Thorens TD 124 DD – Tradition Meets Innovation

The original TD 124 was introduced in 1957 and has been used for decades in countless broadcast studios around the world. Ambitious music lovers also quickly discovered the highly precise turntable for themselves; a dedicated fan base has remained loyal to the TD 124 to this day.

Thorens is now building on this tradition with the completely newly developed TD 124 DD and continues it with innovative technologies. The purist design and basic construction are based on the original, but the height-adjustable aluminum chassis now rests on vibration-damping rubber elements. Instead of the original drive with friction wheel and belt, the new TD 124 DD uses a “High Precision” Direct Drive. This provides powerful torque, allows precise speed control, and keeps unwanted vibrations from the drive away from the platter.


Thorens TD 124 DD – Build For The Best Sound

Also new is the TP 124 tonearm. It can be precisely adjusted in all parameters to the cartridge of choice and features an innovative anti-skating solution with a ruby bearing and a patented electric tonearm lift to facilitate gentle placement and removal of the stylus. In addition to the extensive adjustment options, the enclosed headshell provides a great deal of flexibility when it comes to selecting a cartridge.

Thorens has paid attention to every detail when developing the new TD 124 DD to ensure that it meets the highest aspirations in sound performance. A high-quality external power supply unit ensures interference-free power delivery. In addition to the RCA and balanced XLR output connectors are also provided, guaranteeing optimal signal transmission and thus the best possible sound when connecting the TD 124 DD to a high-end system with an appropriately equipped phono preamplifier.

Reviews

Stereophile (Analog Product of the Year)
“The TD 124 DD also excelled at rhythmic punch and dynamics, producing music with vigor and drive. The ‘table’s low noise floor made for stark dynamic contrasts as music burst from the subtlest ppp to the boldest fff.”

HiFi News
“If you approve of retro – and you must to ‘get’ this – you’ll find the Thorens TD 124 DD one of the most successful trips ever in audio time-travel, on a par with McIntosh’s MC275. The look is 100% correct, and the sound is better than I recall of the original. Along with VPI’s and Technics’ new direct-drive turntables, the TD 124 DD forces you to bury your prejudices. If I had £8000, this would be staying put.”

Stereo Magazine
“In daily use, you can quickly forgot the retro background of the 124DD, which is simply a great turntable of high quality that provides a great amount of fun and sparks delight, even excluding the relation to its famous ancestor.”
