For those of you that remember vinyl records, and may even have some still (I do!) then you may want to check out the new Audio-Technica LP2D-USB which includes a turntable, phono cartridge, a USB cable that connects the turntable directly to a computer, and other accessories. Crystal Griffith, Audio-Technica Consumer Marketing Manager, noted:

“Many people still own their classic LPs and 45s, and a younger generation is discovering and collecting vinyl. The AT-LP2D-USB offers users a simple, cost-effective solution for transferring records to digital files and portable players, and for listening to records on a home music system.”

The deck (turntable) works at 33-1/3 and 45 RPM, so it plays 12″ LP’s and 7″ Singles (this is making me nostalgic) and delivers sound via a balanced aluminum platter, precision Dual Magnet stereo cartridge with replaceable stylus, and a pickup arm with soft damping control. You can hook-up the platter to a desktop or laptop with a USB cable and then run Cakewalk PYRO (for PC) or Audacity (for Mac or PC) which converts the audio on a record to MP3, WAV or Windows Media audio files.

The Audio-Technica AT-LP2D-USB LP is available immediately for $229.

Audio-Technica will be exhibiting at the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall 2, Booth #25356
