Audio-Technica AT-LP240-USB & M-Audio BX5a

Back in the Audience room, PR representative Frank Doris mentioned that Audio-Technica was displaying a turntable at the Convention Center. Of course, I wanted to see it: Audio-Technica’s AT-LP240-USB direct-drive professional turntable ($499) was mated to a pair of M-Audio BX5a active loudspeakers ($400/pair), making a fun and easy system.

A Chicago record was spinning. I made it just in time to flip the side. Nobody noticed.

I smiled.
