FAQs on Audio-Technica AT-LP120XUSB-BK Direct-Drive Turntable

How do I set my pitch control?

To adjust the pitch, simply turn the dial located on top of the turntable. You will see a needle move across the record groove. To return the needle to the center position, rotate the dial counterclockwise until the needle returns to the center.

How do I change speeds?

Simply push the button located on the front of the turntable and select one of the three available speeds.

Can I skip tracks while recording?

Yes! Simply press the “Record” button on the front of the unit and then press the “Skip” button on the remote control.

Can you play more than one record at the same time?

Up to five records may be played at one time, but the quality degrades rapidly if more than two are played simultaneously. If you wish to play several records simultaneously, consider purchasing a separate preamplifier.

How long should it take between plays?

We recommend a minimum interval of 15 minutes between plays.

Is it possible to speed up the playback?

You cannot increase playback speed on the LP120X.

Why did you choose this model?

We chose the LP120X because we wanted an analog direct drive turntable with a built-in USB port. We also wanted a turntable that was easy to use and had all the features needed for vinyl playback.

Does it come with a manual?

Yes, the included instruction manual has step by step instructions on how to operate your new turntable.
