    I am not a professional DJ, I just use this turntable for home audiophile listening. While not technically designed for that it does do very well in this regard sound quality wise.

    The dampened platter doesn't make noise.

    I did buy an expensive cartridge for it as it does not come with one.

    The speed accuracy is excellent and while this was designed for professional DJ use I found the ability to adjust braking speed and to play records in reverse rather nice things to have to customize the feel of it. The reverse feature is good because who doesn't own a record with backwards masking on it or just backwards messages?

    The radio station I am at has 2 technics SL-1200 MK II turntables and this turntable in my opinion is just as good.

    I was struck by the part quality for one thing. The tone arm lever is metal and has a screw on metal ball end. They could have easily cheaped out on plastic but did not.

    The pitch adjust slider knob is smooth however the button is made out of plastic and that is puzzling considering the other attention to making sure the parts are metal. Also when you first turn on this turntable the pitch speed is not quartz locked. You must manually push the button every time you turn the power on however when the slider is in the middle there is no need for the quartz button anyway. The slider button does not have a center click which Audio Technica should replace this slider button with the type you have on the Technics SL-1200 MK II in my opinion!

    The unit shell is made out of metal also which very much surprised me. In fact I cannot think of an electronics product made since the early 80s where the unit shell wasn't plastic. Easy to clean and won't be a problem keeping looking new especially if one is a smoker.

    I am glad I got this model instead of the AT-LP240 because of the extra controls like brake speed and start speed and reverse etc.

    There are very practical uses for speed controls for someone who is NOT a DJ. I am a musician and the ability to slow down songs to learn them is pretty valuable. You can even adjust the speed to what you are tuned to so you do not have to retune your guitar for every different album you throw on, just adjust the pitch of the song using the pitch and speed slider control.

    Anyway all in all a fantastic turntable with fantastic speed accuracy. I like to listen to classic and do not hear any speed warble or pitch problems. It is accurate enough to detect a record that is off-center rather than the turntable making pitch speed problems.

    The motor is very strong and you can tell this immediately when you use your old vintage Discwasher on it, the turntable does not like to slow down easily when pressure is applied to it.

    Overall also the turntable feels like a quality very well made product that just feels like it will still be running in 10 years.

    I've spent just over 2 years with this TT and love many things about it. It is essentially the modern Technics 1200 mk2 with its layout and sturdy construction. It has an extremely powerful and reliable motor with impressive torque. In many ways, it has the potential to out perform the 1200 however like it's little brother, the AT LP120 USB, it is plagued with platters that simply don't spin evenly. I actually went through 3 different units and an additional replacement platter (4 platters in all), and each had varying degrees of significant, wobbly platter syndrome. They would rise and fall, causing the stylus and tone arm to do the same. As their flagship model, it's absolutely baffling that this is an issue for a high end turntable. I contacted customer service and after several emails back and fourth, one of their head engineers told me that this type of rise and fall is "acceptable within their quality control standards". Because of this, I was unable to use the warranty to get a refund as this was deemed 'normal' to the companies standards. If you know anything about high end turntables, this is quite obviously not the case as all good decks use platters that spin absolutely flat, balanced, and evenly.

    It's a shame because this turntable has so much potential and so much going for it that it could very well have set the standard for the new turntables to come. However, because of this pervasive problem, I would advise anyone who is considering purchasing this TT against it as it is an unacceptable flaw that has the potential to adversely affect your stylus and more so, your precious vinyl collection. As well, don't take my word for it and do your own research into this issue as I'm most certainly not the only one to encounter this problem. I would hope that this issue has been addressed and alleviated in their newest 1240, but again, do some investigating as I'd hate for you to have to endure the frustration and disappointment that I went through.

          *Update from my last review

          I've had this amazing machine for just over a month now and have noticed quite a few fine scratches on the dust cover and on the top part of the turntable. It's made of shiny black metal and though I've only been using very soft microfibre cloths to dust it, it seems to be showing a number of fine scratches/abrasions (which is a shame as it's such a beautiful TT). I'm wondering if there is a solution for this and am hoping I can remove or at least minimize the eye sores?

              I've been using turntables for well over 20 years and more so, I've used the Technics 1200 mk2's. Ultimately, when I decided it was time to buy a new deck, I began looking for the best 1200 substitute as I wasn't willing to shell out the $2000+ that most were looking for, for a new one. Article upon article kept pointing me towards the Audio Technica AT-LP1240 USB (and the AT-LP120). Because I wanted something with a bit more punch and with torque similar to the power of the 1200, I decided that the 1240 was definitely worth the extra money. That being said, the entire time prior to receiving my new 1240, I wasn't expecting too much as I had already experimented with a handful of modern 1200 'substitutes', and they all fell quite short (except for the Pioneer PLX 1000, which is a great deck but still not what I was looking for). And then I received my new TT and proceeded to open the box..

