The Thorens TD 320 is the top model of the record players from the 300 series. It is still regarded as one of the most popular Thorens turntables. The heavy MDF chassis damps the motor noise well and contributes to rich bass.
The turntable has original plinth. The plinth finishing was restored. It was sanded and cleaned of old varnish and then painted with 4 successive layers of matte varnish, making it look much fresher. It is also possible to finish the plinth using any decorative wood veneers.
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.
The metal tray was damped with special acoustic material. It removes the specific metal tinkle from the sound and adjusts tonal balance, making the sound natural.
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.
Full list of restorations that was made
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 is equipped with Nagaoka MP 110 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 milled from acrylic glass.
The old cables were replaced with new audiophile high quality cables and gold plated RCA plugs. All of the soldering was done using audiophile silver solder WBT-0820 and flux X-M3 (no traces of alcohol).
The record player has an original dust cover. It’s not in very good condition and you may prefer not to use it (for design reasons). 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.
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.
