I would like to sell a Thorens TD124 that has been fully restored with a new, custom plinth. I have another 124 so I'd like to sell this one.
This 124 has had the following work performed:
Custom plinth made covered with Padouk veneer finished in hand-rubbed oil for a soft gloss. The interior of the plinth is solid except for the space needed to clear the motor and mechanism. The spaces are filled with layers of cabinet plywood and MDF. Feet are turned aluminum. Black feet are shown in the photos but I can replace these with natural aluminum if you'd prefer. The complete table weighs around 45 pounds.
The motor has been upgraded to a MkII suspension which offers improved isolation. The bearings in the motor were replaced with new ones (Audio Silente) along with felt washers. It was properly aligned upon reassembly. The motor mounts are now double silicone gel bushings which offer greatly improved isolation.
The main bearing has been polished - smoother and more stable.
All bearing surfaces have been polished correctly and tolerances maintained. All pulley surfaces have been cleaned.
The top plate has been refinished in an antique copper finish, as shown in the photos.
Includes a new idler wheel from Audio Silente, with two choices of traction surface and extra traction O-rings. The so-called mushrooms are new. The table is floating in the plinth but is could be secured. I know there are different schools of though on floating the table vs. coupling it tightly. Either approach would work with this plinth. If you want it secured, I can supply longer threaded studs to go all the way through the plinth.
New armboard made from MDF covered in waterfall bubinga veneer.
New belt. New rubber isolators between the iron platter and the aluminum top platter. And probably some stuff I've forgotten...
No arm is included, but I have several arms that could be added: VpI JMW10.5 with VTA Tower; Lustre GST 801; Alphason Design Xenon MCS; Audio Craft AC300. The VPI arm will work with the standard armboard because it has the VTA micrometer tower. Also a bunch of cartridges that could be added, including a Grace F9 and Supex SD901.
Here are a few photos. I have lots more if you're interested.
Thanks for looking!
