Indulge your vinyl fetish with the new TEAC TN-300 turntable

Press Release dated: 1 Dec 2014

Despite the world being awash with CDs and instant downloads, vinyl records have never gone and it's easy to see why. There's a huge appeal in holding, appreciating and listening to a music medium that's so tangible and inherently special.
TEAC knew that when it introduced its well-known range of retro-styled 'all-in-one' turntable systems several years ago but now it's gone one step further. It's launching a separate hi-fi turntable that's designed from the outset to be used in both analogue and digital worlds… the TN-300.
TEAC TN-300 - Main Features

  • Manual belt-drive turntable that plays 33/45rpm records
  • Features a heavy MDF plinth, available in three glossy finishes – Black, Red, Cherry and White
  • Built-in phono equalizer
  • USB digital output for transferring music from vinyl records to your Mac or PC.
  • Static-balanced straight-type tone arm
  • Supplied with high performance Audio-Technica AT-95E moving magnet (MM) cartridge
  • Oxidation-resistant gold-plated terminals
The TEAC TN-300 is, by any standards, a beautiful looking thing. Available in four deep, lustrous finishes – Black, Red, Cherry and White – its heavy MDF plinth is there for more than show… it also helps to effectively minimise unwanted resonances. Which means better sound quality.
On top of the plinth sits a substantial die-cast aluminium platter with a heavy rubber mat, driven by a high-torque DC motor and a durable Neoprene belt. Changing between 33/45 speeds is all done electronically, via a speed selector on top of the plinth.
A straight tone-arm (with manual arm-lifter) is employed for optimum tracking accuracy and comes pre-fitted with a top quality Audio-Technica AT-95E moving magnet cartridge (with replaceable stylus), widely acknowledged to be the best performer in its class.
Sadly, lots of modern hi-fi amplifiers lack the necessary phono stages to work with turntables so helpfully TEAC has built one into the TN-300. Owners can plug the deck into the CD, Auxiliary or line input of any stereo amplifier, hi-fi system, active speaker or smartphone speaker dock and it'll work just fine.  If you've already got a separate phono stage, perhaps built into your amplifier, the one in the TEAC can be bypassed at the flick of a switch.
Owners who want to archive their treasured vinyl to their PC or Mac (perhaps so they can also listen to it on the move via their smartphone) willalso  be pleased to discover there's a USB port on the rear of the TN300 that lets you send a digital output to your computer where it can be saved into your preferred music format.
Whether you want to digitise your vinyl or just listen to it straight out of the sleeve the TEAC TN-300 makes a singularly compelling case for itself. The toughest part is deciding which colour to go for…
