Teac TN-420 Belt-Driven Turntable with S-Shaped Tonearm

What better way to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love than with the certifiably far-out TN-420 turntable?

Beneath the groovy exterior, this 2-speed turntable combines a high density MDF base with an expertly machined aluminum platter to deliver incredible resonance rejection, speed control and audio fidelity. And for easy connection to virtually any audio system, the TN-420 features switchable Phono / Line level outputs on RCA connectors and a digital output on USB for easy connection to a Mac or PC for playback and archiving of your favorite LPs.

A unique Tie-Dye color design

The eye-catching appearance of the TN-420-TD is achieved through a modern hydro-graphics printing process and adds a groovy touch to any music room. And just below this colorful is a high density MDF cabinet designed to minimize unwanted resonance during playback.

Aluminum belt-drive turntable

In addtition, highly accurate rotation of this platter is maintained by a polished spindle (machined from a stainless steel block) and a durable bronze spindle holder.
