Audio Technica AT-LP120X-BT Turntable is a fully manual model based on the best-selling AT-LP120XUSB. However, the AT-LP120X-BT has the added convenience of Bluetooth 5.0 wireless connectivity alongside the existing analogue and USB outputs.

The USB side of things allows for digital file conversion to preserve audio integrity. The process is easy and only requires you to download the free Mac and Windows OS-compatible software Audacity or any software of your choice. Analogue to digital conversion has never been simpler!


Features Bluetooth & USB

The added new feature of Bluetooth connectivity in this latest model allows for amazing convenience when connecting to various BT compatible devices around your home such as headphones, wireless speakers, multiroom systems including devices that support high-quality Qualcomm aptX audio codec. The turntable also features hardwire connectivity options in the form of dual RCA output sockets.

“At first glance, the AT-LP120XBT-USB looks the part – it owes more than a little to the legendary Technics SL1200/SL1210 where aesthetics are concerned. But as well as all the DJ bits and bobs (like pitch control and super-responsive direct-drive motor), this Audio-Technica turntable has an integrated, switchable phono stage, a USB output and wireless aptX Bluetooth connectivity. All of which makes it a fair bit more adaptable than your average record player.” – Tech Radar September 2020 (Audio Technica AT-LP120X-BT Turntable )


Key Features


The turntable has many features to place it in a professional environment as well such as a die-cast aluminium platter with felt mat; start/stop button. A selectable high-accuracy quartz-controlled pitch lock and pitch change slider control with +/-10% adjustment range; a stroboscopic platter with speed indicator; a removable plug-type stylus target light; external power supply; and a removable hinged dust cover. The unit also features an AC adapter that handles the AC/DC conversion outside of the chassis, reducing noise in the signal chain.
