Thorens TD 121. Similar to the 124 but uses less mechanism for a quieter noise floor. This model was primarily used for broadcasting. The trade off is it operates in one speed. The speed can be changed by removing the platter and resetting the height of one of the pulleys. 16, 33.3, 45 and 78 available. Currently set at 33.3.
The plus is you can have the excellent sound of an idler Thorens for a lot less.
This deck is in top condition:
--- Excellent condition main bearing pulled form a TD 124. --- Motor rebuild by Schopper (has about 50 hours on it plus the Schopper burn in process).
--- Solid Birch and Rosewood plinth.
---Audio Creative 12" tonearm. Titanium. Silver internal wiring. Sliding mount. Schopper armboard. New price for the arm only is $2,550. --- No head shell or cartridge included in sale. I have a few cartridges so if you want it to be turn key; just ask.
I hate to see this one go but I have too many turntables.
