Definitely a good idea to purchase this unit with the supplied cartridge. No tracking weight or anti-skid values were provided but easily found on the manufacturer's website. If you set 2 gms as the optimum value for each you'll not go far wrong. If you've not previously set up a turntable arm you will benefit from 'Googling' the procedure and inwardly digesting the procedure before you begin.

This is a very substantial piece of kit that works right out of the box (just set the tracking and anti-skid values as above). I spent a little time ensuring that the turntable was (a) perfectly level and (b) sited away from any loudspeakers so that any base vibrations wouldn't cause problems. That done, the performance of the turntable is very good indeed.

If, like me, you're purchasing this deck to start the long and arduous process of digitising your vinyl collection, it's important to carefully clean your old albums with a good quality liquid cleaner and then a good quality brush before you play your first tracks(both of which can be found on Amazon). Only after careful cleaning did I finally drop the needle - and the results were amazing.

I downloaded the latest version of Audacity onto a Win8 laptop where it performed well. There are other (less geeky) pieces of software that you can use with this turntable if you don't want to become an 'Audacity' expert, and I tried a few, but the one thing that Audacity does provide is total control - once you've figured everything out. There's an endless amount of help available from 'Google' when you're first setting up Audacity.

Overall I'd say that the ATLP120 represents pretty good value and delivers very good results if you take a little care in the initial setup. I couldn't find any negatives to report.

I bought this (sorry not through Amazon) to replace a very old Dual CS 505 Mk2 + NAD pre-amp and having read the usual caustic comments from the Audiophile experts about how bad integrated pre-amps sound etc. I decided to go ahead with this one anyway. Why? Because the the Dual was getting unreliable and never sounded as good as people claimed. It is flimsy and prone to acoustic feedback. The pre-amp was OK when new but no better than that and the earthing arrangements to eliminate hum from the overall system were also unreliable.

Setting up the Audio Technica system was really simple; they have even added tone-arm recommended settings since the previous review was written. Just worked perfectly first time! No hum. The unexpected bonus was that it sounded significantly better than the Dual + NAD and that was with the same AT95E cartridge. I probably have cloth ears but the bass was much more satisfying and the whole presentation through my existing Denon/Tannoy system was much higher quality. Even worn 50 year old LPs sounded great. I know this is the usual reaction when you re-discover your LPs but I also knew I had come to dread using the old turntable so there is something in it.

The deck itself seems to be a copy of the iconic Technics SL1210 product which is no longer made and second hand units sell for lots of money. It is surprisingly very heavy and that is a good thing. The arm works well (better than the Dual one) and even has height adjustment to allow for thick mats or slab-like 78s though I doubt I will need this feature. It also has a forward/reverse option which I will certainly never use. I was looking for some advice about this in the instructions because I seem to remember that 'hyper-eliptical' styluses do not like being reversed.

I have owned that many turntables. Linn, Thorens, Rega, Mitchell, VPI, Systemdek to name just a few. Forget the looks. Forget the price. Forget that "direct drive turntables don't sound as good as belt driven in hi-fi terms ( what nonsense). This sounds great! Most noticable, excellent sound stage, great detail, solid bass, difficult to make it feedback, extremely good timing and pace & rythm due to mass and motor speed stability, just all around very musical. What a bargain, I love it! It really sould not be this good for such a small price. Please note I am not a novice. I own 2 Technics 1210s and a high end hi fi system. This turntable has been evaluated using a McIntosh MA 6300'amp & JBL TL 260 speakers. just buy one...

Superb turntable, solid, heavy and easy to assemble. The difference playing a record on this versus the Ion USB turntable I had before is unbelievable. Really. It made that much difference. I have it line in to a LG home cinema set up and it is a big and beefy sound. The whole set up process from opening the box to playing a disc took me about 15 minutes, and believe me I am no audio engineer. It really is that simple. I will upgrade eventually to a proper amp/speakers set up, but this is perfect as it is.
The turntable is a beautiful object in itself, and worth every penny. The quality is there in the manufacture and materials. For example the 45 rpm adapter is turned metal. That's something that you would normally only see on very top end gear. The comparisons have been made to the Technics line, and they are deserved. Basically, this is a top of the line turntable at a bargain price.

The only con I have with it is that it is not a semi -automatic so when the record is ended, the arm doesn't lift up nor does the turntable stop. If you were out of the room for a while, I imagine that it would pretty soon wear the stylus out. I still give this 5 stars and would give it more if possible.

Overall? I won't hesitate to recommend this deck to anybody that is looking for a decent bit of equipment at a very affordable price.
