Crate Diggers New York 2019 Recap
A day filled with live music, on-site DJs, vinyl vendors, and live experiences, Crate Diggers promotes vinyl, collectability, and all things music. New York’s event began with attendees having the chance to browse the record fair. Turntable fanatics spent hours flipping through classic records and A-T proudly displayed some of our favorite turntables and headphones for easy listening.
After digging through dozens of vinyl-filled crates, attendees had the opportunity to stop by the A-T booth to give them a spin on our turntables. On display included the AT-LP140XP, AT-LP120XUSB, and AT-LP60XHP-GM turntable/headphone bundle.
However, the beloved #BigM50s were the main attraction at the A-T booth! Music lovers enjoyed taking photos and posing with the oversized ATH-M50x headphones throughout the event.
