TEAC The TN-100 entry-level turntable 


Affordable turntable for vinyl enthusiasts

TEAC’s TN-100 brings the classic sound of vinyl to a price anyone can afford. Designed for music enthusiasts, the belt-drive motor ensures a cleaner sound than direct-drive DJ players. The output is switchable between phono out, for use with a preamp, and line out with phono EQ for use with powered monitors or receivers. An additional USB output allows vinyl collections to be recorded to Mac or PC computers.

Unlike many budget turntables, the TN-100 has a wooden body to dampen vibrations and provide cleaner, richer sound. The three-speed, auto-return turntable is available in either a flat black or cherry finish.

For music fans who have been been collecting records for decades or those just starting out, TEAC’s TN-100 delivers the true sound of classic records.
