Audio-Technica Exhibits New Line of DJ Products


Audio-Technica has debuted a new line of DJ products at The NAMM Show. The range includes the ATH-PRO5X and ATH-PRO7X Professional DJ Headphones, the AT-LP1240-USB XP Direct-Drive Professional DJ Turntable, and the AT-XP5 and AT-XP7 Moving Magnet DJ Cartridges.

Audio-Technica introduced two DJ-specific headphone models: the over-ear ATH-PRO5X (in black and white) and the on-ear ATH-PRO7X (in black). Both models reportedly feature impressive power handling, excellent isolation, robust construction, and maximum comfort for long sessions. The PRO5X over-ear headphones are equipped with 40 mm drivers and offer 1,500 mW max input power for excellent audio reproduction even at high volume. They feature rotating earpieces for one-ear monitoring and detachable locking cables (3.9 – 9.8-foot coiled and 3.9-foot straight). The PRO7X on-ear headphones are equipped with 45 mm drivers and offer 2,000 mW max input power for extremely accurate sound reproduction. They include detachable locking cables (3.9 – 9.8-foot coiled and 3.9-foot straight) and premium, soft, durable earpads.

The AT-LP1240-USB XP is a direct-drive professional DJ turntable outfitted with the new AT-XP5 DJ cartridge. The turntable utilizes a powerful direct-drive 16-pole, three-phase motor for unwavering speed stability along with easy back-cueing, forward and reverse play and quiet operation at 33-1/3, 45 or 78 RPM. The turntable’s S-shaped tone arm has various adjustments available, including tracking force, anti-skate, and vertical tracking angle. It features a removable headshell with the newly designed AT-XP5 cartridge pre-mounted.

The AT-LP1240-USB XP turntable comes with numerous additional DJ-friendly features including a damped cast-aluminum platter with stroboscopic speed markings and slip mat, an illuminated speed indicator and adjustable pitch control, a start/stop button, a removable stylus target light, a dedicated tone arm grounding lug, a hydraulically-damped lift lever and a locking tone arm rest. The turntable has a built-in switchable phono pre-amplifier with dual RCA output jacks with detachable cables. An additional USB output allows direct connection to a computer without any special drivers, making it easy to transfer vinyl records to digital music files. Included are a USB cable, audio adapter cables, removable dust cover, and 45 RPM adapter.

Rounding out the DJ line are two new moving magnet DJ phono cartridges - the AT-XP5 and AT-XP7 designed to be robust and reliable, with a 0.3 x 0.7 mil elliptical bonded stylus and a tracking force range of 2.0 to 4.0 grams, offering the ultimate tracking ability for even the widest grooves and deepest bass. This tracking ability is combined with a powerful output level, with the AT-XP5 giving 5.5 mV and the AT-XP7 giving 6.0 mV.
