About the Audio-Technica LPW40WN
A versatile, good-looking turntable
A versatile, good-looking turntable
Audio-Technica is rightfully respected for their excellent direct-drive turntables, but we also love their belt-driven 'tables, like the fully manual LPW40WN. It features good build quality in a budget 'table — there's a vibration-resistant die-cast aluminum platter with rubber mat, and the straight carbon-fiber tonearm has a nice AT-VM95E moving magnet cartridge pre-mounted.
There's also a built-in phono preamp and RCA cable for easy integration with most home audio systems, so you can start enjoying your records right away. The elegant simulated walnut veneer is the eye-catching "icing on the cake."

Its motor features a sensor-monitored system to main accurate platter rotation at speeds of 33-1/3 and 45RPM (45RPM adapter is included).
Anti-Resonance Construction: The AT-LPW40WN features an aesthetically pleasing anti-resonance MDF (medium density fiberboard) plinth with simulated walnut wood veneer to limit low-frequency acoustical feedback.

Audio-Technica has been a leader in phono cartridge design for more than 50 years, and that expertise shows in the versatile, high-performance AT-VM95E cartridge, which comes with a 0.3 x 0.7 mil elliptical stylus, but is also compatible with any Audio-Technica VM95 Series replacement stylus (sold separately), offering a wide choice of options for a variety of applications.
Note: The headshell/catridge/stylus assembly does not come pre-installed on the tone-arm and must be user installed.
