Hey Wargod,
Are you plugging this turntable directly into a amp? I still have my stereo that I purchased in the early 90's that I have painstakingly taken care of and still works great. I am using a Kenwood Stereo receiver.

I also have my original 80's Technics Quartz Direct Drive turntable. I had a few extra needles/cartridges, which I am now out of. Thinking of just getting a new turntable and the Audio-Technica AT-LP120-USB Record Turntable. Will it work?

Also, did you replace the needle/cartridge in your new Audio-Technica turntable?

Ult, that turntable comes with a built in pre-amp.

I have that turntable too and WF is correct, it has a built in pre-amp. I use the preamp and plug right into my Denon home theater receiver (in the video AUX inputs)

I replaced the cartridge with this one:

So then it should work plugged into receiver into the turntable input.

What's the point of the pre-amp?

That's the one thing I hate about buying things on-line is you can't physically see it.

Ult, here's a great review of that turntable: http://www.soundadviceblog.com/reviews/audio-technica-at-lp120-usb-turntable-a-real-find-at-200/

It should answer most of your questions as that guy is very thorough and knowledgeable.

Correct! You can also turn the pre-amp off, you don't have to use it. In your case, you can use just use your receiver since it probably does the RIAA equalization.

I think they added it since new receivers don't have a turntable plug in with the RIAA EQ, so with it onboard you can just plug into any jack on the receiver

With my meager woodworking skills, I made plinths for my Dual 1215-S & 1219:
