The TN-400BT-SE is an analog turntable with Bluetooth® built-in so you can enjoy your favorites using wireless headphones & speakers. A die-cast aluminum 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-SE 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.

A high-quality, Japanese-made moving magnet-type cartridge comes pre-installed so you can start enjoying your records immediately.

Aluminum Die-Cast Platter with 3-Speed Belt-Drive

A die-cast, high-inertia aluminum platter is driven by a high-torque DC motor via a durable rubber flat-belt, giving immensely stable playback at 33-⅓, 45 and 78 rpm speeds.

New low-resistance spindle

A precisely-machined stainless steel spindle and durable brass bearing maintain accurate rotational speed, thanks to reduced friction.

Built-in Phono EQ amplifier

The TN-400BT-SE has an onboard Phono EQ amplifier that supports MM-type cartridges, allowing the deck to be connected to conventional amplifiers/microsystems that lack a dedicated turntable input. The Phono EQ amplifier employs a hi-fi quality NJM8080 op-amp chip (designed by JRC) which amplifies the tiny audio signal from the stylus with the minimum of distortion.

S-shaped static-balanced tone-arm

The S-shaped, static-balanced aluminum tone-arm is equipped with a counterweight and anti-skating mechanism that allow an exact setting of balance as well as tracking pressure, ensuring accurate tracking during playback. A tone-arm lifter is also fitted for smooth lowering of the tone-arm onto records.
The tone-arm takes universal-type headshells so users can change cartridges with relative ease. In order to reduce signal losses between the tone-arm and the headshell, gold-plated contact points are employed, to help deliver an uncorrupted audio signal.

Bluetooth® wireless audio streaming with Qualcomm® aptX™ codec

The TN-400BT-SE's Bluetooth® wireless transmission system supports the higher quality Qualcomm® aptX™ and AAC codecs, as well as the conventional SBC codec. This means that even if users don't have a hi-fi system, you can still enjoy truly high-quality vinyl replay via Bluetooth®-equipped headphones or speakers. Connecting the TN-400BT-SE to Bluetooth® headphones or speakers is achieved very simply, at the touch of a button. A single-function pairing key and an associated LED indicator provide simple and clear confirmation of the connection status.

Beautifully detailed

The TN-400BT-SE brings elegance to the process of playing a record. The machined aluminum operation knobs ooze quality while the aluminum feet are attached to high-density MDF chassis via shock-absorbing rubber, providing high feedback resistance.
