The Audio Technica AT-LP120-USB is a classically appointed turntable that takes more than a few design cues from the legendary Technics SL-1200MK2.

Along with high-end features such as a high-torque direct drive motor, dual magnet phono cartridge, stroboscopic platter indicator, reverse playback, and multiple playback speeds (33, 45, and 78), the turntable also boasts a USB connection for recording directly to your computer.

The Audio Technica AT-LP120-USB turntable is available now for $429.

Again, similar to the Technics SL-1200MK2, the Audio Technica deck includes a pop-out lamp that helps with playing records in low-light conditions (you know, romantic lighting).
