TEAC, famous for its premium range of high performance reel to reel tape decks in the golden era of hi-fi in the 70s and 80s still ploughs on today in the highly competitive world of the audio/video market.
TEAC however stopped making those huge, sophisticated open reel machines but their technical expertise has been put to good use making a comprehensive range of amplification units, compact audio systems and turntables.
The top of the turntable range, at least as far as the local Malaysian market is concerned is the model TN-4D, a direct drive design with an S-shaped detachable headshell tone-arm.

TEAC-TN-4D - The rear features a pair of phono sockets with switchable phono pre-amp and a USB socket.

As with most modern turntables the TEAC TN-4D is packed to the gills with features such a stereo pair of line output sockets for connecting it to an amplifier. This output level is backed up by a built-in phono pre-amp circuit that allows it to be used with a stereo amplifier with a proper phono input or any AV amplifier that lack a proper phono level input. In addition to that the TN-4D also comes with a USB output jacket that allows the user to digitally archive his vinyl collection via the PC/Mac.
Partnered to the 9 inch tone-arm is a moving magnet cartridge sourced from Sumiko, a legendary American high end cartridge manufacturer.
Other features of the TN-4D includes a brushless DC moto, a solid aluminium platter and four shock absorbing insulating feet.
The TN-4D turntable weighs a hefty 5.5kg. and retails for RM4,399.

Dick Tan is one of the longest serving member of the audio-video industry having spent close to 45 years in it. Tan started in the mid 70s working in audio showrooms and writing for fledgling audio magazines in the country.

“I have been through turntables to open reel and cassette tape decks to amplifiers and speakers in that golden era of hi-fi to the sophistication of today's digital audio and AV components such as Bluray and UHD Bluray discs players to streamers and beyond. In the end they all have one common goal … to achieve audio and video in the best, most efficient way possible.”

The other 'hat' that Tan wears, at least once each year, is that of the organiser of the AV Show which started in 1994. The KL International AV Show has been consistently held every year since for the last 26 record breaking years.
