The Elektronika B1-01 is the high-end model from USSR from the 1970s. It’s a russian copy of the Thorens TD 125 turntable.
 
The player’s plinth is made from Oak wood. The tree is gently processed and oiled with special furniture oil. The bottom of the plinth, made of plywood, additionally damps parasitic resonances and vibrations without losing the natural harmonic richness of an analogue instrument. The whole structure is carried by 3 height adjustable spike foots with locknuts for better stability. These spikes enable to isolate the equipment from external vibrations in the environment.
 
The top surface is painted with black matte lacquer.

Restoration

The metal sub-chassis was damped with special acoustic material. This removes the specific metallic tinkle and also adjusts tonal balance to give a natural sound.


 
The platter bearing was cleaned of all the old oil and grease, and then oiled again with high quality oil especially recommended for this player’s bearing. The result of the bearing restoration is a more stable and smooth rotation and less mechanical noise.

Upgrades

The player is upgraded with legendary SME 3009 tonearm. It’s known to suit the Thorens turntables perfectly. It was selected in an already good condition, then it was restored and the bearing was cleaned. The tonearm internal wires were upgraded to high-end Nagaoka TC-111.


 
The tonearm is equipped with Bellex BX u 50 NE phono cartridge. It’s also possible to change it and install any other higher quality cartridge. We would recommend something like Nagaoka MP 110 (around 150 €) or MP 150 (around 30 €0), Ortofon Blue (around 180 €) or Bronze (around 300 €), Audio Technica At 150 MLX (around 350 €). Installation and tuning is free of charge, and you can also just send us your cartridge.
 
The new acrylic dust cover on hinges can be installed for additional 180 €.
 
The suspended sub-chassis will be tuned for use both with or without a stabilizer. The fully-loaded sub-chassis (platter, mat, vinyl and stabilizer) must be parallel to the supporting chassis. The stabilizer from the pictures cost an additional 60 €. You can also tell us your stabilizer weight and we will tune the sub-chassis for free.
 
The main platter disc edge is polished in matte and painted with lacquer to prevent tarnishing.
 
The complete package includes instructions for record player and tonearm adjustment and tuning.
