A quality turntable at an affordable price
The TEAC TN-180BT-A3 is a great option for anyone getting back into vinyl listening or starting a record collection for the first time. Its pre-matched, factory-mounted phono cartridge and tonearm take the guesswork out of installation, and a built-in phono preamp allows you to make a wired connection to just about any amplifier or receiver.
For added convenience, built-in Bluetooth lets you stream from the 'table to compatible speakers or headphones for wire-free listening. And the tonearm automatically lifts and returns to rest at the end of a record, so you don't have to get up and do it manually.

3-Speed Belt Drive Turntable: The TEAC TN-180BT-A3 is a belt-drive turntable that is powered by a high torque DC motor. The turntable supports 33-1/3, 45 (adapter included), and 78 (compatible cartridge/stylus sold separately) RPM speeds.
Note: The groove of a 78 RPM record is 3 to 4 times wider than typical 33-1/3 or 45 RPM record, so it might damage the stylus and cause noise when you play back the record with pre-installed cartridge/stylus. You will need a 78 RPM compatible cartridge (sold separately - not available at Crutchfield). *Crutchfield does not offer a cartridge that will work with this turntable's fixed preset tracking force.
High-Density MDF: Crafted from high-density MDF, the plinth (base) of the TN-180BT-A3 has been designed to minimize unwanted vibration and resonance. The turntable's heavy MDF cabinet minimizes vibrations and resonance for clearer sound when you playback your vinyl collection. The turntable also comes with a 11.5" (29cm) plastic platter and rubber mat.
Semi-Automatic Operation: At the end of the record playback, the TN-180BT-A3 turntable automatically lifts the tonearm, stops rotation of the record, and returns the tonearm to the tonearm rest. You can also stop record playback manually and return the tonearm to the tonearm rest manually.
Note: The tonearm may not return to the tonearm holder automatically depending on the record. In that case, move the tonearem back to the tonearm rest manually.
Audio-Technica AT3600L Cartridge: An Audio-Technica AT3600L MM (moving magnet) cartridge is pre-installed to the turntable's 7.875" (200mm) straight, static-balanced tonearm at the factory. The AT3600L delivers premium audio quality and lets you enjoy every sonic detail of your favorite vinyl records.
Switchable Phono MM Preamp: The TEAC TN-180BT-A3 features a built-in Phono MM preamp that allows you to connect the turntable to a line-level or Phono MM input of your AV receiver, integrated amplifier, or powered speakers. Turn the built-in Phono preamp "On" to connect the turntable to a line-level input of your receiver or amplifier. Turn the built-in Phono preamp "Thru" to connect the turntable to a Phono input of your receiver or amplifier.
Stereo RCA Outputs: The TEAC TN-180BT-A3 turntable is outfitted with a set of stereo RCA outputs to connect to your AV receiver, integrated amplifier, or powered speakers.
Bluetooth Transmitter: In addition to Phono or Line connectivity, the TN-180BT-A3 is able to deliver sound wirelessly via its built-in Bluetooth transmitter (version 4.0) to a Bluetooth-enabled AV receiver, powered speaker, or set of headphones (all sold separately). The pairing button is located next to the tone-arm and illuminates when your Bluetooth-enabled receiver, speaker, or headphones is successfully connected. The turntable has a wireless range of approximately 33'.
Note: Only one Bluetooth-enabled receiver, speaker, or set of headphones can be paired, connected, and used for playback at a time.
Dust Cover: The TEAC TN-180BT-A3 comes with a detachable, hinged dust cover to protect the turntable and your vinyl records from dust and debris.

Had problems with the First one. But Crutchfield made it good and sent me another one. So far Turntable is working Great and I'm very happy with the speed Crutchfield took care of everything. Now if I can just get the return label? Hopefully it will be here soon.
