Introducing the Audio-Technica LP120-USB Direct-Drive Turntable. Yes, this is a professional DJ turntable. And, sure, some would suggested that the guys here at Vinyl Revival are neither professionals nor DJ’s (certainly not the latter). But Audio Tech’s LP120 direct-drive professional DJ turntable has a number of handy features that make it a worthy consideration for domestic use.
Sure, it comes with high accuracy quartz-controlled pitch lock and pitch change slider, things you’d never use unless you were DJ’ing. But they sit innocuously to the front right of the table and can be easily ignored. And while it’s a DJ turntable at heart, some of these design features make it perfect for certain home setups. The LP120 is a weighty unit. It’s designed to be played in bars and clubs where vibrations abound. It also comes with an inbuilt phono preamp, eliminating the need for an external phono pre. Why are these features good for you? Well, if you’re limited for space, looking to create a mini system with your turntable and bookshelves in close proximity to one another (sitting on the same shelf perhaps?), the LP120 is perfect for suppressing the vibrations those bookshelves will generate. In all actuality, you could hook this record player to a pair of active bookshelves and have nothing but a turntable and two speakers sitting side-by-side on the one shelf or cabinet without vibration affecting your playback. Perfect for small apartments and high density living situations.
The AT-LP120 is a direct drive unit, which means high-torque and highly reliable timing. Plus, there's no need to replace belts! It offers selectable 33, 45 and 78 RPM operations at the touch of a button. And its USB function means you can record your favourite LPs and limited pressings into MP3, WAV and other digital audio formats. It also comes with a host of RCA adaptors enabling you to connect to a host of home entertainment components and systems. It’s a heavy duty direct drive turntable designed to be picked up and carted around town to various gigs and venues, meaning its well constructed and in home domestic use is virtually bullet proof.
Powered speakers are all the rage these days. With the influx of high density housing our living space has significantly reduced. But just cause you’re sacrificing space doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice your sound quality, too. The biggest problem getting big sound from active speakers is efficiency. A small bookshelf housing isn’t a whole lot of room for a big juicy amplifier. Even some of the smallest bookshelf speakers from certain manufactures need a whole lot of power to give them adequate detail. But not Klipsch. This is where Kilipsch come into their own. Efficiency has been Klipsch’s M.O for the last 70 years, and what this means is they don’t need a big, powerful amplifier to get a whole lot zip out of their bookshelf speakers. So while the amplifier in the R-15s is small, the speakers themselves honk. Easily one of the best – if not the best on the market.
Now, when you add an inbuilt phono stage, optical inputs for your television, bluetooth, and an optional sub out (for all those bass heads out there), you get a whole lot of hifi for very little equipment. And it’s why these bad boys are quickly becoming one of our most popular home hifi solutions. They do it all. And to top it off they pack a whole heap of punch in the audio department. Yes, Klipsch have been pissing off the neighbours since 1946 and there’s no signs of them slowing down. They’re not going to let a little thing (pardon the pun) like high density housing stand between them and banging out some hefty tunes. So if you’re strapped for space, or you simply like the streamlined look of two black speakers and a jet black table, this is the package for you.
