5 out of 5 stars   Love this turntable
By DJ Sampson (Saint Louis) May 16, 2014
Review submitted for Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB Professional DJ Turntable (ATLP1240USB)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: I was a little nervous going from the Technics 1200, but was pleasantly surprised. The adjustable start and brake were set to what I was used to. The power of this motor is Amazing. I haven't tried the USB or line settings, don't know if I will. But for a "vinyl DJ/ analog purist" I know what I will get next when the remaining 1200 dies. Great shipping from BUYDIG too. Thank You.
Cons: None.
Other Comments: Good tone arm feel. The piano black body is nice, wasnt sure if I could handle the transition, but happy I did. The pitch control options are a great thing I never thought I would use,

5 out of 5 stars   Wonderful and heavy duty turntable. Usefull for ALL applications!
By Benjamin Higginbotham (Texas) May 15, 2014
Review submitted for Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB Professional DJ Turntable (ATLP1240USB)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: -The turntable is well constructed and weighs around 42 pounds. Everything about the build construction is absolute quality and a step above the LP-120-USB model that sells for about $250. -The tone arm does a fantastic job of tracking the music, especially towards the end of each side of the record. -You can adjust the counter weight and anti-skate options by a large margin which is useful for using this turntable with any type of cartridge you would like. The looks are absolute CLASS! This is a very sexy turntable and looks wonderful in any room of the home, office, or club.
Cons: -The lack of an included cartridge is just plain cheesy and cheap. Especially considering the next model down "LP-120-USB" includes a nice Audio Technica 'AT-95E' cartridge. -The many on board options can be a little overwhelming for beginners who are trying vinyl for the first time or are returning to it after decades. This machine is quite a step up from the majority of the junky turntables that came with department store "Hi-Fi" systems of the 70's and early 80's. But every function is labeled and once a cartridge is installed, it's a very reliable and trouble-free turntable.
Other Comments: I researched turntables under $500 for six months and finally decided on this one. The model under this (LP-120-USB) does include a cartridge and does many of the same functions, but this model is a step up and absolutely worth the extra $100-$120 for the better build quality and extra lights that help you locate tracks in darker lighting. I know that many people are buying the "Pro-Ject Debut Carbon" which is $400 and comes in many different colors, but I feel that those are a waist of money and too many people are lured in by the color options and not the performance. The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon is a pretentious and fussy turntable that can't even offer the consistent speed of Audio Technica since the Pro-Ject is belt-driven and pitch changes can occur at the worst of times. The Audio Technica LP-1240 has none of the baggage of the self-proclaimed "audiophile" turntables, it's easy to set up, is much more high-tech, and can be used with nearly any cartridge you would like to install. A note on cartridges, since this turn table does not include a cartridge, I also purchased the "SHURE White Label" DJ cartridge, which can be had for $85. It simply screws on to the end of the tone arm and is instantly able play records after you set the counterweight and anti skate to 2 to 2.5 grams. It offers wonderful sound reproduction and very balanced EQ settings for accurate reproduction of any type of music. I use the machine for both recreational listening and for transferring many of the LP's that never made the jump onto the CD format in the early 80's. Overall, this is the best turntable you can buy for under $500. Please don't let the "DJ" aesthetic scare you off, this is not a toy, but a very nicely built turntable that offers the best performance for the least amount of money.

4 out of 5 stars   A good turntable to consider.
By Sus (Bedford, NH) August 12, 2013
Review submitted for Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB Professional DJ Turntable (ATLP1240USB)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy Controls, Durable, Great Sound
Cons:
Other Comments: Well made turntable, although a bit heavy at 26 pounds. I am not a DJ but I understand why a DJ would want a turntable that didn't shake when he/she worked it. One wish is that it came with my choice of cartridge pre-installed.

