This is by far the most highly recommended turntable from South Rhodes Records. For the price, this turntable provides the most features of any other on the market, is solidly built, and will last for many years to come. It's a little closer to the professional end but, we do well no matter what level of collector or listener you are. Also, with a built-in phono pre-amp, you can plug this directly into a set of powered speakers and press play!

The LP120 features a high-torque direct-drive motor for quick start-ups and a USB output that connects directly to your computer. Other features include: forward and reverse play capability; a cast aluminum platter with slipmat and a start/stop button; three speeds 33/45/78; selectable high-accuracy quartz-controlled pitch lock and pitch change slider control with +/-10% or +/-20% adjustment ranges; and removable hinged dust cover.
