Audio-Technica-USB Direct-Drive Professional Turntable in Silver
Audio-Technica-USB Direct-Drive Professional Turntable in Silver. The professional stereo turntable features a high-torque direct-drive motor for quick start-ups and a USB output that connects directly to your computer.
Other features include: forward and reverse play capability; cast aluminum platter with slip mat and a start/stop button; three speeds 33/45/78; selectable high-accuracy quartz-controlled pitch lock and pitch change slider control with +/-10% or +/-20% adjustment ranges; and removable hinged dust cover.
A selectable internal stereo phono pre-amplifier allows the turntable to plug directly to components with no dedicated turntable input. A USB cable and adapter cables are included along with Mac- and PC-compatible Audacity software to digitize your LPs.
Similar to the Technics series, the platter also features 33rpm and 45rpm strobe dots to help you gauge the turntable’s speed accuracy.
The Audio-Technica-USB Direct-Drive Professional Turntable in Silver incorporates an S-shaped pivoting arm with an adjustable counterweight. This cylindrical weight is to dial in the proper amount of downward force on the record grooves: if the vertical tracking force (VTF) is set too lightly, the needle won’t properly sit in the groove and your music will skip and distort; too much weight and you could cause permanent damage to the record.
