TEAC Adds Bluetooth Capability to Turntable Range

TEAC has added a new model to its range of analogue turntables with the launch of the TN-400BT, the first standalone TEAC turntable with Bluetooth capability.

Available in five beautiful finishes, the TN-400BT allows users to simplify their music playback system by wirelessly streaming their records, in high-quality, to Bluetooth-enabled headphones and speakers. 
An evolution of TEAC’s best-selling TN-300 turntable, the TN-400BT also features an onboard phono EQ amplifier (designed to support moving magnet cartridges such as the Audio-Technica AT-95E that’s supplied), provides a simple way to connect the turntable to hi-fi amplifiers and audio systems that lack turntable inputs.  A new subsonic filter prevents warped records from generating poor quality, uncontrolled low bass. The phono stage also has a USB-output (16-bit/48kHz) for digital archiving onto a PC.
The turntable is equipped with the higher quality aptX and AAC codecs so, when partnered with compatible Bluetooth aptX-equipped headphones and speakers, owners can enjoy a higher level of audio fidelity (a LED indicator lets you know when the turntable is connected).
To reduce mechanical friction a new low-resistance spindle has also been developed which, used together with a brass bearing and the precision die-cast aluminium platter, helps maintain a stable rotational speed.
The static S-shaped tonearm ensures accurate tracking during playback and features a universal-type headshell, allowing easy and quick cartridge changes. All three turntable speeds – including 78rpm – are supported and switching between them is as simple as turning a knob.
