Happy Sound Guarantee

Happy Sound Guarantee - 60 Day Returns Period

 

Purchasing an audio product on the internet is not the easiest of tasks when you can't experience the most important factor - how good does it sound?

We only sell quality products that we're happy to have in our own homes.

But we don't expect you to simply trust that the products on our site are good quality, so we've implemented a few things to help give you confidence.

Each of these individual guarantees and warranties have been wrapped up into the K&B Audio Happy Sound Guarantee!

 

THE HAPPY SOUND GUARANTEE

 

1. THE BEST Returns & Exchange Policy

Quite simply, if you are not happy with the quality of the speaker(s) that you buy from us then you can either;

 1) return all or part of your order and exchange or upgrade for a different system/speaker* or...

2) return them for a full refund

The only question we will ask is "Can we help you choose a different system/speaker?".

For full details on our returns policy please click here.

 

2. Extended Returns Period

We know that our products are often project based, we know you might be buying it now for installation a few weeks down the line.

So we've extended our returns period from the industry standard 14 days to an industry beating 60 days!

You can return the system for any reason during this period.** Please keep the packaging :)

For full details on our returns policy please click here.

 

3. Extended Product Warranties

Electronics are usually only covered by a one year warranty.

But we don't think that's good enough considering you have to cut holes in your ceiling!

We've managed to negotiate extended warranties with our best-selling brands that you won't get anywhere else.

 

Lithe Audio - 2 Year Standard, 1 Year Extended  = 3 YEARS TOTAL

Systemline - 2 YEARS TOTAL

KB Sound - 2 YEARS TOTAL

Monitor Audio Passive Speakers - LIFETIME

Q Install Speakers -  5 YEAR WARRANTY

Please check individual product pages for an accurate warranty length for that particular brand/product. If in doubt contact us on 02393 190955

 

4. FREE Tech Support

When you choose to buy from us at K&B Audio you'll also get access to free technical support before, during and after your project.

We can help you with project design, specification of projects, how to wire and install all of the systems we offer.

Once you have your system installed we can also help with how to use it, how to get the most out of it and anything else you need assistance with.

 

* upgrade costs must be paid in accordance with the prices shown on our website.

** unless the goods are damaged on delivery or faulty the return postage costs are to be covered by you.

Employing a new ultra-stable, direct-drive motor, a classically designed turntable with knife-edge tonearm bearings 

The TN-4D is a direct-drive, analogue turntable with an elegant, low-profile design, made possible by the use of a newly-developed brushless DC servo motor.

FEATURES

  • Direct-drive analogue turntable
  • Crystal-locked speed stability, thanks to a new brushless DC motor with feedback control
  • Die-cast aluminium platter
  • Knife-edge, pivot-point tonearm base, designed by high-end tonearm manufacturer SAEC
  • Multi-layer piano black or natural walnut veneer finish
  • Built-in PHONO EQ amplifier for high-quality sound (PHONO/LINE switchable)
  • Audiophile-grade NJM8080 op-amp used in PHONO EQ stage
  • Digital recording on PC/Mac via USB digital audio output
  • 2-speed drive offering 33-1/3 and 45 rpm
  • Gold-plated oxidation-resistant output connectors 
  • Oyster MM cartridge by SUMIKO
  • Shock-absorbing insulating feet
  • GND terminal
  • RoHS compliant

Our new brushless DC motor (with feedback control system) achieves crystal-locked speed stability and smoother rotation while also eliminating cogging*. This low-profile motor allowed us to design a plinth that’s extraordinarily sleek and stylish compared to that of most other direct drive turntables. The new tonearm employs knife-edge, pivot-point bearings, developed in collaboration with SAEC Corporation, a world-famous, high-end tonearm manufacturer. The result is an insightful, high-resolution sound quality that tonearms with conventional bearings can’t match. Partnering it is a carefully designed PHONO EQ amplifier that allows you to directly connect the turntable to the line-level inputs of your existing hi-fi system. A high quality NJM8080 op-amp, specially designed for hi-fi applications by New Japan Radio Corporation, is employed to convey the finest of musical detail. Additionally, a USB port on the back panel allows you to digitally archive your vinyl collection via your PC/Mac.

To extract the music from your vinyl, the TN-4D comes with a highly-regarded Oyster MM cartridge from SUMIKO – a legendary American cartridge manufacturer. Noted for its innate musicality, the cartridge comes pre-installed on the headshell at the factory, allowing near ‘plug and play’ operation. The S-shaped tonearm meanwhile allows for quick cartridge/headshell swaps, so users can alter the sound quality by experimenting with different cartridges, if the desire takes them.

The TN-4D is an analogue turntable that achieves highly accurate rotational speeds and is very distinctive, for a direct-drive design, thanks to its sleek and stylish aesthetics.

 

New motor, developed exclusively for direct-drive turntables

The TN-4D uses a sleek, brushless DC motor, offering crystal-locked speed accuracy, regulated by a computer-controlled feedback circuit and achieving low wow-and-flutter levels for a direct drive turntable, especially one with such a stylish, low-profile design. 

 

Die-cast aluminium platter

In conjunction with the newly-developed motor, the high inertia, die-cast aluminium platter helps to achieve better speed stability.

 

Knife-edge, pivot-point tonearm bearings

In collaboration with SAEC Corporation, a world-famous, high-end tonearm manufacturer, the TN-4D's tonearm employs a knife-edge, pivot-point bearing. Unlike the case for tonearms with conventional bearings, any fine vertical movements encountered by this tonearm actually help in delivering a more dynamic sound with excellent resolution. The S-shaped tonearm also employs a universal headshell fitting, allowing users to quickly and easily swap cartridges/headshells, and supports a wide range of cartridge weights (from 14 - 23g)

 

Precision anti-skating and stylus-pressure adjustment

As you might expect, the tonearm is equipped with a counterweight, for precise stylus-pressure adjustment, and an anti-skating mechanism.

 

Built-in PHONO EQ amplifier supporting MM cartridges

The TN-4D comes with a built-in PHONO EQ amplifier that allows you to directly connect the turntable to the line-level inputs of your existing hi-fi system. The NJM8080 IC from New Japan Radio Corporation is employed for op-amp duties, bringing up the level of the tiny signals received via the cartridge up to LINE level strength without any loss of quality.

 

USB digital output

A USB port on the back panel delivers CD-quality digital audio to your PC/Mac, allowing you to record/archive your vinyl in a high quality, digital audio format. Once you have archived your vinyl to digital, it’s a simple matter to listen to them while out and about, via a smartphone/portable audio player, or in your car (by burning them onto a CD-R or transferring them to a memory card/stick).

And to ensure pristine signal transfer, gold-plated PHONO/LINE output terminals are employed to prevent analog audio signals from losing quality as a result of oxidation.

 

2-speed turntable for 33-1/3 and 45 rpm

The TN-4D supports 33-1/3 and 45 rpm for LP and EP records. Our insistence on quality engineering can even be seen in the construction of the rotary control for start-up/speed selection, formed of machined aluminium.

 

Insulating feet with excellent shock absorption

The insulating feet comprise a machined aluminium shell topped with a rubber cushion that is fixed to the high-density MDF plinth. Thanks to their excellent shock absorption characteristics the TN-4D is very resistant to acoustic feedback.

 

Pre-installed Oyster cartridge by SUMIKO

The TN-4D comes with a well-regarded Oyster MM cartridge from SUMIKO – a legendary American cartridge manufacturer. Regardless of the type of music, the Oyster cartridge delivers a powerful but insightful performance.
