What customers say about "Key Specs"
Stanton T92 USB Direct Drive DJ Turntable
  • Direct Drive motor seems high powered and extremely accurate.
  • It is mostly manually operated, so you have to put down the arm/needle yourself.
  • Counterweight and anti-skating controls all work as they should.
  • Nice layout on the controls.
  • My hands are not as steady as I'd like, so extreme care is needed to manually cue the tone arm. But I'm adapting.
Audio-Technica AT-LP120-USB Direct-Drive Professional Turntable in Silver
  • The beltless direct drive does not use a belt. Just drop it into place.
  • The direct drive motor one can tune with the pitch control should it become inaccurate (it isn't, the strobe to platter gives quick visual reference of the accuracy).
  • Direct drive that stops and starts records immediately.
  • The direct drive mechanism starts up fast and brakes automatically when you stop rotation.
  • This product is amazing. High quality. Heavy, sturdy and a tough direct drive!
  • The only negative is that this is not a fully automatic turntable, my first. Meaning that at the end of the record, the listener must make the move to end the session. This is the only negative I have found so far.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Stanton T92 USB Direct Drive DJ Turntable
  • Very nice unit! It also weights in at about 40 lbs and is made with an incredible thick aluminum chassis.
  • On the positive side, this machine has substantial weight to it, which I suspect is intended to make it less vulnerable to vibration.
  • It has real weight and bulk to it, and looks like a piece of DJ equipment.
  • Excellent design. The metal pieces make it feel more professional than any other plastic based table.
  • The design seems nice, but I wouldn't use most of the switches and levers that are on it.
Audio-Technica AT-LP120-USB Direct-Drive Professional Turntable in Silver
  • Well, It has a nice weight to it, the feet are a nice size to provide not just lift, but actual slight tilt-able support.
  • They sound good could be louder, but the sound fills the room and they have a good amount of base for the small size.
  • Perfect for a small to medium size room.
  • The weight of this unit is impressive.
  • It is a bit pricy and I've seen some of smaller size but those are of no means problems with this one.

What customers say about "Audio"
Stanton T92 USB Direct Drive DJ Turntable
  • Its audio is top notch for the price great beginner table.
  • Set at 3 g weight and anti skate, the stylus rides the grooves perfectly at every section of the record.
  • The cleanup was as good or better as any other software I've used for this purpose.
  • It's great. Best turntable I've ever owned. I'm not a DJ,so I just listen to my records. Everything is clear. Easy to set up.
  • This turntable was purchased for use in transferring my record collection to CDs.
Audio-Technica AT-LP120-USB Direct-Drive Professional Turntable in Silver
  • The included cartridge is a top-notch value, it’s got a good amount of weight in the unit and platter, the direct drive motor is strong, and it looks nice on a shelf.
  • This record player played it just fine, without skipping, and only minor hissing.
  • It actually made the needle bounce on the record!
  • The speed of the motor is very even - it required no adjustment out of the box - although that is easy to do as I tried adjusting it.
  • Speeds are very accurate, dynamic range of the provided cartridge is excellent, and the versatility of being able to run it into an amp or use its own preamp is a nice feature.

What customers say about "Features"
Stanton T92 USB Direct Drive DJ Turntable
  • For listening to vinyl, I'm finding this turntable to be flawless.
  • I bought it for converting my vinyl records to mp3 format and it works perfectly for that task.
  • This is an excellent quality turntable! I only use it for casual listening, but with my Sharp stereo system I get the fullness of my vinyl.
  • Entry level vinyl fans may have trouble finding the sweet spot of pressure and skid control, but it's otherwise a great player.
  • The only thing I would change: I would add a hard cover to it instead of its cloth cover.
  • The only other drawback is the lack of a real, plastic dust cover. Stanton gives you a cloth cover that fits really well, but it looks a little naff and of course it won't really protect the tone arm.
Audio-Technica AT-LP120-USB Direct-Drive Professional Turntable in Silver
  • Plays my vinyl collection perfectly with fully manual operation.
  • My vinyl collect sounds great and I've had no problems in 5 years. For me that's 5 stars!
  • The hinged cover opens with a good, solid feel and stays put in the open position.
  • I like that the cover is a heavy piece of plastic that feels like you're really closing the thing.
  • The thickness of the dust cover was also impressive.
