The TN-280BT-A3 turntable offers extra versatility with a best-in-class Bluetooth® wireless connection. Simply connect the turntable to your wireless speakers of choice and drop the needle on your favorite records.

The TN-280BT-A3 also features a built-in Phono EQ amplifier for line output, allowing you to connect to almost any sound system regardless of the type of inputs.

The belt-drive motor on the TN-280BT-A3 reduces vibration for dynamic, more accurate sound than direct-drive turntables, while an aluminum die-cast platter and anti-skating system provide a solid foundation for great-sounding playback. The high-performance, upgradable MM cartridge AT3600L from Audio-Technica captures every detail, and the static-balanced straight tone-arm ensures clear sound. It’s all housed in a handsome case in black veneer.

The TN-280BT-A3 delivers sound wirelessly via a built-in Bluetooth® transmitter, in addition to conventional RCA output in analog Line or Phono format. The pairing button is located at the right-front side of the cabinet, and the pairing indicator tells you the speakers/headphone is successfully connected.


Unlike other turntable units, the TN-280BT-A3 provides you an easy way to experience your vinyl via Bluetooth® wireless technology.

If you already have Bluetooth-enable speakers or headphones for your iPhone/Android phone, all you have to do is to install the TN-280BT-A3 in your room – no pricy hi-fi system and complicated wiring are needed. The connection is frustration-free – just press the BT pairing button when the Bluetooth® speakers/headphones are ready for the pairing, and once the connection is established, you don’t need to do it again.

The TN-280BT-A3 also features a PHONO input via cable with an included RCA audio cable.

The high inertia aluminum die-cast platter is driven by a high torque DC motor for stable rotation for both 33-⅓ and 45 rpm. A soft felt mat further reduces vibration effectively. The high accuracy of the spindle is maintained by a polished Stainless steel Spindle and highly durable bronze spindle holder.

Unlike other with plastic chassis, the heavy MDF cabinet minimizes vibrations and resonance for clearer sound.

Enjoy vinyl playback with any amplifier. The TN-280BT-A3 supports both Phono and Line outputs that allow you to enjoy vinyl records with or without a phono equalizer.

VM-Type Cartridge Pre-Installed for Quick Start

A straight tone-arm is employed for high tracking accuracy. The anti-skating mechanism also ensures accurate tracking of vinyl records. A VM-type (equivalent to MM-type) cartridge Audio-Technica AT3600L is installed at the factory.
