TEAC TN4DSEB Direct Drive Turntable - Piano Black

Product Descriptions

TEAC TN4DSEB Direct Drive Turntable - Piano Black

A traditional turntable with knife-edge tonearm bearings and a new ultra-stable direct-drive motor

With a sleek, low-profile design made possible by the use of a newly created brushless DC servo motor, the TN4DSEB is a direct-drive, analogue turntable.

Our updated brushless DC motor (with feedback control technology) eliminates cogging* while achieving crystal-locked speed stability and smoother spinning. In contrast to the plinths of the majority of other direct drive turntables, we were able to create a very sleek and attractive plinth thanks to this low-profile motor. The new tonearm on the TN4DSEB has pivot-point bearings with a knife-edge design that were created in partnership with SAEC Corporation, a renowned, high-end tonearm manufacturer. As a result, tonearms with conventional bearings are unable to match the perceptive, high-resolution sound quality that is produced.

It is paired with a PHONO EQ amplifier that was thoughtfully created, enabling you to immediately connect the turntable to the line-level inputs of your current hi-fi system. The finest musical detail is communicated using a premium NJM8080 op-amp that New Japan Radio Corporation has created for hi-fi applications. Additionally, you may digitally archive your vinyl collection using your PC or Mac thanks to a USB connector on the back panel. The TN4DSEB is equipped with an acclaimed Oyster MM cartridge from SUMIKO, a storied American cartridge manufacturer, to extract the music from your vinyl. The cartridge, which is renowned for its innate musicality, arrives pre-installed on the headshell at the factory, enabling almost "plug and play" operation. Users can experiment with different cartridges to change the sound quality if they so choose because the S-shaped tonearm enables fast cartridge/headshell swaps.

Due to its sleek and fashionable appearance, the TN4DSEB analogue turntable produces extremely accurate rotational speeds and is quite recognisable for a direct-drive design.

What is Cogging?

A phenomenon known as cogging occurs when the periodic attraction between the armature and rotor inside the motor is influenced by the rotation angle, producing a tiny pulse. A motor's axle, for instance, rotates incrementally when you turn it with your fingers. Cogging is the term for this occurrence. A motor must have a significant number of poles, intricate circuitry, and a mechanism to produce smooth rotation in order to completely remove cogging on a direct-drive turntable. The resultant turntables are so big because the majority of direct-drive turntable systems are somewhat big.

Newly Built Motor Designed Exclusively For Direct-Drive Turntables

The TN4DSEB utilises a sleek, brushless DC motor that provides crystal-locked speed precision and is controlled by a computer-controlled feedback circuit to achieve minimal wow and flutter levels for a direct drive turntable, especially one with such a fashionable, low-profile design.

Pivot-Point, Knife-Edge Tonearm Bearings

The tonearm for the TN4DSEB is made in partnership with the renowned, high-end tonearm manufacturer SAEC Corporation and features a knife-edge pivot-point bearing. Contrary to tonearms with traditional bearings, any slight vertical movements this tonearm experiences actually aid in producing a sound that is more dynamic and has superb resolution. The universal headshell fitting used by the S-shaped tonearm enables users to quickly and simply swap cartridges and headshells and it supports a variety of cartridge weights (from 14 to 23g/0.5 to 0.8 oz).

Adjustment For Stylus Pressure And Precision Anti-Skating

As one might assume, the tonearm has an anti-skating mechanism and a counterweight for finely adjusting stylus pressure.

SUMIKO's Pre-Installed Oyster Cartridge

The TN4DSEB includes a reputable Oyster MM cartridge made by SUMIKO, a legendary American cartridge manufacturer. The Oyster cartridge gives a strong but perceptive performance regardless of the genre of music.

PHONO EQ Amplifier With MM Cartridge Compatibility Built-In

The turntable can be connected directly to the line-level inputs of your current hi-fi system thanks to the TN4DSEB's built-in PHONO EQ amplifier. New Japan Radio Corporation's NJM8080 IC is used as an op-amp to boost the weak signals picked up by the cartridge to LINE level strength without sacrificing quality.

Plate Made Of Die-Cast Aluminium

The high inertia, die-cast aluminium platter works in tandem with the newly created motor to improve speed stability.

USB Digital Output

You can record or archive your vinyl using a high-quality, digital audio format by connecting the back panel's USB connector to your PC or Mac. Once you've converted your vinyl records to digital files, it's easy to listen to them on the go with a smartphone or portable audio player or in your car (by burning the files to a CD-R or moving them to a memory card or stick). Additionally, to guarantee flawless signal transfer, gold-plated PHONO/LINE output terminals are used to stop analogue audio signals from oxidizing and losing quality.

Feet With Superior Shock Absorption And Insulation

The insulating feet are attached to the high-density MDF plinth with screws and consist of a machined aluminium shell covered with a rubber cushion. The TN4DOB is particularly resistant to auditory feedback due to their outstanding shock absorption qualities.

Turntable With Two Speeds: 33-1/3 And 45 Rpm

LP and EP records can be played on the TN4DSEB at 33-1/3 and 45 rpm. Even the start-up/speed selection rotary control, made of machined aluminium, demonstrates our dedication to high-quality engineering.
