Wish MD would drop decent turntables I'd pull the trigger on some Pioneer plx 1000s in a heartbeat. Belt drive just... Yeah...

Replying off of an old comment but Teac turntables are definitely not crap especially the middle to upper range. This is a well-reviewed turntable with plenty of features, good looks and great build quality. Maybe you're just a Technics 1200 fanboy?
78 RPM's too! YEAH! I have so many vintage 78's that I want to play and archive!

. 2% wow flutter for a $400 turntable? That's a sick joke.

Kind of the norm these days. The days of 0.015% wow and flutter at reasonable price points are mostly gone.

And who knows if that was even measured correctly back then. The measurements of tables back then may have been worse than tables today. They create new standards and new ways of measuring but we look at it as "worse specs" when we are not always comparing Apples to Apples.

OK... oddball question I doubt will have an answer from anyone with direct experience, but here goes:
Which is a better choice for 78rpm playback... the Teac TN-400 or Audio Technica LP120?
I've got stacks of inherited 78s that I would love to be able to play. I have a good main turntable for LP playback (MMF-5), so this will be a secondary table in another room. Yes, I know I'll need a separate cartridge and will probably buy a second headshell for whichever table I choose. Nice that the Teac comes with the AT100E for LP playback.
Thanks!

I like wood as well, it would go great in my living room! The AT styling is also quite retro in my view, but the wood is definitely prettier.

I ended up going with the LP120 as well, and have been pleasantly surprised by the build quality and features. Since I bought it primary for 78 RPM, the fast start up and braking of the direct drive are welcome characteristics. The reviews also swayed me to the LP120.

Are there any other TT around with a black walnut finish? I prefer actual wood. This one seems to have mixed reviews and I don't really mind spending more.

Check out Music Direct and Needle Doctor, Project TT, Music Hall and Rega are all better than Teac, belt drive is quieter. Demo turntables should also be considered. The wood finish is vinyl made to look like wood.

Opinions seems to vary greatly on this unit. "Audiophiles" seem to regard the specs as sub-par for the price point.

Hoping to see what others think. I've been looking to get back into TT at around the $500 pricepoint for both TT and stylus....

Thanks for the comments, everyone. Someone made me a deal I could not refuse on a TEAC TN-550 (like - almost 1/2 price) - so I went with that.

Some so-called audiophiles are pre-reviewing it and prejudging it before even ever holding it, looking at it or listening to it. Teac makes quality units
This or Audio-Technica??? belt drive vs. direct drive? three hundred and twenty nine ninetynine vs two hundred ninetynine,ninetynine lol...........

So I have the step down TN-300 I went with the TEAC as the AT has built in RCA cables so if say one of my cats decided to chew up the cords... Not that that EVER happens.. But you know if it did... That was my main consideration when choosing between the two other than looks. Both have decent reviews for the price and similar features.

The At 120 and 60 get alot of good reviews. A company named LP gear will upgrade the needle and belt for a very reasonable price and they have a great return policy.
