Incredible Precision, High-End Analog Sound, Stupendous Build Quality: TEAC TN-550 Turntable Features PRS3 Automatic Speed Rotation Adjustment System, S-Shaped Tonearm, audio-technica Cartridge, Quiet Performance

The high-performance, cogging-free TEAC TN-550 belt-drive turntable comes with two distinctive features you won't find elsewhere. Designed by TEAC, a Platter Rotation Speed Servo System (PRS3) acts an automatic rotation adjustment system and ensures precision-based speed. Any speed changes are immediately detected by a contactless optical sensor at the spindle base and corrected after an on-board microcomputer makes the necessary calculations. Equally innovative, TN-550's universal headshell and static-balanced, height-adjustable S-shaped tonearm utilizes PC-Triple C conductor cables in their cabling. Also known as Pure Copper-Continuous Crystal Construction, this Japan-made high-conductivity enhancement enhances signal flow by eliminating obstructions. The result: Smoother, more detailed musical reproduction from your vinyl. These features not only serve the sound of your LPs but give TN-550 the sought-after accuracy touted by many direct-drive ‘tables. Plus, TN-550 offers much more.

Equipped with a clear 16mm-thick acrylic platter, high-precision spindle with anti-static carbon-coated base, large torque motor with floating structure, and dual-layer MDF chassis, TN-550 operates with extreme quiet and functions to suppress unwanted resonance. The marble compound not only looks stellar but serves to give the ‘table a solid weight while simultaneously allowing it to keep a slim, stylish form. A honeycomb-shaped bottom case prevents further vibrations, as do height-adjustable machined-aluminum feet. Want simplicity? An electrical-controlled speed selector lets you choose between 33.3 and 45RPM speeds without having to change the pulley. An anti-skate mechanism, audio-technica MM cartridge, machined aluminum EP adapter, and detachable dust cover complete this stellar ‘table. Music Direct's Money-Back Guarantee does the rest.
