The AT-LPW40WN is a fully manual, belt-drive turntable designed
to give you optimal high-fidelity audio reproduction from vinyl. It features an
aesthetically pleasing anti-resonance MDF (medium density fiberboard) plinth
with simulated walnut wood veneer to limit low-frequency acoustical feedback
and a sensor-monitored motor to ensure accurate platter rotation speeds at
33-1/3 and 45 RPM. 

The turntable includes a straight carbon-fiber tonearm with
adjustable tracking force and an AT-HS4 universal ½”-mount headshell with
an AT-VM95E Dual Moving Magnet phono cartridge. Audio-Technica has been a
leader in phono cartridge design for more than 50 years, and that expertise
shows in the versatile, high-performance AT-VM95E cartridge, which comes with a
0.3 x 0.7 mil elliptical stylus, but is also compatible with any VM95 Series
replacement stylus, offering a wide choice of options for every budget and

The AT-LPW40WN is equipped with a built-in selectable phono
preamp and a detachable dual RCA output cable to enable direct connection to
