Product Research


Direct-drive Motor w/ 3 Speeds: The Audio-Technica AT-LP120XBT-USB is a professional stereo turntable that features a high-torque, direct-drive motor for quick start-ups. The AT-LP120XBT-USB turntable supports 33-1/3, 45 (adapter included), & 78 RPM records require an additional cartridge that is not included and sold separately (see Accessories Tab).

Die-Cast Aluminum Platter: The Audio-Technica AT-LP120XBT-USB turntable employs a professional anti-resonance, die-cast aluminum platter with a slip mat. The Stroboscopic platter provides a speed indicator.

Balanced Tone Arm & MM Cartridge: The Audio-Technica turntable features a Balanced S-shaped tone arm with hydraulically damped lift control and lockable rest. You will need to install the included Audio-Technica AT-VM95E Dual Magnet MM phono cartridge which features 0.3 x 0.7 mil elliptical stylus and 1/2" mount universal headshell (AT-HS6). A popup stylus target light is used for easier cueing in low light.

Built-In Switchable Phono Preamp w/ Stereo RCA Outputs: A selectable internal stereo phono pre-amplifier allows the turntable to plug directly to components with no dedicated Phono MM input. The turntable features stereo RCA outputs and comes with a 40" stereo RCA cable.

Built-In Bluetooth 5.0: In addition to a wired stereo RCA output, the Audio-Technica AT-LP120XBT-USB features built-in Bluetooth 5.0 with support for wireless audio streaming (A2DP). You'll be able to wirelessly pair the turntable with a Bluetooth-enabled speaker, headphone, or home audio receiver. In addition to Bluetooth's standard SBC codec, the AT-LP120XBT-USB offers support for Qualcomm's aptX code for higher quality and higher fidelity wireless audio playback that is close to "CD-quality" (16-bit/44.1kHz).

  • To enjoy high-quality aptX, your Bluetooth-enabled speaker, headphone or home audio receiver will also need to support aptX. Otherwise, Bluetooth wireless audio streaming from the turntable will be limited to SBC.
  • The AT-LP120XBT-USB turntable can be paired paired with up to eight playback devices, but only one playback device (headphone, speaker, receiver) can be connected and used at a time.
  • The turntable has a wireless Bluetooth range of approximatley 33' (10m).

Note: You cannot use the wired Stereo RCA outputs and the wireless Bluetooth 5.0 output at the same time.

USB-B Out for Vinyl Recording: The Audio-Technica AT-LP120XBT-USB turntable features a USB-B output, comes with a 6.5' USB cable, and supports downloadable Audacity recording software that allows you to convert your vinyl records to digital audio files. You will need to plug the turntable into your laptop or computer via USB and install the downloadable Audacity recording software. The Audacity software is compatible with both PC (7 or above) & Mac (OS X 10.7 or above). Your vinyl records can be downloaded and recorded to your laptop or computer at CD-quality (16-bit/44.1 or 48kHz).

Note: Other third-party recording software packages are also compatible with this turntable.

