A Unique Tie-Dye Color Design

The eye-catching appearance of the TN-420-TD is achieved through a modern hydro-graphics printing process and adds a groovy touch to any music room. And just below this colorful is a high density MDF cabinet designed to minimize unwanted resonance during playback.

Aluminum Belt-Drive Turntable

The high inertia aluminum die-cast platter is driven by a high-torque DC motor with durable Neoprene rubber belt to achieve stable rotation. In addtition, highly accurate rotation of this platter is maintained by a polished spindle (machined from a stainless steel block) and a durable bronze spindle holder.

MM-Type Cartridge Phono Equalizer Amplifier

Enjoy vinyl playback with any amplifier. The TN-420-TD supports both both Phono and Line output, and allows you to enjoy your favorite albums on virtually any music system.

Built-In USB Digital Output and Analog Phono/Line Output

An on-board analog-to-digital converter from Texas Instruments allows you to transfer music via USB to your PC and to create CD-quality backups of your favotire albums. In addition, a pair of gold-plated RCA connectors are employed for reliable connection to either the Line or Phono inputs of your receveiver and amplifier.

Corrosion-Resistant Gold-Plated Terminals

To ensure years of reliable performance, gold-plated terminals on the head shell connectors prevent oxidation over time. 

Static-Balanced S-Shaped Tonearm

Due to increased mass, an S-shaped tonearm is employed for high tracking accuracy. Coupled with an adjustable anti-skating mechanism, the TN-420-TD will help you to get up and rocking in no time.
