What is the difference between the new TNT-6, TNT-6 HR and all previous TNT’s:

  1. The TNT-6 uses the inverted bearing design pioneered in the Scout, and then refined and in the HR-X.  In the TNT 6, this design uses a larger clear acrylic platter similar to the HR-X (fits the periphery ring clamp) with an expanded and longer version of the Scout bearing.  This is a recommended upgrade for all TNT owners.
     

  2. The TNT-6 uses the dual motor/flywheel assembly of the HR-X for ultimate speed stability and smoothness of sound.  You get a table that starts quickly, has amazing speed control, and runs very smoothly due to the dual low power 300 RPM 24 pole motors.
     

  3. Both these tables occupy the same space as a TNT JR., 25” X 19”   ·        Why an inverted bearing design: Very quiet, very dynamic, free of all random motion due to the stability of the inverted design since the thrust ball is placed just below where the record rest.  The belt is driving the platter through the middle of the bearing assembly instead of two to three inches away from the center of the bearing assembly.  There is no generation of teeter-totter motion.

"The TNT 6 in combination with the JMW 12.5 offers an astonishingly complete package that blends material value with superb musical performance, practicality with attainable optimization of each and every record. It also looks a million dollars whilst costing rather less. What makes the 6 special is the balance it strikes between the various aspects of the musical performance, the poise and power with which it binds them into a single, coherent whole."
