TEAC TN-400S Turntable Combines the Best of Old and New

Combining high style with high fidelity, TEAC’s new TN-400S turntable weds cutting-edge performance and classic, old-school features with new-school technology in a sleek, stylish design. The product of TEAC’s decades of experience in producing fine turntables, the TN-400S features three-speed (33 1/3, 45, and 78 rpm) operation and a static-balanced, S-shaped tone arm with universal head shell for superior tracking.

An all new, belt-drive, high-torque, DC motor assembly and Neoprene®-coated, high-inertia, aluminum die-cast platter with felt mat combine with a newly designed, low-friction spindle that reduces platter drag, resulting in precise, consistent rotation-speed and tonal accuracy. An anti-skating mechanism keeps the needle securely in the groove. The turntable comes with a pre-installed, replaceable Audio-Technica AT100E MM-equivalent cartridge that weighs 6.5g (±0.2), with a needle pressure of 1.4g (±0.4).

The TN-400S combines high-quality analog audio performance with the convenience of modern digital technology. On the analog side, it sports a built-in phono EQ amplifier; switchable, gold-plated RCA phono/line outputs so you can play vinyl with or without the phono EQ; and gold-plated tone-arm contacts. A grounding terminal is on the rear panel, and an RCA audio cable with ground wiring is included. On the digital side, the turntable features integrated, 16-bit, 48 kHz, Texas Instruments analog-to-digital converters and a USB Type B port for easy archiving of your vinyl collection to a computer.

External vibrations are an enemy of turntable performance, so the TN-400S boasts a robust, high-density MDF plinth that provides both vibration isolation and elegance, resulting in rock solid performance. Floating construction, using decoupled feet, provides high feedback resistance. The knobs and rubber-tipped feet feature machined aluminum operation.

In addition to outstanding performance and workmanship, the TN-400S is graced by a classy wooden chassis that will enhance any room. Available in Bordeaux red, with a contemporary matte finish (TN-400S-MR), or in a natural walnut veneer (TN-400S-WA), it includes a detachable dust cover so you can customize it for your personal style. Power is supplied by an included AC adapter.

The TEAC TN-400S offers everything you loved about classic, old-school turntables, along with the advantages of digital technology and attractive, contemporary design. Give one a spin at your TEAC dealer.
