2 questions about output and pitch.
1. Are there rca outputs on the turntable for use with a stereo receiver?
2. I found a turntable will allow you to slow down the speed without affecting the pitch. This is useful to musicians trying to learn quick/difficult passages without having to transpose them.
Will the Audio Technica do this?
1) The audio outputs will work with a stereo reciever. Keep in mind that this turntable has a built in preamp so you need to plug it into a "line in," "tape in," "cd in" or an "aux in." If you plug it into your "audio in" you will have a lot of unpleasant and loud distortion.
2) This turntable does not have the pitch control you are asking about. I personally have a professional turntable with pitch control but it is quite limited. You can only go up and down about 8 rpm which equates to about an octave or two, depending on the speed of the disc. There is some very powerful and inexpensive software available that will do this, and much more. The quality of this turntable is quite good, so it would be worth it for you to consider that option.