5 out of 5 stars   Great for Pro DJs!!!
By Big Bob (Atlanta, GA) July 07, 2013
Review submitted for Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB Professional DJ Turntable (ATLP1240USB)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Durable, Great Sound, Easy Controls, Easy To Set Up
Cons:
Other Comments: The motor is much stronger than the motor on the Technics 1200 which comes in place if you are heavy handed. The start/stop time is much quicker than the Technics 1200. The only thing I would change about the design is the pitch markings. I would have added numbers to easily match the tempo while mixing in low light conditions. I got around this by aiming the turntable strobe light half way between the pitch slider and the platter so you can see both of them. Sometimes I will accidentally hit the extra start/stop button while queing--which is probably me just being clumsy. I like the fact that it doesn't come with a needle and a cartridge because in most situations you will want to buy the one that fits your personal needs. The fitting is standard so I used the ones from my Technics 1200s.

5 out of 5 stars   Want High Quality Performance & Sounds
By M1 (Wilmington, Ohio) April 23, 2013
Review submitted for Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB Professional DJ Turntable (ATLP1240USB)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Durable, Great Sound, Easy Controls
Cons:
Other Comments: The Audio-Technica name is quality by itself. The OEM packaging is an indicator of how much care is placed around the turntable. The provided documentation is clear and complete. I had a few questions that the operator's manual covered. I use this unit practically everyday, either listening to clean vinyl or old school scratch and pops. The audio fidelity is simply supurb, and the controls are exactly where they need to be. Stylus calibration was easy and fast. The only issue I experienced was due to a bad ground point that created an annoying 60Hz hum. Once I established a good electrical reference (ground), the hum was no longer in my ear. Most people will appreciate the sturdy housing and flexible vibration absorbing feet along with the removable dust cover. Finally, I purchased the recommended stylus/cartridge - AT311EP, and it works great! I can hear the entire audio human spectrum.

5 out of 5 stars   Definite alternative to Technics!
By djcapricejohnson (Kansas City, MO) January 14, 2013
Review submitted for Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB Professional DJ Turntable (ATLP1240USB)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Durable, Great Sound, Easy To Set Up, Easy Controls
Cons:
Other Comments: The Audio-Technica ATLP1240 is a great turntable for both beginners and professionals alike. Its construction, looks, and performance could make this turntable the last you will ever buy. It is a SUPERB alternative to the Technics 1200/1210 series, with a motor that is 3X more powerful (4.5 g tracking force compared to Technics 1.7 g cm force). The tonearm height is adjustable with a very smooth adjusting collar. Tonearm is nice, metal with nice finish. There are other aspects which make it a better choice even compared to RELOOP RP 6000 MK6, American Audio HTD 4.5, and Stanton's ST-150 (all sister turntables). Price from BuyDig is most competitive. I definitely recommend this table, especially if you've gotten over Technics extreme cost for a unit whose price is market driven. This table is all about great performance, with everything better than Technics (despite lack of minimalist style), for a fraction of the cost of a $1100+ 1200 M5G.

4 out of 5 stars   Great Investment
By Gauds (NYC) September 03, 2012
Review submitted for Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB Professional DJ Turntable (ATLP1240USB)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Professional Tool
Cons: Shipping
Other Comments: Pros: This is the best turntable you can get for the price. It performs just as well as any other turntable in the market and is well built. The product is very well worth it if you are a DJ or want to have these for the road/club. Cons: Doesn't come with a stylus, so you will spend a bit extra in buying a cartridge + Stylus if you don't already have one. Also the shipping was very slow. I received my second ATLP 1240 about 4 weeks after I made my purchase online.

5 out of 5 stars   This is a 5 star product
By charles collier (centreville, Virginia) May 11, 2012
Review submitted for Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB Professional DJ Turntable (ATLP1240USB)
Pros: Easy Controls, Durable, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound
Cons:
Other Comments: This turn table I would give it 5 stars it is even better then that. I own turn tables in the past but by far this is the best I have ever got. The company was great to deal with and delivery was very fast and they back what they sell. They have great prices better then any where else. The company who makes the turn table are also great they help me with getting the latest software and answer any question I had and right away. If your looking to copy your albums or just playing them this by far the best. I am retire police for 35 years I did nothing but technical stuff for the police that everything and I can say this turn table is build to last and you can not go wrong on this by buying it and get it from this company they are by far the best price and great to deal with and fast delivery as well.
