TEAC-TN-420-pic-1How about this for a ‘groovy’ turntable. Fifty years after the summer of love, TEAC is introducing a tie-die turntable that’s sure to brighten up a drizzly autumn day. 

The 2-speed (33 and 45 RPM) turntable player combines high density MDF base with a machined aluminium platter to deliver, TEAC claims, incredible resonance rejection, speed control and, most importantly, audio fidelity.

The eye-catching appearance of the TN-420 is achieved through a modern hydro-graphics printing process while the high inertia aluminium die-cast platter is driven by a high-torque DC motor with a durable Neoprene rubber belt to achieve stable rotation.

In addition, highly accurate rotation of the platter is maintained by a polished spindle (machined from a stainless steel block) contained within a durable bronze spindle holder.

Other features include switchable Phono/Line level outputs on RCA (phono) connectors as well as a digital output (via USB) for easy connection to a Mac or PC for playback and/or archiving favourite LPs.

The TEAC TN-420 is available now for £329.  For further product/stockist/trade info see www.teac-audio.eu
