Achieve near-direct-drive accuracy from a belt-drive system with the Teac TN-570-B Turntable. Its PRS3 technology is designed to detect and adjust for minute changes in the platter rotation speed for a more accurate listening experience. It has a 2-speed design for playback of 33 1/3 and 45 rpm records and features a static balance, S-shaped, height-adjustable tonearm. The TN-570-B features an MM-type amplifier with a switchable line/phono output. The USB port will allow you to output to your computer to save your records as digital files. The TN-570-B is Mac and Windows compatible, and RCA cables are included for instant connection to your hi-fi system.
Cogging-Free Belt Drive with Platter Rotation-Sensing Servo System (PRS3)
This drive system employs a PRS3 (Platter Rotation Speed Servo System) designed to detect insensible changes of the platter rotation speed by a contactless optical sensor settled at the spindle base and controls motor speed after calculation by an on-board microcomputer. It realizes a belt-drive mechanism with higher precision similar to that of a direct drive.
Cogging is a phenomenon in which the periodic attraction of the armature and rotor inside the motor is dependent on the rotation angle, resulting in a fine pulsing. For example, if you turn the axle of a motor with your fingers, you'll feel the rotation occurring in steps.
Electrical-Controlled Speed Selector
The speed selector employs an electronically-controlled speed-changing mechanism between 33 1/3 and 45 rpm, which does not require changing the pulley to another one with a different diameter.
Clear Acrylic Platter
The 16mm-thick full-size platter made of acrylic resin is designed to suppress unwanted sympathetic vibrations.
High-Precision Spindle and Anti-Static Carbon-Coated Base
By applying carbon coating to the spindle bearing, hardness is increased and electrification is controlled, providing enhanced static electricity performance.
Large Torque Motor with a Floating Structure
Employing a rubber cushion, a large torque motor is settled to float when attached to the chassis. This is designed to suppress the transmission of vibrations from the motor to the chassis.
A flat belt is employed to transmit energy to the motor drive. It is also designed to be quiet and provide excellent durability.
Chassis with Dual-Layer Structure
The cabinet employs artificial marble with high-density MDF. By combining different materials in a two-layer structure, this design abates their inherent resonant frequencies and realizes a clear sound, allowing the artists' voices, which are inscribed in the grooves of the record, to come out vividly. The weight of the artificial marble allows the turntable to realize a heaviness of about 19.9 lb. While it has a rigid structure, it is also designed to assure a high feedback margin.
Honeycomb-Shaped Bottom Case
The bottom cover employs a honeycomb pattern designed to prevent unwanted sympathetic vibrations.
The four machined-aluminum feet can have their heights adjusted independently, allowing the turntable to be set up on surfaces that are not flat. In addition, cushioned rubber is used between where the feet are installed and the body of the unit to suppress the feedback of sound to the cabinet.
The static-balanced S-shaped tonearm features enhanced flexibility. You can adjust the tone-arm height optimally for the shell and cartridge you are using. Also, PC-Triple C conductor cables are employed for the tone-arm cable so that the phono signal captured by the needle from the vinyl record is transmitted with augmented quality. PC-Triple C stands for "Pure Copper-Continuous Crystal Construction" and is designed to allow signals to flow smoothly by eliminating signal obstructions.
Built-In Phono-Equalizing Amplifier
Since a phono-equalizing amplifier is built in, you'll enjoy vinyl record sound by connecting the TN-570 directly to an existing amplifier with or without phono inputs. In addition, the phono-equalizing amplifier employs an OPA1602 SoundPlus Op-amp, which is designed to provide high-quality audio. The detailed analog signal transmitted from the cartridge is restored to the original audio signal without distortion or loss.
An MM-type cartridge is already installed at the factory.
Optical/USB Digital and Phono/Line Analog Outputs
With a high-precision A/D converter made by Cirrus Logic, the TN-570 delivers optical digital output up to 192kHz/24-bit PCM which is equivalent to Hi-Res Audio, while a USB output delivers up to 48kHz/16-bit digital audio to your computer. These two outputs allow you to save your vinyl collection digitally on a computer or CD-R/RW discs for car hi-fi or enjoy enhanced details of the sound by connecting to your favorite D/A converter unit. In the analog audio output part, a pair of gold-plated RCA pin jacks delivers either phono- or line-level output to fit your existing hi-fi system.
