TEAC launches a 'Tie-Die' turntable

Teac have launched the TN-420 'Tie-Die' turntable, according to the blurb this 2-speed turntable combines a high density MDF base with a machined aluminium platter to deliver top-notch resonance rejection, speed control and, most importantly, audio fidelity. 

And for easy connection to virtually any audio system, the TN-420 features switchable Phono / Line level outputs on RCA connectors as well as a digital output (via USB) for easy connection to a Mac or PC for playback and/or archiving of your favourite LPs.

TEAC TN-420 - MAIN FEATURES

  • 2-speed Turntable including 33-1/3 and 45 RPM for LP/EP record playback
  • Unique ‘Tie-Dye’ finish
  • Built-in phono equaliser amplifier for MM type cartridge (Line/Phono output switchable)
  • USB digital output for transferring music from vinyl to Mac or PC

  • Japanese-made MM-type cartridge (audio-technica AT95E) included

Unique 'Tie-Dye' colour design

The eye-catching appearance of the TN-420 is achieved through a modern hydro-graphics printing process and adds a groovy touch to any music room. Underneath the aesthetic is a high density MDF cabinet designed to minimise unwanted resonance during playback.

Aluminium belt-drive turntable

The high inertia aluminium die-cast platter is driven by a high-torque DC motor with a durable Neoprene rubber belt to achieve stable rotation. In addition, highly accurate rotation of the platter is maintained by a polished spindle (machined from a stainless steel block) contained within a durable bronze spindle holder.

MM-type cartridge phono equaliser/amplifier

Enjoy vinyl playback with any amplifier. The TN-420 supports both both Phono and Line output, and allows you to enjoy your favourite albums on virtually any music system.

Built-in USB Digital Output and Analogue Phono/Line Output

An onboard analogue-to-digital converter from Texas Instruments allows you to transfer music via USB to your PC and to create high quality back-ups of your favourite albums. In addition, a pair of gold-plated RCA connectors are employed to ensure an excellent connection with your other components. 

Corrosion-resistant gold-plated terminals

To ensure years of reliable performance, gold-plated terminals on the headshell connectors help resist oxidation over time.

2-speed Turntable including 33-1/3 and 45 RPM for LP/EP record playback

Perfect for albums or singles, the TN-420 features both 33-1/3 and 45 RPM playback and a manual tone-arm lifter for complete control of your music experience.

audio-technica MM-type cartridge 

The TN-420 comes with an audio-technica AT95E cartridge which has a well-deserved reputation for accuracy, clarity and detail.
