Marantz TT42 Turntable
Combining classic turntable design with modern audio technologies, the Marantz TT42 Turntable plays back your vinyl collection with stunning audio quality. This turntable features a fully automatic mechanism that plays records with a touch of a button. A low-coloration tone arm, DC servo motor, and belt drive ensure pristine, interference-free playback. Vinyl Record Playing with Modern Convenience Have you noticed the resurgence of vinyl record sales in recent years? Fueled by the fact that many treasured albums have not been issued in digital format, and with newer artists continuing to release music on vinyl, turntables are popping up in living rooms all over the world. The Marantz TT42 Turntable combines old school record playing with convenient, high-performance features. The turntable is fully automatic: with a push of the "play" button, the tone arm precisely lifts itself onto the record groove, saving you the trouble of having to manually position the stylus. Once playback has concluded, the tone arm safely returns to its resting position without scuffing your record. A Quality Mechanism for High-Fidelity Playback The TT42 turntable is outfitted with a low-coloration tone arm that resists resonance for a clear, balanced sound. A high quality, moving magnet cartridge is preset at the factory for proper tracking and smooth response. In addition, the turntable's DC servo belt drive keeps the motor running at a constant speed for optimum performance. The TT42 is designed to produce a stunning, nuanced, and distortion-free audio performance. A version of the TT42 with a phono preamp, the TT42P, which features built-in phono input circuitry, is also available to accommodate multi-channel receivers that lack a proper phono input.
