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.

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 highdensity 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 TN3B 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.
