The Numark PT01 Touring turntable is a classically-styled suitcase unit that recalls the popular portable turntables from the past.
PT01 Touring has a rugged case with a handle so you can carry it anywhere. It plays all your 33 1/3, 45 and 78 RPM records, comes with a 45 RPM adapter, and it has built-in stereo speakers for convenient listening without needing to connect external speakers.
In addition, it has RCA outputs for simple connection to home audio equipment and a convenient Auto-Stop feature kicks in when it reaches the end of the record.
With its USB port, included USB cable and downloadable EZ Vinyl/Tape Converter software, converting analog records into digital files for archiving on your computer is a snap.
PT01 Touring far surpasses the old suitcase turntables in versatility, however. It can also operate on its own built-in rechargeable battery-which means you can enjoy your records even if you’re not near a wall plug.
