Overview: The Marantz TT-42P is a fully automatic, high
quality turntable with DC servo belt-drive, low-coloration tone arm, built-in
transparent dust cover. The TT-42P is the ideal answer to your need for a high
performance source component for analog records.
Built-in Phono Preamp: Because many audio receivers do not feature a
dedicated phono input, the TT-42P comes with a built-in phono input circuitry.
This allows you to plug the TT-42P into any line level audio input (the same
type of input you would use for a compact disc player) for easy, plug-and-play
enjoyment of your vinyl collection.
Fully Automatic: The Marantz TT-42P turntable features full automatic
operation for easy & comfortable operation that protects the stylus from damage.
The turntable offers automatic start, plus automatic tone-arm return & stop.
Low Noise DC Servo Motor: The Marantz TT-42P full automatic turntable
employs a DC Servo motor belt-drive system (with rubber belt & metal bearings) to ensure accurate speed &
rumble-free sound reproduction.
33-1/3 & 45 RPM: The TT-42P offers two speed selection playback in both
33 1/3 & 45 rpm (adapter included).
MM Cartridge: The Marantz turntable's MM cartridge is compatible with
a vast majority of the amplifiers & receivers.
Note: This turntable offers a pre-adjusted/pre-set
counterweight that is designed to work with the included MM cartridge. The
counterweight cannot be adjusted as it is fixed into position, so swapping out
the cartridge for a different one, or fine tuning using a force gauge is not
