Is this different than the TN-300? What is the TN-300SE? I noticed that it only offered in two colors now (according to the Teac website)....so is this a new and updated version of the original TN-300?

Anybody have any ideas?

I read that this is the same as the 300 except for cosmetically (matte vs gloss finish & not all the same colors).


Price now down to $147.11. I updated the OP, but price seems to be skittish.

So as someone who wants to buy an excellent turntable, should I buy this one, or are there others that I should buy instead even if they cost more? I've been told that to have a decent set-up I would spend $200. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

I've always thought direct drive were supposed to be better than belt - no?

This is an absolute steal under $150 and is an excellent entry level turntable. When the 300 series came out it was $399. This is a much better turntable than the price indicates and is comparable to more expensive turntables. Great value here. It will sound good as is but use the money you saved here to upgrade the cartridge and get a standalone phono stage amp and you can get a really great sound out of it. I know because I own the TN-300 as a backup to a more expensive turntable and it sounds great with the upgrades mentioned.

Actually many audiophile types of people prefer belt drive. I own both types and they are both capable of excellent performance.

Honestly don't quite understand what I'm talking about, but I thought the belt being stretchable make it more susceptible to inconsistent play or something I've heard referred to as "wow and flutter." Guess I need to research this stuff before I convert my mother's album collection to digital. Thank for the reply - repped.

Newbie question. When the needle gets to the end of the record, what happens? Also, is there a way to stack 10 or so 45's and have them play consecutive? Looking to get back into records, but unsure of models and brands.

I have heard that there have been some issues with quality control on the TN-300. Wonder if this carries over to the TN-300SE?

I have been researching turntables for months...this seems like a good deal.

I cannot decide which TT to buy. I keep shooting low, then I say "well I will spend a little more and get this!" and next think you know I am looking at a $1k Rega Planar 3...

I should just bite the bullet and get this to tide me over until a later date if I want to upgrade...
