Audio-Technica has released the latest version of their flagship turntable, the AT-LP1240-USB XP.
This high powered Super-OEM DJ turntable has the same strong motor and tonearm as the original version, along with a new matte-black aluminum finish. The new AT-LP1240-USB XP also comes bundled with the new Audio-Technica AT-XP5 DJ cartridge and stylus. Otherwise, this latest version has virtually all the same features, functions, and dimensions as the original which reviewed six years ago.
Audio-Technica has also released a few other products for DJ's as well. The DJ range includes the ATH-PRO5X and ATH-PRO7X Professional DJ Headphones, the AT-LP1240-USB XP Direct-Drive Professional DJ Turntable, and the AT-XP5 and AT-XP7 Moving Magnet DJ Cartridges. Hopefully, the new headphones will adopt some of the same qualities that the Audio-Technica ATH-M headphones that DJ's love today.
Seeing Audio-Technica make new DJ cartridges is encouraging as we've recently heard that SHURE will cease to create any cartridges going forward.
