You have chosen...wisely.
You'll like that turntable, George. I also upgraded the cartridge when I bought my AT-LP120 to an Audio-Technica AT440MLa.
My turntable doesn't have the USB port. It wasn't available at the time and the model you bought superceded mine. I had to buy a Behringer U-CONTROL UCA202 for USB capability. I paid about $100 more than you for my AT-LP120 in 2005 and that's why I said it was a great deal.
Enjoy your new box set on your new turntable!!
As of September 20011, the turntable now comes with the AT95E cartridge, which is supposed to be pretty good, but I wanted to upgrade anyway. The AT440MLa is an excellent cartridge which I may get down the road, depending on how I like the Shure, which is said to have a very warm sound, the AT95E is said to be brighter sounding.
The turntable should arrive Friday. I started opening the albums today. Geez, I was like a kid when I opened Magical Mystery Tour and The White Album. I got The White Album for Christmas in 1968 and wow did that bring back memories!
