    Audio-Technica Black Direct-Drive Professional DJ Turntable - AT-LP1240-USB XP

    This superbly made, professional quality DJ turntable is designed primarily for use in clubs, touring and mobile DJ applications. It can also be used by music lovers to play their record collections at home. Its sleek, elegant matte-black and silver design fits into any stereo music or home entertainment system, and its built-in switchable phono pre-amp enables it to be used with a wide variety of receivers, powered speakers and other A/V components. As an added benefit, the turntable offers a USB output that allows direct connection to a computer for easy LP-to-digital conversion.

    Built to deliver exceptional music reproduction even under the most demanding conditions of professional use, the AT-LP1240-USB XP utilizes a powerful direct-drive 16-pole, three-phase motor for quick startup, unwavering speed stability along with easy back-cueing, forward and reverse play and quiet operation at 33-1/3, 45 or 78 RPM. The turntable features an S-shaped tone arm with adjustable tracking force (counterweight) and anti-skate adjustment. It comes with the AT-HS1 universal 1/2"-mount headshell and the AT-XP5 DJ phono cartridge.

  • This is the fourth major appliance I have purchased through Abt. I have always been happy with our experience. This purchase was a dishwasher that I had looked for all over town and couldn't get it until mid to end of July. I ordered it and had it within a week through Abt! Thank you so much!
