The Thorens TD 160 is the top classic model from the 1970s. It is a precision instrument which, with reasonable care, will deliver optimum reproduction quality and protect your records for years to come.

The player’s plinth is made from Mahogany 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 height adjustable spike foots with locknuts for better stability. These spikes enable to isolate the equipment from external vibrations in the environment.

Restoration

The metal chassis and sub-chassis were additionally 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 Jelco SA-750D tonearm.  The tonearm is upgraded with high-quality audio cables by Mario Groezinger and Yamamoto HS-1A African ebony headshell.

The tonearm is equipped with a used Technics EPC-207 C 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 300 €), 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 armboard is made of sandwich of plywood and acrylic glass.
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 was polished in chrome.
The complete package includes instructions for record player and tonearm adjustment and tuning.

Details

The shipping is not included. We will pack the turntable very carefully and securely, as if it were a crystal vase.

You may return the turntable within 7 days of arrival for a full refund, minus shipping charges. After 7 days and within one year, if a player has any problems, we can repair it for free or just for the cost of replaced parts, if replacement will be necessary.
