The Audio-Technica company has been making some new waves in the DJ vinyl turntable market and I, for one, like what I see. A couple of weeks ago, we brought you the review of the Audio-Technica AT-LP120-USB turntable which is basically a nice rendition of the iconic classic Technics 1200 deck. Not only was it a good look-a-like, but it also performed rather well for its price. Audio-Technica has now introduced an even better SUPER-OEM turntable that can hang with the best of them called the AT-LP1240-USB. Check out our Full HD-Video review after the jump.
