  • Overview

    The AT-LP240-USB is a superbly made high-performance USB turntable designed for home use. The turntable’s USB output allows direct connection to a computer without any special drivers, making it easy to transfer records to digital music files that can be played back on a portable audio device. Built to deliver exceptional sound, the AT-LP240-USB utilizes a direct-drive high-torque multi-pole motor for unwavering speed stability, and features an S-shaped tone arm with adjustable tracking force and anti-skate adjustment and removable cartridge mount (cartridge available separately), and a damped cast-aluminum platter with a felt slip mat.

    The AT-LP240-USB plays back 33-1/3, 45 and 78 RPM records. Its built-in phono preamp enables the turntable to be connected to a wide variety of music and home entertainment systems, powered speakers, and to A/V receivers that do not include a dedicated phono input. The turntable includes PC- and Mac-compatible Audacity® software that converts the audio on a record to MP3, WAV or other format digital audio files.
