Teac BLACK ANALOG TURNTABLE 2 SPEED
Top customer reviews
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Turntable has been running and sounding even better coming up on nearly a year. People have been leaving some reviews in regards to speed issues. While you should expect a new table to not have any issues there may be some rpm inconsistancies. There are plenty of smart phone apps that do a good job at showing your platter speed. Mine was running a tad fast. There are speed adjustments on the bottom of the deck. An eye glass screwdriver works well. Was able to adjust both 33 and 45 speeds and they have been running dead on true for nearly 10 months. Upgraded the cartridge to the AT120eb. Nice jump in seperation and detail. Biggest upgrade to my system is the addition of the schiit mani pre amp. The built in pre amp sounds decent but if you really want to hear what your cartridge can do i would highly recommend bypassing the built in with a dedicated phono stage if you dont have an integrated amp with a phono stage. Seriously it was like pulling a blanket off the speakers. Big jump in detail,clarity and dont beed to turn up the amp as much. Overall this table continues to impress. Performs well above its specs and cost.
Swapped out the 120eb stylus for a 440mlb micro line stylus and the table sounds even better than before. Excellent stylus for dead on vocals and bass response. No inner groove distortion at all. Added a sleeve city record stabilizer weight as well. No noticeable sound improvement but it looks the part I guess. No issues with the weight on the platter. With the record playing and the rpm app on my phone placed on top of the weight it shows dead on 33.3. Now been a year and the teac is sounding better than ever.
Added another headshell to easily swap in a nagaoka mp110 cartridge to give the 440mlb a break from being the main cart. Excellent cartridge. Still loving the deck. No issues what so ever.
SOUND: Both decks have great sound at this price point. I used the on-board preamp on the TEAC and a Behringer Microphono PP400 with the Pro-ject. The output was essentially equal. I'd say the TEAC sounds slightly warmer. The Ortofon 2M cartridge that comes with the Pro-ject is supposed to be better than the Audio-Technica AT95E, but I'm not hearing it. Winner: Tie
USABILITY: This is where the TEAC blows away the Pro-ject. It's significantly easier to use the TEAC. The on/off switch is on top of the deck; whereas the Pro-ject's is underneath. The TEAC's cue lever has a richer feel to it and the tone arm has more presence. If you want to listen to 45 rpm records on the Pro-ject it's an ordeal. You have to take the platter off and move the belt (this doesn't sound like as much of a nuisance as it becomes, trust me). On the TEAC, the rpm switch is adjacent to the on/off switch. I tested a long-playing 45 rpm on both decks and it was so wonderful to just flip the switch on the TEAC. Winner: Hand's down the TEAC.
APPEARANCE: What drew me to the Pro-ject Debut Carbon was its simple aesthetic. It really is a gorgeous piece of artwork for the minimalist at heart. The TEAC is a beautiful machine in its own right (it has a 70's feel, which I love), but there's something sculptural about the Pro-ject that I find more compelling. Winner: Pro-ject
VIBRATION: The Pro-ject deck is more substantial. However, its sturdiness makes it prone to vibration. The TEAC's lighter and is coupled with shock absorbent feet that really do work. Winner: TEAC
SETUP: The counterbalance and anti-skating were significantly easier to setup on the TEAC. In my time with the Pro-ject I've had trouble with the anti-skate weight coming loose--it's held in place by a piece of fishing line. Winner: TEAC
EXTRAS: Both decks come with dust covers. The Pro-ject's includes an unsightly logo on top. The TEAC's comes with some useful, rubber feet. The TEAC also includes a rubber mat that is substantially nicer than the flimsy piece of felt that comes with the Pro-ject (you'll have to replace it because it will cling to your records). The TEAC also comes with an electrical cord with swappable US and European plugs. Both units include cables, but the Pro-ject's has built-in grounding wires. The TEAC includes a USB cable. (For the record, I think TEAC could have left out the USB functionality as I suspect its superfluous quality will turn off purists.) Winner: TEAC
SUMMARY: Overall I'm actually quite surprised I'm giving this one to TEAC. I'm torn because I truly love the simple look of my white, Pro-ject deck, but I've fallen for the usability and slightly warmer sound of the TEAC.
