Marantz TT42 and TT42P Turntables


Marantz has just announced the introduction of its new TT42 turntable ($399). The DC Servo belt-driven TT42 is designed as an entry-level turntable ideally suited for the growing numbers of music lovers who are discovering – or rediscovering – the benefits of an analog vinyl listening experience. Notably, for music lovers with amplifiers or receivers that do not include a dedicated phono stage input, the TT42 is also available with a built-in phono preamplifier that boosts volume and equalizes sound, for a suggested retail price of $429 (model TT42P).

The Marantz TT42 offers total user convenience and musical superiority, with a specially designed Moving Magnet cartridge for stellar performance right out of the box. Its low-noise DC servo motor is smooth and quiet running, with a fully floating chassis for uninterrupted LP play. The automatic tone-arm return and stop functions deliver trouble-free operation, while the metal bearing and rubber belt drive add to the response, musicality and overall performance of the component. The result is a vinyl listening solution superbly suited for the modern age, one that will allow everyone to enjoy their old and new record collections in style.