              Not only was it shipped and boxed to withstand a massive earthquake, the parts were all very accessible and easy to put together. About 20min tops from opening it to playing my first record. The first thing I noticed was its construction and heft. This weighs more than the 1200 and upon inspection, it's due to the high caliber parts and materials used to built this tank of a TT. The torque is also wrist breakingly strong, again, more so than the 1200, as it starts and stops on a dime and when manipulating the platter while playing records, you can feel it's heavy pull. What struck me the most however was the actual sound that came out of the amazing machine. With punchy bass, crisp highs and clear mids, the 1240 will most definitely satisfy the bulk of today's audiophiles. As a DJ primarily and an audiophile as a close second, this is definitely one of the 1240's biggest strengths. Not only will it satisfy the vast majority of those looking for a full fledged DJ turntable, the ace up its sleeve is that it its sound qualifies it as an audiophile deck as well. So yes, I'm thrilled.

                  My first "high-end" turntable was a Pioneer PL518, almost 40 years ago. It is built like a tank and is still running beautifully. When my teenage daughter discovered vinyl, I gave her the Pioneer and had to find a new version of a direct-drive turntable that I liked as much. Of course, the new issue of Technics' SL1200 would do the trick, but I did not have $4k to drop on a turntable. When I auditioned the AT LP-1240 I was stunned at how close to the 1200 it sounded, and how well-built it was. I bought one and mated it with an AT440 cartridge. I have been thoroughly enjoying it for a year now and it continues to reveal things in old LPs that I had not heard before. I can see why DJs love it, given its rugged build, but home-bound vinyl lovers will love it just as much. I run it through a McIntosh amp and Harbeth C7 speakers, and it sits on a Pro-Ject wall-mount shelf. It just sounds great, and I can listen for hours. Also bought an Ortofon mono 78 cartridge and separate head shell so I can play my grandparents' old 78 classical records, and it handles them very well. Highly recommended, and could easily have been priced higher and still been a good value.

                    One of the best built turntables on the market today! I installed a Shure M97xE cartridge on this beauty and can't believe how nice it sounds! Don't get me wrong, Audio-Technica makes some of the best cartridges out there, I just decided to put a Shure on. All the features of this turntable are geared toward the DJ market but will perform just as well in the audiophile market. Very easy to set up and use but be prepared to manually move the tone arm onto and off the record as this table is fully manual, the auto tables are more of a toy in my opinion. The 1240 employs a very high torque drive motor as it starts and stops on a dime! To sum up, the AT-LP1240USB is extremely well made, awesome looking, and will probably be the last turntable you'll ever buy. Well done Audio-Technica!

                            I have always used TT 1200 The LP1240 is a modern version of the T1200. I have no issues it is built strong and sounds excellent. It has more torque than the 1200's and I love all the new modern features. Make sure you balance the table by adjusting the feet's before setting up and use a level.

                                I'm a turntablist that uses vinyl as well as software. I scratch on these a lot and they have performed flawlessly for coming up on 2 years. They've been road tested since I play venues and events. Strong torque motor allows you to scratch on these turntables. Another great feature is the included dust cover. If you want a nice pair of DJ quality turntables then get these!!

                                    This is an OEM clone of the Technics 1200 series. But at 1/4 of the price. Well balanced tone arm, strobe platter, stylus light, heavy duty motor. I chose the AT120EB cartridge with it, and the combo is amazing. Don't hesitate.

                                        Back in the day i had technics MK2's. The standard of its time. I'm back in the market for a pair of turntables like many of us. Your not a DJ unless you spin vinyl. Sorry but nothing like the real thing. I just recieved my audio-technica lp1240 and it is solid with serious drive.

                                          There's no way to search Q&A so this has probably been asked before.. For those of us who don't have optical drives (i.e. anyone with a Mac post 2012) - is there a way to download the Audacity software? Surprised there isn't a URL link and key or something with the AT-LP1240 instead of the CD.

                                          Does the pitch control only work at specified percentage (10%, 20%), or can it be changed continuously on a sliding scale?
                                          Also, if using a 78 stylus, how much force can it produce (in grams), and how adjustable is this?

It seems like there are five different answers to this question around the website and I don't want to get the turntable in the mail and then have a week of crying as I wait for a needle that I didn't realize I also needed to buy to come in the mail.

                                          is there a hard case to transport this for DJ use? I have been looking online and can not find a hard flight case that would house this turntable. Maybe there is a case that doesn't explicitly say it is compatible with the turntable but is still great to use. please let me know because I am eager to buy this product but cannot do so if there is no hard case for it.

                                            Thank you for your inquiry. We do not have a turntable that will play these.

                                          Hi. I would just like to ask why my turn table wouldn't turn after pressing start button. It would only let the lights turn on, but would not turn after pressing start. Pls help and advise. Thank you.

                                          Will this play 78s or do you need a different cartridge?

                                            No, the AT-LP1240-USB does not come with a cartridge and stylus.
