Executive Overview

We have a bit of a hard time with turntables. It isn't that we don't understand them or that we don't like them, it is just that they seem to have stopped being a piece of AV gear and transformed into listening room bling. We're sure people use those 200lbs, $200,000 turntables constructed out of acrylic, carbon fiber, and dolphin bones but, it seems to us, that these are more "works of art that may or may not be used for their intended purpose" than actual pieces of gear. So, when a company brings out a new turntable, it usually comes in one of two flavors: the uber-expensive showpiece designed more to pull people into their booth at trade shows than to be sold or budget models for people that actually just want something to use to playback their aging vinyl collection.

AT_LP1240_USBThe Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB Professional DJ Turntable is more the latter.

One of the problems with the larger, statement turntables (aside from the ridiculous asking prices which soar toward $1,000,000) is that they look like they aren't meant for long term use. The belts are often thin (especially compared to the rest of the components) and they are usually fully manual which turns starting an LP into some sort of AV tea ceremony. 

As the name implies, the AT-LP1240-USB Professional DJ Turntable is built for long term use and abuse. It employs a direct drive, high-torque multi-pole motor with selectable 33/45/78  RPM speeds. It has dual start/stop controls and you can adjust these controls manually. The sliding pitch control includes a quartz speed lock. The stroboscopic platter includes a speed accuracy indicator. You can even operate the AT-LP1240-USB in reverse. The damped cast aluminum record platter is topped with a low-resistance DJ-style slip mat.

The tone arm is S-shaped with an adjustable counterweight and a removable target light. There is an anti-skate adjustment, height adjustment and lock, and a dedicated ground lug for tone arm grounding. The AT-LP1240-USB includes a hydraulically-damped lift lever and locking tone arm rest for keeping the arm in place during transport.

Obviously, many of these features are things that will be of interest to DJs and users on the go. For the home user, the AT-LP1240-USB includes an integrated phono preamplifier so you won't have to buy a new receiver. Luckily, this preamp is selectable so you don't have to use it if you have something better on hand. As the name implies, the AT-LP1240-USB has a USB output for a direct connection to your computer. This is handy if you are looking to transform your vinyl into a digital format. The output can be 16 bit 44.1 kHz or 48 kHz and the USB is 1.1 compliant and compatible with Windows XP or above or MAC OS X or above. 

There are a few "features" included with the AT-LP1240-USB that neophytes might expect would be included on the more expensive turntables but often aren't. The AT-LP1240-USB includes a 45-RPM adapter, adjustable feet for leveling, and a removable dust cover. Many times, the more expensive turntables will not include one or all three of these. While the aesthetics of the AT-LP1240-USB aren't flashy, the gloss black and sliver stylings certainly should fit in well with most home theater gear. At $530 MSRP, the AT-LP1240-USB isn't exactly an impulse buy but it looks to be a very solid offering that should last for years. 

Conclusion

It would be easy to discount the Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB Professional DJ Turntable as "not for you". It's more expensive than other budget offerings but it is built for more abuse than you are ever likely to dish out. This translates into a player that very well may outlive your vinyl collection. With its myriad of features and extras, we wouldn't be surprised if this turned into a very good seller for Audio-Technica.

S, J, Straight, Linear arms… NONE OF IT MATTERS IN THE BIG PICTURE!

The tonearm that is well made will be one that performs well for the user. Each style of tonearm has its strengths and compromises but all generally fall into a medium mass ideal as virtually all consumer cartridges lie in the accepted medium mass range.

The most important thing for the user after buying a quality turntable will be to make sure the cartridge is properly mounted and set up for that table. Once done, enjoy the unit. Get and take good care of your LP's. Keep the stylus clean and go out and buy more vinyl.

Of course turntables have ranged and still today range from crappy junk to outstanding machines. Some brands are overrated and sold only on a name and a lot of brands have been and are underrated. Vintage tables can be fine quality machines if in good shape. New models can range from poor values, to good ones, to overrated, to being slap your head fantastic machines.

Finding good used vinyl is the toughest mission for a vinyl spinner. Most consumers as typical in life did not appreciate enough to take better care of their albums and often ran them on improperly set up tables or with poor, worn out cartridges. They often never really properly cleaned them nor stored them well when not in use.

Getting and caring for good used vinyl requires enough attention to appreciate it. Lots of good advice on the internet as to how and what ways to better take care of your LP's as well as your turntables.

Don't let some vinyl snobs out on the web etc. who often have overrated hearing ability and overrated ability to spot quality gear/stuff lead you down a garden path. Yes, stay away from cheap junk and worn out, beat up tables and cartridges. Once you do that set a realistic budget, read up, then shop for new and/or good vintage gear. You can and should find good to great stuff for most budgets.

That turntable is not a turntable for the domestic audio system. It is for Low-Fi DJ use.
These newer DJ TT's are useful for archival of historical recordings, as they often are able to play discs anywhere from 16 to 90rpms, which pretty much covers just about anything ever made except for vertically cut Pathe discs and 16inch radio transcriptions. Indeed, there is a TT from Rek-O-Kut which is essentially a modified Technics made for this very purpose Turntable Picture REK-O-KUT CVS-14

I saw one of these on display at a hi-fi shop a few years back. It was beautiful! Looked a lot nicer then that photo. I'd like to get one of these before they are gone. It's probably the only way one can still get a new Technics 1200 at a decent price (the one I saw was $675) except without the name and with much more interesting features! With Panasonic out of the 1200 business, Rek-O-Kut won't have a base for these which to work off of any longer. Whatever TT's are still out there unsold is probably all she wrote.

Good turntables are always manual. You don't want the arm pulling any mechanism.
DJ tables are always manual, the mechanisms for automatic playback would make it impossible for them to do what they do, unless you are referring to something else.

Good arms need to be strong with low resonance and have good damping. They are not S-shaped which adds mass where you don't need it.
That is a weakness with these TT's, but the arms on the better models don't sound half bad with a properly set up hi-fi cartridge. In the case of the Technics, there are mods to install high-end tone arms. Still, the ability to swap out the head shell for different ones set up with 78rpm/mono/stereo cartridges is a big plus to me. Also, some models (like my Numark) include a straight arm which is supposed to be better for DJ scratching and can be swapped out for the S-shaped one. In the case of DJ tables, the S-shaped arm is superior for playback according to the owners manual. But these are a special case.

Belt drive is fine, I have replaced the belt on my Thorens TD 150 once in 46 years!

With these direct drive tables, your also guaranteed to get spot on accuracy of speed/pitch, something not always trustworthy with some belt drives.

I'm not arguing that these types sound better in general then expensive dedicated audiophile TT's, but the better models from Technics, Stanton, Audio-Technica can be quite interesting and a lot of fun, but ONLY on a few higher end models. The cheap ones are appallingly bad.

Classical recordings for the most part are not issued on vinyl LP.
There were and still are a surprising number of new classical titles released on LP, more then you may realize. But with all these new and wonderful CD budget boxes coming out, it doesn't make sense to spend the money on these when one can buy the same CD title plus many other great works in one box.

This buying and collecting of new audiophile LP's is really a pursuit for the wealthy hobbyist.
