The Audio-Technica LP120-USB turntable is made for sharing your favorite vinyl. You can digitize top tracks with a built-in USB output and included Mac- and PC-compatible Audacity software, so they can travel with you in your smartphone.

If you like to DJ, 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% or ±20% for easier beat-match mixing, and a pop-up light on the stylus helps you find your groove in a darkened club. The included detachable dust cover helps keep your 'table clean when you're not using it.

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
Been searching for a entry-level+ TT for a short while. Did some online searches for "used" of this model and found that, for just a few $$$ more than asking price, I could get one new. Have done business with Crutchfield in the past and trust their offerings and competitive pricing. [ Bill  Apr 19, 2019 ]
A
Advice from the product experts and it has a bunch of features. [ James  Mar 01, 2019 ]

The built in preamp Audio-Technica's rep and all the positive reviews [ Randall  Feb 23, 2019 ]

A
To replace a 30 yr old Technics turntable [ Tracey  Feb 15, 2019 ]
A
Positive reviews, affordable hifi. [ Susan  Jan 26, 2019 ]
A
I'm replacing a Technics SL 230 Automatic Belt Drive Turntable I bought in 1979. I once had a Technics SL1300 Direct Drive Automatic Turntable, but gave it to a family member, I think, and I haven't seen it since. This Audio Technica L 120 is almost a clone aside from being manual. [ Roger  Feb 27, 2019 ]
A
it has what I want/need for a good price [ David  Feb 18, 2019 ]

A
Audio technica lp120 usb it self is not bluetooth capable
[ RENE  Mar 24, 2019 ]
A
This turntable does NOT have Bluetooth. There is a USB port, maybe you can add a Bluetooth connection to it that way.
[ Sevan  Mar 23, 2019 ]
A
No, this turntable does not have Bluetooth connectivity. It needs some sort of playback device, whether it is a receiver or speakers, which could be Bluetooth.
