AT-LP1240-USB : Professional DJ Direct-Drive Turntable (USB & Analog)

Audio-Technica’s 50 year journey started in a Tokyo garage with a high quality turntable cartridge so the new LP1240-USB is something of a return to the company roots. More than that it is also a response to the growing demand for vinyl and decks both by pro DJ’s and clubs and also by music lovers who are increasingly re-creating the stereo home listening experience.

Designed to deliver exceptional music reproduction even under the most demanding professional applications the new turntable offers a host of high-performance features making it ideal for pro, mobile and club DJ use, and its sleek, gloss black design complements any home music system.

A powerful direct-drive 16-pole, three-phase motor delivers a starting torque of more than 4.5 which is plenty of power for rapid start DJ cueing and controlled slower starts and both start-up and slow-down speed/time can be variably adjusted. DJ-friendly features include forward/reverse, two stop/start buttons for portrait or landscape orientations, a damped cast-aluminum platter with stroboscopic speed markings and slip mat, an illuminated speed indicator, adjustable +/-10% and 20% pitch control , a removable stylus target light, a dedicated tone arm grounding lug and a hydraulically-damped lift lever.

Also perfect for home users the LP1240-USB’s sleek, elegant gloss-black and silver design fits into any stereo music or home entertainment system, and its built-in switchable phono preamp enables it to be used with a wide variety of receivers, powered speakers and other A/V components. The S-shaped tone arm incorporates an adjustable tracking force counterweight/anti-skate adjustment and a removable universal cartridge mount. A hi-fi type AT95 cartridge is supplied as standard.

The turntable’s USB output allows direct connection to a computer without any special drivers, making it easy to transfer vinyl to digital music files that can be played back on a portable audio device like an Apple® iPod®, iPhoneTM, iPadTM and iPod touch®, or in the car or at home. The Audacity® software supplied is PC- and Mac®-compatible and in addition to vinyl to digital conversion also offers audio editing features including equalisation and click/noise removal.
