The Audio-Technica LP120-USB direct drive turntable is a no-fuss, affordable entry point into the world of vinyl records.
this is a shitty nasty cheap version of the technics
This turntable is a load of cheap crap.
I hate this turntable.
….. why lower the needle before turning the turn table ON?
Definitely a great table for the new vinyl fan. If you want to get decent sound, and be able to customize or upgrade your listening experience, The is a great one to start with.
Please do tell people that there is also a huge potential on getting a noisy motor!…. I wish someone told me about that!!
is this turntable also compatible to listen with headphones?
Another channel ripped off your video called Edy Approved. Added a few seconds at the start of the video to make it look like his own.
HOW DO YOU PLUG THIS INTO A WALL
Does the mechanism of this turntable produces some noise ?
does this have a headphone jack? and if not how would i go about using one with this particular model?
I purchased this turntable and it works pretty good for an entry level turntable. I destroyed the stylus in less than a week but that was just because I wanted to listen to Robin Trower while I was drunk. New rule: no drunk record playing!
The sound quality is pretty good but the internal preamp is weak. I need to crank up the volume quite a bit. Also I hear the hum of the motor through the speakers during silence. That’s what you get with direct drive. My next one will be belt drive. I did tons of research and most experts agree that music recorded during the analog era will always sound better on vinyl records if the equipment is good quality. Of course digitally mastered or remastered will sound best on digital equipment. This is not my opinion, look it up.
LP120 is a pretty good deck for the price and it looks like my SL-1200 from Japan!
man that platter is crooked…
pioneer made this copy first man wake up
I like vintage dual , rotel ,denon ,sansui and yahama and sony . I sold the dual . The sony and sansui needed a little work but hey I have all winter . I have had new ones but the vintage turntables perform just as good .
Are you kidding, the build quality of the SL-1200 is so much better, the platter is better, the motor is bette. Is the SL-120 good for its price… I’d say yes, but it’s no budget-friendly SL-1200.
These new DD turntables with pitch control are nice, but why are they ALL manual? Can’t they at least put in auto-stop? Like the 1970s Technics we all know and love.
I love this turntable
Is this built in speakers?
I don’t disagree with features if you are an aspiring DJ, but why does anyone want are need the features they give you. The arm is high mass, which is not good if you use a high end cartridge. Sometimes you need to gauge what you’re buying and adjust for your use. The low middle Pro-ject or Music Hall will give you more capability for playing records for entertainment.
“affordable” ? Isn’t that a mid-range turntable?
Wow the platter is clearly warped. Not the rubber pad but the platter itself.
If You are a Scritchy Scratchy DJ this TT Is Prefect. Because that Is the Market this Is Meant for. It comes with a Weak Anti-Skate for High Pressure so Your Scratch stays In the Groove. Not Aimed at the Audiophile Market but got picked up by them. I sold Mine after doing all the Mods and A great TT It turned out to be. I now Have a SL-1210mk2. Which I loose the 78 facility though.
Flossy, please check out the JBL Control X Wireless Speakers. #salute
Piece of junk the anti skate never worked from day1 nasty junk
“bunch of cables”? you mean one?
Fuk off its like $500
I would recommend this turntable, I have one. It is a nice entry level turntable for the price. It has 3 different outputs. A USB , so you can plug it into a laptop and listen to records, and even record them, with no other gear needed. 2nd – It has an RCA pre-amp output – so no need for a phono input on your amp. 3rd- It has the traditional phono output, preferred by audiophiles. A year latter I changed out the cartridge and upgraded to a better one.
Why the hell is the difference between this and a Gemini xl-500??
Can i connect headpnones directly to this turntable?
Made in China with cheap parts.
Do you need speakers to listen to the records or does it have built in speakers
Cheap crap. But then Again most turntables are at this price point.
Wondering why no testing of this turntable, for example, does the anti-skate function work? Also, why can’t the supplied cartridge be leveled for correct VTA. After all, the turntable has a VTA adjustment feature and the cart is supplied.
I once owned a pair of the original Technics 1200. At a distance the LP120 looks like a clone of the Technics 1200. At close inspection I was put of by the faux brushed metal body. It looks to be completely made of plastic including the tone arm.
This is a very good decent “ENTRY” level turntable. Yes just another Hanpin turntable. Gemsound also has this exact turntable. It’s called the Gemsound DJL-2000. The only difference is the strobe speed light is blue instead of red. In the end though it is what it is….a Technics SL-1200MK2 clone with extra gimmicky features.
I recently bought an ATLP60 instead of this one. Did I make the wrong choice? it’s the same company anyway someone should do a test sound comparison to see if they sound alike
Is it true that you can just connect this turntable directly to a powered speaker? What are the specifications of the speakers? Thanks for this great video..
IS THAT HAVE USB PORT TO TRANSFER FILE TO PC?
