Great Item and good customer service:)
29 December 2011
Summary: Purchased this item for my wife, placed a big smile on her face this Christmas. She loves old LP's and wanted to listen and record them onto her Mac. Only issue is I had to download the new software and had some issues on the Mac setting, but when I called Technica not only were they helpful and resolved my issues they were all in the USA:):) Plan to do business with this company AND Amazon again!
Summary: I know this is a Technics knock-off but the quality is definately there. There are no aparent shortcuts in the arm gears and the base is properly weighted for vibration control. For home Hi-Fi, It sure ain't bad. I think its ruggedness will serve the vinyl user until that user decides exactly how deep he or she wants to go into the hobby. Great product, good price and handsome good looks.
Summary: Just bought AT-LP 240 USB turntable from Beach Camera (seller). All I can say is WOW! This turtable is everything I expected. Fist of all it is really heavy, probably between 30-40 lbs. It is a very nice looking turntable, not a solid corner on the whole thing, and the black is very appealing and modern. As far a sound goes, lets just say the HOUSE IS A ROCKIN' NOW! It's such a huge improvment over the old Panosonic I had.
Summary: Very nice turntable. Nice heavy platter, the whole turntable is heavy duty and well made. I bought this as an upgrade for my recording studio. It replaced a couple hundred dollar Denon and I couldn't be happier. Plays 78's and sounds great!
An even better deck than the AT-LP120 (but not by enough)
23 July 2011
Summary: I purchased this turntable as an upgrade from a DJ-style Numark TT200. The aesthetics of this unit are attractive, it is a very clean looking deck in glossy piano black finish. It has a bit more of a rounded "soap bar" look to it than I was expecting, but this gives it a more modern look than the AT-LP120 (styled after the classic Technics SL1200 decks). In retrospect I should have realized this, but the the lid that comes with the unit is not attached in any way.
Summary: I have few egg-crateful of LP's and 3 feet worth of 45's that I have sporadically listened to on an Old Marantz direct drive turntable. It has an Ortofon OM10 cartridge. I have been happy with the setup for some time but decided it was time to upgrade. I bought an Audio Technica 440mla from Amazon.com and it did change the sound definition and clarity. But I wanted more. I always coveted a Technics 1200 but didn't want to spend $1000 for a turntable.
high value for under $400 on a audiophile turntable

Summary: I bought this from amazon partner Beach Camera. The price was $369 includes shipping. First off the overall construction and quality is very high I would say 5 out of 5. the ease of setup is fantastic, up and running in a matter of minutes. Packaging is excellent. The unit is very heavy and sits well. the feet are multi rotational and help in setting up a solid foundation. If I had anything bad to say it would be 1.ships without any cartridge/stylus and 2.
Summary: I received this unit yesterday and set it up last night in about an hour. I was immediately impressed by the quality of construction. The unit is very heavy and radiates an air and look of an 'audiophile' piece. I purchased a Shure M97 cartridge to go with it and am equally impressed with that. The packaging was excellent.
