A versatile budget turntable
The Audio-Technica LP-120XBT-USB turntable offers a great deal of versatility at a wallet-friendly price. It has built-in Bluetooth that allows you to play records wirelessly through compatible speakers, receivers, and similar components. And you can connect its USB output to your Mac® or PC to digitize your albums, so they can travel with you in your smartphone. (Free 3rd-party Audacity software recommended.)
The 'table features a high-torque direct-drive motor that gets any record — 33-1/3, 45, or 78 rpm — up to speed in a hurry. Adjustable pitch control lets you change the platter speed ±10%, and a pop-up light on the stylus helps you find your groove in a darkened room. The included detachable dust cover helps keep your 'table clean when you're not using it.
