went with Audio Technica's flagship model, the AT LP1240, as it truly is a premiere deck aimed at people like myself who are looking for a high end experience. I still have the option to return this deck, which I most certainly will. I just hope that the warped platter isn't an issue that is tied to the 1240 as well.

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

          Was very happy with this product until it completely died on me this week. I mean it was seriously great at first, it was easy to set up, it has a beautiful and sleek design, and it was such an upgrade from my el cheapo turntable that my parents bought me! But that being said, I have literally only had this turntable for 7 months and it is ALREADY BROKEN. When you go to press the start button the plate won't turn, thus I can only infer that the motor is kaputt as this is a direct drive and has no belt. This is with VERY casual and gentle use, only using it maybe a few times per week. I am super upset because it seemed like such a good decision at the time, "a great set up for not too much $$!!" Still can't believe it but my advice is, save your money and buy a real turntable y'all, I'm very lucky to have had it break within the one year warranty.

                I've had this turntable for about 4 years. I've probably used it once a month over that time, and it has sounded great. BUT ... Today I turned it on and the table won't turn anymore. No help to be found online, either. Really disappointing.

                  Needed an upgrade, the briefcase ones have built in speakers and a heavy arm, move up and down damaging vinyls. This turntable is better if you have like $30 more bucks, provided you have non Bluetooth speakers. Better quality and moves the arm so you don't have to.

                      Excellent turntable with quality features expected with higher end turntables. Sound and range is superb especially with high quality recordings.. Replacing a higher end turntable I had for years with a Sure needle and meet, as well as, exceeds performance with the AT 97 needle. And you certainly can't complain about the contemporary design...matches our house and media room. Love it -

                          The AT LP120 not only looks great but sounds great! Previous turntable {Dual, 1970's} was also great but this AT LP120 plays circles around it! Setup was a snap, controls are easy to use and function as expected. The audio through an older Kenwood receiver is superb, full range sound is breathtaking. Classical, jazz, pop....all sound live! The supplied cart is excellent and complements the turntable. Thanks Audio.Technica for a great, affordable and feature.filled turntable!!!
