About the TEAC TN-350
Play your vinyl, and digitize it, too
Play your vinyl, and digitize it, too
I love my vinyl, but I can't exactly play it in the car, or can I? TEAC's TN-350 turntable features a dedicated USB output that lets you digitize your albums. Once you save your favorite classic grooves to your hard drive, they're ready to go with you on your smartphone or other portable listening device.
The turntable itself is beautiful to look at, with a gorgeous wood finish, precision-milled aluminum controls, and a graceful S-shaped tonearm. On the practical side, the built-in switchable phono preamp allows you to connect directly to just about any amplifier or receiver.
The TEAC TN-350 has a built-in phono preamp and a USB output so you can digitize your collection.
Hear music, not noise
It's truly impressive how much clever engineering goes into something so pretty to look at. Under the turntable's polished exterior is a heavy MDF base designed to resist external vibration. Its dense die-cast aluminum platter comes with a felt mat to protect your vinyl. Its variable-speed belt-drive system isolates motor vibration, and lets you play 33-1/3 and 45 rpm discs. The curved aluminum tonearm — equipped with an Audio-Technica AT95E moving-magnet cartridge — ensures super-accurate tracking and satisfying, rich tonal accuracy.
Enjoy soulful vinyl sound with minimal setup
You want to spend as little time possible setting up your system so you can get to the joy of listening. That's why the TN-350 comes out of the box virtually ready to play. Its pre-matched, factory-mounted phono cartridge and tonearm take the guesswork out of installation, and give you optimized sound quality with minimal effort. A few simple steps to dial in key settings like tracking force and anti-skating are all it takes to get this 'table primed and ready to go.

More details on the TEAC TN-350
2-Speed Belt Drive Turntable: The TEAC TN-350 turntable is designed for high quality playback of both LP and EP records (33-13 & 45 RPM). The TN-350's high-inertia aluminum die-cast platter is driven by a high torque DC motor via a Neoprene rubber belt that absorbs vibration to provide accurate and consistent rotation speed, while a combination of the polished spindle precisely machined from a stainless steel block and the durable bronze spindle holder maintains its accuracy for an extended period of time.
S-Shaped Tonearm: In addition to the beautifully polished aluminum die-cast platter which provides consistent speed control, the TN-350 turntable also incorporates an S-shaped tonearm that provides rock solid tracking. The S-shaped tone arm, coupled to an easily adjustable anti-skating mechanism, provides increased mass for more accurate tracking
Audio-Technica AT95E MM Cartridge: With a reputation for highly accurate reading and incredible sound reproduction the TN-350 comes complete with a AT95E VM-type MM cartridge. You will need to install the cartridge to the tonearm.

Gold-Plated Terminals: A pair of gold-plated RCA connectors are employed for reliable, durable connection to your receiver's Line Level or Phono input. Gold-plated terminals on the headshell connectors prevent oxidation of the head shell connectors and help to ensure years of reliable performance and to deliver stunning audio fidelity.
