Product Information

A new, high-performance standard for belt-drive analog turntables

The TN-3B-SE is a stylish, sleek-looking belt-driven turntable with a built-in MM-type PHONO EQ amplifier. It delivers natural and well-balanced sound quality and is quick and easy to set up and start enjoying. TEAC believes it sets a new standard that will satisfy the needs of both audiophiles and ardent record collectors.


  • 2-speed, belt-drive turntable offering 33-1/3 and 45 rpm speeds
  • Knife-edge, pivot-point tonearm designed by high-end tonearm manufacturer SAEC
  • Static-balanced, S-shaped tone-arm with pre-installed audio-technica AT-VM95E MM cartridge
  • Die-cast aluminum platter
  • PHONO/LINE analog outputs (switchable)
  • Built-in PHONO EQ amplifier, compatible with MM-type cartridges
  • Hi-fi grade NJM8080 op-amp used in PHONO EQ stage

Knife-edge, pivot-point tone-arm bearings

The TN-3B-SE's tone-arm from SAEC employs a knife-edge, pivot-point bearing. Unlike the case for tonearms with conventional bearings, any fine vertical movements that take place in this tone-arm actually help in delivering a more dynamic sound with excellent resolution. The S-shaped tone-arm also employs a universal head-shell fitting, allowing users to quickly and easily swap cartridges/head-shells, and supports a wide range of cartridge weights (from 14 - 23g / 0.5 - 0.8 oz.).

Precision anti-skating and stylus-pressure adjustment

The static-balanced, S-shape tone-arm is equipped with a counterweight for precise stylus-pressure adjustment, as well as an anti-skating mechanism for accurate tracking force adjustment, allowing the cartridge to accurately play any quality vinyl disc.

Pre-installed VM-series cartridge

A VM-type cartridge the AT-VM95E manufactured by audio-Technica with an elliptical-shaped stylus tip comes pre-installed on the head-shell for convenience. After you’ve opened the box, set up the platter, and mounted the head-shell on the tonearm, you'll be ready to enjoy your records.

Built-in MM-type phono EQ amplifier

The TN-3B-SE incorporates an MM-type phono EQ amplifier, allowing you to connect the turntable to a conventional amplifier/hi-fi system that lacks a PHONO input. A low distortion, hi-fi-grade op-amp, the NJM8080, is employed to boost the low-level signals from the phono cartridge up to LINE level.

External belt-drive with an aluminum die-cast platter

A belt-drive arrangement is employed in order to minimize any motor cogging effects by driving the outer rim of the platter (which has a larger diameter, mass, and surface area).

Luxurious, multi-layer lacquer paint finish

All internal components are mounted on a robust and high-density MDF plinth for rigidity and vibration-deadening. Thanks to its sleek and stylish design, the TN-3B-SE looks at home in most domestic environments, creating the perfect setting for listening to vinyl records.

2-speed turntable for 33-1/3 and 45 rpm

The TN-3B-SE supports 33-1/3 and 45 rpm for LP and EP records. Our insistence on quality engineering can even be seen in the construction of the rotary control for start-up/speed selection, formed of machined aluminum.

Insulating feet with excellent shock absorption

The insulating feet comprise a machined aluminum shell, topped with a rubber cushion that is fixed to the high-density MDF plinth. Thanks to their excellent shock absorption characteristics, the TN-3B-SE is very resistant to acoustic feedback.

Honeycomb patterned bottom panel

In order to achieve a sleek cabinet design without compromising rigidity, the bottom panel is imprinted with a honeycomb pattern that minimizes unwanted vibrations.
