Description

Analog Turntable

A new, high-performance standard for belt-drive analog turntables

The TN-3B is a stylish, sleek-looking belt-driven turntable with a built-in MM-type PHONO EQ amplifier and USB digital output.

It employs a new tonearm with knife-edge, pivot-point bearings, co-developed with SAEC, the high-end tonearm manufacturer, for superlative stability and resolution.

The belt-drive mechanism, meanwhile, helps mitigate any unwanted cogging effects (ie fine pulsing) from the operation of the motor, to ensure a precise and smooth platter rotation.

The TN-3B also employs a high-precision NJM8080 op-amp in its in-built Phono EQ amplifier, allowing the user to enjoy the sound of their vinyl records with low distortion and in high quality. In addition, a built-in Analog-to-Digital converter and USB port allow users to digitise their vinyl libraries on their PC/Mac. 

The TN-3B delivers a natural and well-balanced sound quality and is quick and easy to set up and start enjoying. We believe it sets a new standard that will satisfy the needs of both audiophiles and ardent record collectors.

TN3B-MECHANISM

KNIFE-EDGE, PIVOT-POINT TONE-ARM BEARINGS

In collaboration with SAEC Corporation, a world-famous, high-end tonearm manufacturer, the TN-4D’s tonearm employs a knife-edge, pivot-point bearing. Unlike the case for tonearms with conventional bearings, any fine vertical movements that take place in this tonearm actually help in delivering a more dynamic sound with excellent resolution. The S-shaped tonearm also employs a universal headshell fitting, allowing users to quickly and easily swap cartridges/headshells, and supports a wide range of cartridge weights (from 14 – 23g / 0.5 – 0.8 oz.)

PRECISION ANTI-SKATING AND STYLUS-PRESSURE ADJUSTMENT

The static-balanced, S-shape tone-arm is equipped with a counterweight for precise stylus-pressure adjustment, as well as an anti-skating mechanism for accurate tracking force adjustment, allowing the cartridge to accurately play any quality vinyl disc.

PRE-INSTALLED VM-SERIES CARTRIDGE

An audio-technica AT-VM95E cartridge with an elliptical-shaped stylus tip comes pre-installed on the headshell for convenience. After you’ve opened the box, set up the platter and mounted the headshell on the tonearm, you’ll be ready to enjoy your records.

* Replacement styli should be available at the retail store where you purchased the unit, or via the TEAC On-line store. (TEAC On-line store is available in selected countries.)

* The VM-series cartridge is a MM (Moving Magnet) type design, and is compatible with all conventional MM-type phono EQ amplifiers.

BUILT-IN MM-TYPE PHONO EQ AMPLIFIER

The TN-3B incorporates an MM-type phono EQ amplifier, allowing you to connect the turntable to a conventional amplifier/hi-fi system that lacks a PHONO input. A low distortion, hi-fi-grade op-amp, the NJM8080, is employed to boost the low-level signals from the phono cartridge up to LINE level.

EXTERNAL BELT-DRIVE WITH ALUMINUM DIE-CAST PLATTER

A belt-drive arrangement is employed in order to minimise any motor cogging effects by driving the outer rim of the platter (which has a larger diameter, mass and surface area).

 

LUXURIOUS, MULTI-LAYER LACQUER PAINT FINISH

All internal components are mounted on a robust and high-density MDF plinth for rigidity and vibration-deadening. Thanks to its sleek and stylish design, the TN-3B looks at home in most domestic environments, creating the perfect setting for listening to vinyl records.

USB DIGITAL OUTPUT FOR DIGITAL ARCHIVING

A USB port on the back panel delivers CD-quality digital audio to your PC/Mac, allowing you to record/archive your analog library in a high quality, digital audio format. Once you have archived your vinyl to digital, it’s a simple matter to listen to them while out and about, via a smartphone/portable audio player, or in your car (by burning them onto a CD-R or transferring them to a memory card/stick).

And to ensure pristine signal transfer, gold-plated PHONO/LINE output terminals are employed to prevent analog audio signals from losing quality as a result of oxidation.

33-1/3 AND 45 RPM 2-SPEED TURNTABLE

The TN-3B supports both 33-1/3 and 45 rpm for LP and EP records. Our insistence on quality engineering can even be seen in the construction of the rotary control for start-up/speed selection, formed of machined aluminium.

INSULATING FEET WITH EXCELLENT SHOCK ABSORPTION

The insulating feet comprise a machined aluminium shell, topped with a rubber cushion that is fixed to the high-density MDF plinth. Thanks to their excellent shock absorption characteristics, the TN-3B is very resistant to acoustic feedback.

HONEYCOMB PATTERNED BOTTOM PANEL

In order to achieve sleek cabinet design without compromising rigidity, the bottom panel is imprinted with a honeycomb pattern that minimises unwanted vibrations.
