TEAC announces new belt-drive turntable TN-3B-SE with a knife-edge tone-arm bearings


TEAC Corporation (TOKYO:6803) will release a new belt-drive analog turntable TN-3B-SE.  

The TN-3B-SE is a stylish, sleek-looking belt-driven turntable with a built-in MM-type PHONO EQ amplifier.  It employs a new tonearm with knife-edge, pivot-point bearings, collaborated with SAEC, the high-end tonearm manufacturer, for superlative stability and resolution. The belt-drive mechanism, meanwhile, helps mitigate any unwanted cogging effects (ie fine pulsing) from the operation of the motor, to ensure a precise and smooth platter rotation. The TN-3B-SE also employs a VM-type cartridge the AT-VM95E manufactured by audio-technica and a high-precision NJM8080 op-amp in its in-built Phono EQ amplifier, allowing the user to enjoy the sound of their vinyl records with low distortion and in high quality.

The TN-3B-SE delivers a natural and well-balanced sound quality and is quick and easy to set up and start enjoying. We believe it sets a new standard that will satisfy the needs of both audiophiles and ardent record collectors.
