Product Information

Crystal-Clear Sound

The TN-4D-SE is a direct-drive, analog turntable with an elegant, low-profile design, made possible by the use of a newly-developed brushless DC servo motor.


  • Direct-drive analog turntable
  • Crystal-locked speed stability, thanks to a new brushless DC motor with feedback control
  • Die-cast aluminum platter
  • Knife-edge, pivot-point tonearm bearings, designed by high-end tonearm manufacturer SAEC
  • Multi-layer Piano Black or natural Walnut veneer finish
  • Built-in PHONO EQ amplifier for high-quality sound (PHONO/LINE switchable)
  • 2-speed drive for 33-1/3 and 45 rpm
  • Gold-plated output connectors to resist oxidation
  • Acclaimed Oyster MM cartridge by SUMIKO

A sleek motor developed exclusively for direct-drive turntables

The TN-4D-SE uses a sleek, brushless DC motor, offering crystal-locked speed accuracy, regulated by a computer-controlled feedback circuit and achieving low wow-and-flutter levels for a direct drive turntable, especially one with such a stylish, low-profile design.

Knife-edge, pivot-point tone-arm bearings

The TN-4D-SE's tonearm employs a knife-edge, pivot-point bearing. Unlike the case for tonearms with conventional bearings, any fine vertical movements encountered by this tonearm actually help in delivering a more dynamic sound with excellent resolution. The S-shaped tonearm also employs a universal headshell fitting, allowing users to quickly and easily swap cartridges/headshells, and supports a wide range of cartridge weights (from 14 - 23g / 0.5 - 0.8 oz.)

Precision anti-skating and stylus-pressure adjustment

As you might expect, the tonearm is equipped with a counterweight, for precise stylus-pressure adjustment, and an anti-skating mechanism.

Pre-installed Oyster cartridge by SUMIKO

The TN-4D-SE comes with a well-regarded Oyster MM cartridge from SUMIKO – a legendary American cartridge manufacturer. The Oyster cartridge delivers a powerful soundstage, regardless of what music you pick.

Built-in PHONO EQ amplifier supporting MM cartridges

The TN-4D-SE comes with a built-in PHONO EQ amplifier that allows you to directly connect the turntable to the line-level inputs of your existing hi-fi system. The NJM8080 IC from New Japan Radio Corporation is employed for op-amp duties, bringing up the level of the tiny signals received via the cartridge up to LINE level strength without any loss of quality.

Die-cast aluminum platter

In conjunction with the newly-developed motor, the high inertia, die-cast aluminum platter helps to achieve better speed stability.

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-4D is very resistant to acoustic feedback.

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

The TN-4D-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.
