OUR PART #  ATLP1240-USB-XP


The AT-LP1240-USB XP is a direct-drive professional DJ turntable outfitted with the new AT-XP5 DJ cartridge. The turntable offers a host of high-performance features that make it ideal for pro, mobile and club DJ use.

The Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB is a superbly made, professional quality DJ turntable that is designed primarily for DJ use in nightclubs, touring and mobile applications. It can also be used by music lovers to play their record collections at home. Its sleek, elegant gloss-black and silver design fits into any stereo music or home entertainment system, and its built-in switchable phono preamp enables it to be used with a wide variety of receivers, powered speakers and other A/V components. As an added benefit, the turntable offers a USB output that allows direct connection to a computer for easy LP-to-digital conversion.

Built to deliver exceptional music reproduction even under the most demanding conditions of professional use, the AT-LP1240-USB utilizes a powerful direct-drive 16-pole, three-phase motor for unwavering speed stability along with easy back-cueing, forward and reverse play and quiet operation at 33-1/3, 45 or 78 RPM. The turntable features an S-shaped tone arm with adjustable tracking force (counterweight) and anti-skate adjustment and a removable universal cartridge mount (cartridge available separately).

Additional DJ-friendly features including a damped cast-aluminum platter with stroboscopic speed markings and slip mat, an illuminated speed indicator and adjustable pitch control, a start/stop button, a removable stylus target light, a dedicated tone arm grounding lug, a hydraulically-damped lift lever and a locking tone arm rest that keeps the arm and cartridge in place during transport.

The turntable includes PC- and Mac-compatible Audacity® software that converts the audio on a record to MP3, WAV or other format digital audio files.

The Audio-Technica XP5 features a unique combination of high-fidelity performance and precise tracking and is specially designed to meet the needs of DJs. It has ideal tracking force range of 2 to 4 grams and offers a powerful output level of 5.5 mV. Its 0.3 x 0.7 mil elliptical bonded stylus tracks the record groove with high accuracy for outstanding audio reproduction, and its highly rigid, lightweight polyphenylene sulfide (PPS)/glass fiber body minimizes unwanted vibrations. Plus, the cartridge design provides maximum visibiity of the stylus tip.
