Far Out!

Released on the 50th anniversary of San Francisco’s Summer of Love, the TEAC TN-420 tie-dye turntable has a groovy look that’s sure to be a huge hit in any music room. But don’t be fooled by its colorful, laid-back finish—beneath the tie-dye, this belt-driven two-speed turntable with an S-shaped tonearm has all the great features an audiophile could want. The high-density MDF base and heavyweight aluminum die-cast platter deliver excellent resonance rejection, speed control, and fidelity. Known for its accuracy, clarity, and detail, the Audio-Technica MM-type cartridge has a built-in phono equalizer amplifier. The anti-skating system prevents tracking errors, while the USB digital output makes it easy to archive your vinyl collection. Finally, switchable phono and line-level outputs allow you to connect to virtually any audio system.

Note: This drop is limited to 100 units.
