The Audio-Technica AT-LP120XUSB has been a firm favourite with vinyl lovers for well over a decade but has since been revised for better audio quality and reliability. Not only do its retro aesthetics look the part, but its engaging sound and handy features also make it a viable choice for vinyl fans, record collectors and sound purists alike. 

Whilst its AT-VM95E cartridge traces every last detail from the grooves of your prised records, a built-in switchable phono preamp makes the AT-LP120XUSB compatible with most active speakers and stereo systems, including the mighty Sonos Five


The Sonos Five is the flagship music speaker in the Sonos range, and it delivers both studio-quality sound and superb multiroom capabilities when used with other Sonos products. The AT-LP120XUSB connects to the Five’s line-in port for truly room-filling sound for a fantastic Turntable and Speaker Bundle, but the Five also provides a world of digital audio streaming from your favourite music services and access to the Sonos S2 app on iOS, Android and desktop devices.
