What is the main difference between AT LP1240 USB vs AT LP1240 USBXP?
Asked by: Bryan
Allow me to add my two cents as well. :-) Not only is the cartridge/ stylus included, but the XP edition has a satin finish. I also have the LP120USB, and find myself constantly wiping finger prints off the surface.
