          Comments about Audio-Technica Fully Automatic Stereo Turntable System:

          I bought this about two years ago brand new from my local record store that also sells new record players. I'd done my research and I knew I wanted this turntable. I was starting to really get into vinyl and wanted to upgrade to a legit record player as opposed to my previous "novelty" one. I am so so happy with this turntable. It's extremely easy to use. I feel like it's fairly sturdy (I have several cats that I catch resting on it—dust cover closed—from time to time and it's never messed up!) I sometimes wish I would have gotten the model that is identical but includes a USB drive for those old records or records that don't come with a download code, because I do still collect music digitally as well, but I love this turntable. Great sound. Never had a problem with distortion or wonkiness. 10/10 recommend!

                        Comments about Audio-Technica Fully Automatic Stereo Turntable System:

                        I'm an old audiophile who got in the hobby in the late 60's. I could never afford the high end equipment, so I looked for the best bang for the buck. The Audio Technica AT120 is my 4th turntable ever. When I began looking for a new TT in the summer of 2010, I was disappointed at the selection of decent audiophile models available. In the under $300 range, it was slim pickins! Not surprising, with the advent of CD's in the mid 80's. Another rarity is the hi-fi specialty shop, and I live in a big city. I was forced to go online to do my shopping.

                        Based on reviews, I chose the AT120, and chose wisely. I really wanted a semi-auto unit that automatically returns the tonearm at the end of the record, but the automatics available were on the lower end of the scale and didn't meet my requirements for audio quality. I was very pleasantly surprised when I unpacked the AT120. It looked to be of the same quality I had come to expect from the turntables of 60's and 70's. Setup was easy- I've had experience at this in the past. I was impressed by all the features, and that they operated with a quality feel. I insisted on: adjustable tonearm tracking, anti-skating, 3 speeds, damped cuing, and a dust cover, among other features, and it has them all. It even includes a built-in preamp, USB connection, and reverse turntable direction, none of which I need.
                        I've been enjoying this unit for six years now, and only one thing has needed servicing: the tonearm damping fluid had dried out, letting the tonearm free-fall to the record. You can buy the silicon damping fluid on line and find video instructions on how to fix this on youtube. It now operates perfectly and I expect it to continue giving excellent service for many more years. The only change I made to the original setup was to replace the supplied cartridge with my vintage Audio Technica AT 125 LC cartridge. Amazingly, this cartridge from 1981 still souns great!

                                  There are sooooo many internet reviews of this turntable, it's probably impossible to add something someone else hasn't already written. That being said, in my every-man opinion I think this is the BEST turntable out there for the money. It sounds great, looks good, and it's not too expensive.

                                  After receiving this, I unboxed it and had it thrown together within just a few minutes. Admittedly, I've never setup an adjustable tonearm, so after 5 minutes at You Tube I was all set! My previous turntable was fully automatic, so there was small period of getting used to lifting the needle and stopping the platter manually.

                                  I will say this to the great people at Audio-Technica; while I think this looks good, I do think AT could take this model a step in another direction. Do we really need +/- pitch adjust, pitch lock, or even USB? I think most listeners that aren't DJ'ing seriously don't need these options. I think AT should flesh a new model out of this thing, remove the aforementioned features, replace the silver/black deck with some nice stained wood, and kill the cheapish built-in RCA cables for just straight gold-plated inputs. What a great model that would be! AT, are you listening? I'll even offer to test-drive a model like this ;)
