Thank you. There are so many better turntables out there than these Audio Technica ones that people try to push. I'm convinced that people think they're getting SL 1200s because it looks like one.

For the people in this thread wondering why Kwadguy is saying this:

AT-60 - No upgrade path, thin sound. It's below entry level.

AT-120 - The built in phono pre-amp gets in the way of this thing sounding good unless you mod it. Even if you turn the pre-amp off, the sound is passed through the (very noisy) pre-amp, and you end up with a low quality audio. The solution is to bypass the pre-amp entirely, which involved a soldering iron. The truth is, there are many other better turntables on the market for the same price or less than the AT-120, you just have to go belt. You give up USB functions and arm return functions, but you get a much better turntable in the process. Also, the motor isn't quiet and you're limited in cartridge selection because of it. It's just not a smart purchase. This turntable, an RT-81, an U-Turn, low in Pro-Ject, or one of a number of other turntables in the price range are better options than the AT-120 if your goal is quality audio.

It depends on how thick the lacquer is. You may want to use a Dremel tool to do that.

Jumped up to $190 after I posted though. Cx3 still shows the $150 price.

This has been an awesome first table for me. I did a ton of research and almost spent $400 plus, but this works great for my needs. Definitely would do it again and recommend!

Teac used to be a legit brand. Of course, so did Craig.

For those who are well-versed in turntables, why does this model have a manual arm vs some cheaper ones having automatic arms? I much prefer the automatic type. Am I missing something?

An excellent starter table at the price.

Stay away from Audio Technica.
Why? They seem to be highly recommended everywhere else I go.
