2-Speed Direct-Drive Turntable

review this turntable add a review



The TN-400 turntable represents the finest state of the art in turntable design, with several unique features developed to assure the finest possible performance.

The incredible TEAC DC servomotor was designed for reduced wow and flutter by incorporating 20-pole rotor magnet / 60-slot stator cores, a 3-phase governing system, and assuring a highly regulated DC voltage to the motor.

Direct contact between the motor and the massive die-cast aluminium platter practically eliminates any fluctuations in the motor.

The platter of the TN400 is dynamically balanced at TEACs factory, also contributing to the very undetectable 0.03% wow and flutter characteristic.
