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'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.

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

      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!!!

                    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.

                      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.
