PRO DJ Turntable AT LP-140x
Before you click off the page, yes we recommend this PRO DECK for HOME USE. Read on.
We're very happy to be stocking this little number. Ever since Panasonic killed off the Technics 1200 range we've been looking for something to take its place and it's finally here.
Yes Technics have brought the 1200 back, but at $2000 a pop, it’s not feasible for a lot of people.
The LP140x ups the ante where the LP120 and LP1240 (previous AT turntables didn’t quite cut it). They have solved a bunch of issues, not the least of which was the crap second start./stop button that always got in the way and the platter is finally recessed for your mixing fingers’ happiness.
For $100 more than the home-use-only LP120, this machine is a far better build and way more solid and durable. Drop us a line if you want to know more.
We have plenty of on-street parking, come visit and check out our range.
As we believe in human interaction, we do not sell online. We find that most people like to have a good ol' gasbag about how to set up the tone arm weight and anti-skating and how to care for records and the like, which we can do on phone but LOVE to do in person. If you do have questions but cannot come in, we still like to answer those, so just call or email us :)
ALSO: Don't buy electronics from overseas! Even if you get a transformer, you will be buying a product that is not supported locally for service or repairs but FAR MORE IMPORTANTLY it will not have passed the Australian Government's QC inspectors and will therefor be illegal. This means that you will be legally liable if anything untoward (read, burn your house down or electrocute someone) happens and insurance will not cover it. True Story. And now, our two most popular decks; the Audio-Technica LP60 and LP120.
Oh, ps, we can sort out any pre-amp or connectivity issues you might have :)
Entry Level versus Home Hi-Fi.
While the entry level deck works a treat it is not adjustable or up-gradable. This means it 1) wears your records more over time and 2) cannot have a new cartridge installed on it should you wish to upgrade in the future. A good rule of thumb is that if you are intending to continue buying new records, collecting etc, then you are probably better off investing in the home Hifi turntable, while if you are just messing around, buying old records from op-shops or occasionally listening to old records you inherited, the entry level will do just fine (in our opinion the LP60 is the best of this design available in Australia). We can elaborate on this quite extensively if required ..
Why do we only sell one brand?
We could prattle on about the tyranny of choice but it comes down to this: We don't like drama and we don't like you having to come back with issues. In our 13 years of experience Audio-Technica has the least coming-backness of the lot and they clearly failed acting class because the lack of drama surrounding this brand is palpable. Finally, both the LP60 and LP120 consistently come top or very near top in almost all comparisons between brands. A simple google search will verify this.
