    I purchased this as my first turntable to use with my home stereo system. It seems that many in my generation (mid to late 20's) are interested in exploring vinyl, and many artists put out limited releases of their new albums on vinyl, so I wanted to be part of that. I thought listening to some non-compressed audio (or less compressed at least) would be good for my brain.

    I had enjoyed using my parents' turntable growing up; the whole romance of moving the tonearm intro position, and dropping the stylus down in the the record seemed much more appealing to me than pressing play on my childhood boom box cd player... or an mp3 player/computer today. The turntable i grew up using was a nice Marantz belt driven model, and I wanted to replicate the quality of those experiences without spending the money for a pro-ject or something like that. I had always hated the gimmicky "looks old-timey" but sounds like garbage turntables (the kind with built in speakers in a faux wood cabinet), and wanted to steer clear of the lower end models that were fully automatic and couldn't be upgraded with a better cartridge, or anything else.

    Read about this model, that it was the least expensive thing that would pass for good, and I liked the fact that it had a pre-amp built in, since i just have 'computer' speakers at the moment, which of course do not have a phono pre-amp, just left and right line level RCA inputs. And since many A/V receivers these days do not offer phono pre-amp circuitry either, I decided that was a good feature to have for my budget of about 200 dollars.

    I don't care about the USB, so I have never used that... I don't have a large vinyl collection i want digitized, i have a large mp3 collection i want vinylized!

    I'm also not using this to DJ, so i can not comment on the quality of the motor or whatever for keeping up with scratching. And although it looks a lot like the technics model that costs 6 times as much, i doubt it's a replacement for that, if that's what you are used to.

    There are some issues with resonance, for example if i tap lightly with my fingers on the top deck of the turntable while the stylus is in contact with the record, you can hear it resonating through the speakers. The platter is undampened with any sort of material on the underside, and the tone arm is fairly lightweight, which probably contributes to this. I could see this being a problem for a DJ where the start and stop button push is picked up as a chunkchunk sound. There is however no motor noise or anything like that that is picked up in normal operation, so i don't mind this, it's just something i noticed.

    All in all, a great first turntable to add to your home audio system if you want to see what listening to vinyl is all about, and i'm sure it would be a suitable replacement for an aging turntable that isn't of significant original quality to justify a new belt and cartridge to bring back up to snuff.

    Way to complicated

    All I wanted was a very basic system to record old records to MP3...This has become so complicated that I want to throw it away!

      Very simple to use and set up turntable. Using with Pioneer BS22LR speakers, TCC TC750LC phono preamp, and Topping Tp30 Mark II amp. Amazing sound quality, wonderful variety of professional features (strobe sensor, target light, professional 45 adapter, etc), and a great price. Don't recommend the stock preamp, though, definitely get an external phono preamp.

      So far I love this record player! I now have to keep ordering vinyl of all the albums I want, but it is really worth the investment in this machine. I especially love that I can convert my lps to digital recordings, though I have yet to delve into that part of the player because I have been so distracted by just listening to all my records that were sitting in a shelf unused (was playerless for a few years). Definitely worth buying.

            Have just recently received the item and have not yet had a chance to test it. However, the item was delivered with all components included. Checked it carefully and there is no damage nor any scratches.

            At present I'm rating it at 4 due to website experience, speediness of delivery and the condition of the item upon arrival. This may change (up or down) once we get it connected and fully checked out.

                    I recently got back into playing vinyl and wanted to update my old 80's technics turntable without breaking the bank. After a few weeks of research I settled on the AT-LP120 USB.

                    The TT is built solid and I can see it lasting a long time (with proper care of course). I really like the looks not to mention that I can play 33's, 45's and 78's. It was easy to set up and the records play great. The additional function of being able to record to my computer is an added bonus. I wasn't looking for that feature, but it's there if I need it. The only negative thing I can think of is that I wish the cables were just a tad longer. Other than that a great TT for everyday use.
                    Highly recommended.

                    Extremely good product. Sound like a charm. It comes calibrated from the factory and the set up is easy and smooth. Took me 30 min to make it play.I watchet the tutorial on youtube so came easy. Only one concern regarding the pre amp. Even though you by pass it the signal still goes through electronically component making the sound a little bit soft. I removed it from the first day and now there is no difference between my unit and a Sony 1200 series. If you are medium handy the pre amp removal is not hard, take about one hour( that was me) or can do it at one music shop will cost about - $ and makes all the money. pop up light seems to be kind of useless not really necessary but looks good on the unit.

                      the turntable plays very well for the price point and the speed of the table is very accurate. the included at95e cartridge & stylus are great and i have no complaints at all with the stylus/tonearm. the platter came a little warped and it needs to be built up with extra thick slip mats to get the right tonearm angle. other than that i've had no issue using this record player.

I am now digitizing my must hear records and making copies onto cd's which I can now listen to while driving or at my second home. The turntable was easy to set up and the software (Audacity) easy to load onto my MacBook. I was up and running in an hour.

                      I am very happy with this turntable. Lots of features, very heavy and well built. It has all the tone arm adjustments one may need to ensure perfect tracking. At this price, I thought I might have to upgrade the cartridge but the stock cartridge sounds and tracks fine. I was also happy to find the RCA output has both line (pre-amped) and phone outputs.

                          Plugged this into my existing stereo unit and have been delighted with the results. The sound quality is excellent and with features such as anti-skid and the adjustable tone arm weight, it has brought new life to my old vinyl collection. The quartz timer on the turntable means that you always get the perfect speed. It looks great and performs even better, I'm extremely pleased with this product.

                          Great turntable with manual controls and a switchable built in preamp. The included cables make it easy to digitize my records. Great for listening through a stereo or just powered speakers.

                              Really easy to set up and easy to use. The 3 speed feature is great when you have old 78 RPM vinyls to play. My vinyl collection thanks it too.

                                Just the perfect product if you wanna go back to the real crispy easy listening sound of a vinyl record. This is labelled as a professional DJ product. But it is perfect for listening to your old and new records. Outstanding!
