debug carbon awards

The first Debut turntable, introduced in the late 1990s, was a revolution for the hi-fi industry. For the first time after the arrival of Compact Disc and the assumed demise of vinyl records, an analogue product re-emerged in the “mass market” – something all music lovers could afford.

The new DEBUT Carbon DC was designed to set new standards in this category for the coming decade – perfectly timed as analogue today is again a respected source, while the demand for good turntables is growing again!

The most obvious improvement is the inclusion of a CARBON TUBE for the tonearm, which increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance.

This material normally is extensively used in high-end tonearms, but – because of cost reasons – was never used in products at lower price levels. Together with other improvements like an increase in platter size and weight to realize even smoother rotation, the overall sound quality is greatly improved. The approved belt drive design offers low noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling (utilising TPE-damping) and ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator (like Speed Box) for ultimate speed stability without unwanted vibration.

TEAC TN-400BT TurntableAnalog Turntable with Bluetooth

Analog turntable with Bluetooth® aptX® transmitter that streams music from LP Records wirelessly

Visit our eCommerce site for TEAC TN-400BT Bluetooth Turntable

The TN-400BT is an belt drive analog turntable that also allows users to listen to LP records wirelessly via Bluetooth® headphones & speakers. A die-cast aluminium platter provides accurate rotational speed while an S-shaped static-balanced aluminum tone-arm provides accurate tracking. The built-in Phono EQ amplifier enables the TN-400BT to be connected to a conventional hi-fi amplifier or a micro hi-fi, while a universal-type headshell allows users to change cartridges with ease.

The base of the turntable and the main bearing are the same as the lower end TN-300. The main difference is the S-shaped tone arm and Bluetooth feature.

A built-in Bluetooth® transmitter also lets users listen to LP records wirelessly with high-quality audio (thanks to the the aptX® and AAC codecs). A USB output, meanwhile, enables users to digitally archive their records on a PC at 16-bit/48kHz resolution (equivalent to CD quality).

One of the stars of CES 2016 is the elegant, trendy and eco-friendly turntable by House of Marley – the “Stir It Up” Turntable. If you’ve not heard of House of Marley before – yes, it is referring to the same Bob Marley you already know about, rolling with the brand to promote “good living and shared experiences”.

This is a compact record player with nice natural bamboo plinth. The aluminum platter is 11-inch, slightly smaller than full-size 12-inch platter. We like the fact that is it less bulky than many turntables in the market. It is space saving and looks good no matter where you put it.

A lot of attention and passion has been poured in to design this turntable. It is not one of those super OEM decks.

House of Marley also utilized Regrind™ and Rewind™, which are composed of hemp, organic cotton and recycled plastic. The base below the bamboo plinth has a fabric-wrapped finish. It is tastefully done, very sleek indeed.

It includes standard features for model turntables, such as ability to play 33 & 45rpm, USB output, counter weight and anti-skating adjustment, tonearm level, RCA output, built-in switchable phono pre-amp, and MM cartridge. To be specific, the cartridge used is Audio Technica AT91/BL. We estimate it weights around 3.5kg. This weight, together with the anti vibration legs, helps to reduce external vibration. That means better sound than many ultra-light, plasticky enter-level turntables.

Although the headshell is not detachable, it is a standard mount. This make it possible to upgrade the stock cartridge to something better, like the well-known and highly praised Audio Technica AT95e. It has a built-in 3.5mm jack headphone output in front. For those of you who likes to listen to vinyl music on earphones or headphones, you can just plug and play. The built-in headphone amplifier does the job, no additional components needed. It is a bit odd because the volume is not adjustable. Well, we suppose you can enhanced it with external mini amplifier, so not a problem.

I’ll be damned if I don’t mention how nice is the product packaging. Now wrapping paper needed if you get this as a gift!!

at-lp5-review
The landmark Audio-Technica AT-LP5 turntable  is proof positive that an affordable turntable can deliver the  performance, design and reliability expected of high-fidelity models. A perfect balance of technology and design, the sleek contemporary lines of the AT-LP5 turntable grace any room in the home, while delivering performance features born out of Audio-Technica’s rich analog heritage.

The direct-drive turntable with its precision-engineered cast aluminium record platter, fitted with the exclusive high-performance AT95EX Dual Moving Magnet cartridge, itself mounted on an AT-HS10 lightweight headshell, proves the LP5 doesn’t compromise when it comes to materials and components.

The LP5’s J-shaped tonearm, which helps minimise tracking errors, is based on original Audio-Technica designs from the 1960s and 70s. 33 1/3rd & 45 RPM speeds, phono or line stereo outputs with separate grounding, a low-resonance damped & weighted chassis structure, the heavy 5mm thick rubber-composite platter mat and sleek matte black paint finish create a comprehensive package.

The AT-LP5 offers a built-in switchable phono/line pre-amplifier that provides connection to a stereo system equipped with either phono or line-level inputs. The AT-LP5 also includes Audacity recording software for MAC or PC, USB cable and an RCA / RCA stereo adapter cable, allowing direct connection to your computer to transfer your classic LP collection to digital files using its USB output. 

With great attention paid to the complete analog signal path, subtle features such as the gold-plated  u-shaped connections of the HS10 headshell, the choice of using both the internal or an external phono pre-amplifier, and a stable high-rated internal mains power supply with enhanced grounding, the audio reproduction credentials of the LP5 are clear for all to see.

This turntable received 5-star rating by What HiFi magazine. Read about it here – http://www.whathifi.com/audio-technica/lp5/review
