Thorens TD-160 Super. A legendary turntable that is renowned for its playback and “… is known as one of the best turntables in the audio history.” When introduced by Thorens, it was sold in limited quantities. Rare.

Alphason Xenon Transcription Pick-Up Arm. Rare. A great tonearm with a titanium arm tube. It features an ultra-rigid design machined from titanium right from the bearing to head shell as one piece. Note that the Alphason arm was designed to drop into a Linn armboard and had the same effective length.
• Alphason tonearm was developed specifically for suspended turntables and works exceptionally well with this Thorens. There are some marks on the head shell and base.
• Included are the original Alphason instructions, tonearm mounting template, original inner and outer boxes with foam inserts.
This is a great combination of turntable and tonearm that completes favorably with many reference, top of the line setups. A nice classic.