Customer Q&A

10 questions already asked

How big around in diameter are the feet on bottom? Thinking about, if I buy this turntable, putting felt pads on bottom of the 4 circle feet to protect top of wood cabinet it would be sitting on.
[ RQ1959  Jul 08, 2022 ]
1 answer
We don't have a measurement listed for these feet sadly, Roberta. They will fall somewhere in between the 2.5-3" mark. Using a felt pad to protect the wood cabinet is a good idea! You can also use items like this IsoAcoustics zaZen Turntable isolation platform I've linked below. This will actually help the turntable sound a lot better (useful for IF you are planning to use the USB recording feature) and It's got little rubberized feet that are less likely to scratch the wood cabinet.
[ T  Jul 08, 2022 ]  Staff
Does this come with everything I would need to connect it to a sound bar?
[ Sheila  Jun 10, 2022 ]
1 answer
If your soundbar has Bluetooth capability, then you can connect right out of the box wirelessly Sheila. If your soundbar has a traditional AUX in port for audio input from an external device you will need one of these stereo breakout cables I've put in the link below. I hope this helps!
[ T  Jun 10, 2022 ]  Staff
what is the stylus shipped with unit?
[ Joey  Mar 28, 2022 ]
1 answer
It is shipped with the Audio-Technica AT-VM95E moving magnet phono cartridge. Sounds wonderful.
[ ROBERTO  Mar 31, 2022 ]
Can I connect this turntable to the usb port of my laptop and listen to music on my Bose wave system via wi-fi?
[ Bob  Jan 12, 2022 ]
1 answer
I use patch cables today, in this case, from the 1/4" headphone jack on the front or phono jacks on the back of my amp to feed audio into my laptop. If you feed directly from the turntable, you may need software to make adjustments in volume and tone. I have found cables for any transitions I have needed. Hope this helps.
[ MEAD  Jan 12, 2022 ]
I'm having difficulty removing the (green)stylus from the cart head provided with the AT-LP 120-USB. Seems to be stuck on tight! I'm afraid to use any force. Any suggestions? Thanks.
[ John  Jan 08, 2022 ]
2 answers
Well, that can't be. The stylus and cartridge came separate when I bought the TT. I placed the stylus in the cart myself when I received the unit. And replace styli are easy to purchase from audio Technica. I have a new one. And I'd like to swap it out. There must be some other explanation.
[ John  Jan 11, 2022 ]
I may be wrong I I'm not sure stylus comes off. I just replaced whole cartridge
[ Scott  Jan 08, 2022 ]
Is the cover easily removable, or would it need to be removed with some tools? I'm not looking to permanently remove it, just when using the turntable, because the place where I want to put it does not have enough height to fully raise the lid.
[ Micky  Dec 03, 2021 ]
5 answers
Hello Micky! I also did not have room to raise the lid on this record player. When I assembled it, I did not assemble the hinges, which are just pieces that slide into slots on the lid and platform. I simply left the hinges off and just place the lid on top of the record player when it is not in use. Hope this helps!
[ JENNIFER L  Dec 04, 2021 ]
It is easily removable - the hinge clips lift out of slots on the back of the turntable, but it does help to see the back of it when putting it back on if you want to clip it back into place.
[ Darren  Dec 03, 2021 ]
Lifts right off, no tools or tricks needed.
[ STEVEN  Dec 03, 2021 ]
Yes. The top can easily be removed. The hinges are inserted into the top as well as the base.
[ STEPHEN  Dec 03, 2021 ]
It is very easily removed without any tools. If you don't use the removable hinges you could lift the cover vertically and put it away temporarily every time you play it.
[ R  Dec 03, 2021 ]
Does this turntable stylus have auto return?
[ Earl  Sep 12, 2021 ]
5 answers
This turntable does not have an auto return function.
[ RICK C.  Sep 13, 2021 ]
[ Timothy  Sep 13, 2021 ]
No it does not , which is the only negative for this unit.
[ RALPH  Sep 13, 2021 ]
No it does not. I was concerned myself until I began using it. I suppose it is the counter balance that helps but I don't have any problems at all with it at all!!
[ STEPHEN  Sep 13, 2021 ]
[ STEVEN  Sep 13, 2021 ]
Will this turntable (or any Bluetooth enabled turntable) connect via Bluetooth to my Denon AVR-X3300W?
[ Loren  Aug 25, 2021 ]
2 answers
I don't have a Denon but it works on my pioneer and work well. After the first parring the receiver connects as soon as the turntable is powered up.
[ PHILLIP  Aug 26, 2021 ]
If your Denon is Bluetooth enabled it should. Better sound would be obtained by connecting via cables.
[ R  Aug 26, 2021 ]
Can I hook this up to my Pioneer stereo receiver? Into the phone jack.
[ Frank  Jun 02, 2021 ]
1 answer
You certainly can if it's a phono input. You could use the turntable's phono amp or the receiver's included one. Happy testing.
[ R  Jun 07, 2021 ]
Can I plug this turntable into the USB port on my laptop or PC And record albums to disk?
[ Rob  May 07, 2021 ]
1 answer
Yes, the turntable even includes the cable and suggestions on free software to use.
