2016-01-06 - TEAC TN-550 and TN-570 Provide No-Compromise Vinyl Playback

Premium-quality Turntables Solidified with Layered Cultured Marble

CES Show Booth CP-1, Las Vegas, NV (January 6, 2016): TEAC has launched two new flagship turntables, the TN-550 and TN-570. The DC motor with special servo system (PRS3*1 ) is belt-driven to a clear acrylic platter for minimal speed deviation. The tone arm features anti-skating, weight control, and “PC-TripleC” pure copper wiring by SAEC Corporation. An audio-technica AT-100E cartridge is included (MM type).


Each of the two-speed, belt-driven turntables rest on a resonance-reducing Cultured Marble Stone base, layered on MDF for a solid playback surface. The stylish gloss black marble not only commands the attention of anyone in the room, it reduces vibrations for unequalled sound quality.

Added features of the TN-570 include an optical and USB digital out, the former supporting 192kHz/24-bit resolution for conecting with high-resolution compatible D/A converter, and also turntables include phono and line-level outputs (switchable) on gold-plated connectors.
