"Audio Technica for the win!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have owned many Audio Technica products over the years. I currently own 3 pairs of studio headphones, a condenser microphone, and now the LP120. I have yet to have a bad experience with this brand. I have been in the market for an affordable direct drive turntable for some time now. After reading many reviews and hearing about zzounds easy payment plan, I decided that now was the time to purchase. When the turntable arrived, I felt the excitement of a little boy waking up on christmas morning. I was able to set up and have the turntable ready for use in my daw within 30 minutes of it being dropped off at my door. It is heavy, well made, and extremely easy to use. The motor is fairly strong as well if you plan on using it for scratching. The only problem with this turntable is the platter. It is slightly warped as I have read in reviews before. This does NOT affect its playability whatsoever. If you are in the market for a DD turntable on a budget, I cannot see how you could go wrong with the LP120
