The multi-award-winning TD 1601 with improved tonearm TP 160
The TD 1601, featuring the new TP 160 tonearm, represents a consistent evolution of the multi-award-winning TD 1601. It possesses a classic wooden plinth, a two-part machined aluminum platter with an internally run ground drive belt. The external linear power supply TPN 1600 is equipped with a high-performance toroidal transformer and provides the synchronous motor with 2x 16V to ensure the highest possible rotational stability of the platter.
Tradition meets modernity - THORENS TD 1500
In 1965, the Thorens TD 150, an inconspicuous little turntable, came on the market and thus started a technical revolution in record player manufacturing. For the first time, a spring-suspended sub-chassis with an inner platter driven by a flat belt was used in a mass-produced unit. The principle proved to be very successful and found many imitators in the years since. Like its famous predecessor, the new Thorens TD 1500, which will be operated purely manually, features a sub-chassis that decouples the turntable and tonearm shelf from the motor and frame by means of three conical springs. In contrast to the TD 150, these springs can be adjusted from above through corresponding holes in the platter, which makes correct adjustment much easier.
The directly driven one - THORENS TD 403 DD
With the new model TD 403 DD Thorens completes the line of direct drive plug-and-play turntables of the 400 series. Visually a true Thorens, the new TD 403 DD features the same proven smooth-running direct drive as the successful TD 402 DD, but sets itself apart from its smaller brother with a more massive 1.4 kg and 22mm-thick Die-cast aluminum platter and the TP 150 audiophile tonearm also used in the new TD 1500 model. A high-quality and pre-adjusted 2M Blue cartridge from Danish cartridge specialist Ortofon is also supplied as standard. This proves to be an adequate playing partner due to its naked diamond with elliptical stylus.
