An Affordable Turntable For The Pro Turntablist
For decades, turntablism has been inaccessible to most artists due to the prohibitively high cost of acquiring two professional-grade DJ turntables and a mixer. But times are changing and the start-up cost for old-school DJ gear is now more affordable than ever. The AT-LP1240-USB offers everything a DJ would expect in a pro-grade turntable, like a cast-aluminum platter with stroboscopic speed markings and illuminated playback speed and pitch adjustment controls. There's a removable stylus target light to make seeking tracks easy even in dim environments. And the unit features an S-shaped tone-arm assembly (for better tracking while scratching) with adjustable counterweight and anti-skate controls. It's even got a locking tone-arm rest for keeping your favorite cartridge safe from harm while the unit is being transported.
USB Output for Capturing LPs to Your Computer
Any record you play on the AT-LP1240-USB can also be recorded via USB, to the included Audacity recording software. You can archive your LPs to WAV files at 44.1 or 44.8 kHz and 16-bit resolution, and convert WAVs to MP3s, so you can carry your vinyl collection wherever you go on your favorite MP3 player.
