HEAR EVERY NUANCE AND NOTE - WIRELESSLY

The TN-280BT-A3 turntable offers extra versatility with a best-in-class Bluetooth® wireless connection. Simply connect the turntable to your wireless speakers of choice and drop the needle on your favorite records.

The TN-280BT-A3 also features a built-in Phono EQ amplifier for line output, allowing you to connect to almost any sound system regardless of the type of inputs.

The belt-drive motor on the TN-280BT-A3 reduces vibration for dynamic, more accurate sound than direct-drive turntables, while an aluminum die-cast platter and anti-skating system provide a solid foundation for great-sounding playback. The high-performance, upgradable MM cartridge AT3600L from Audio-Technica captures every detail, and the static-balanced straight tone-arm ensures clear sound. It’s all housed in a handsome case in black veneer.

CHOOSE YOUR CONNECTION

The TN-280BT-A3 delivers sound wirelessly via a built-in Bluetooth® transmitter, in addition to conventional RCA output in analog Line or Phono format. The pairing button is located at the right-front side of the cabinet, and the pairing indicator tells you the speakers/headphone is successfully connected.

LISTENING MADE EASY

Unlike other turntable units, the TN-280BT-A3 provides you an easy way to experience your vinyl via Bluetooth® wireless technology.

If you already have Bluetooth-enable speakers or headphones for your iPhone/Android phone, all you have to do is to install the TN-280BT-A3 in your room – no pricy hi-fi system and complicated wiring are needed. The connection is frustration-free - just press the BT pairing button when the Bluetooth® speakers/headphones are ready for the pairing, and once the connection is established, you don't need to do it again.

The TN-280BT-A3 also features a PHONO input via cable with an included RCA audio cable.

AUTHENTIC TWO-SPEED TURNTABLE

The high inertia aluminum die-cast platter is driven by a high torque DC motor for stable rotation for both 33-⅓ and 45 rpm. A soft felt mat further reduces vibration effectively. The high accuracy of the spindle is maintained by a polished Stainless steel Spindle and highly durable bronze spindle holder.
