For sale a recently refurbished and upgraded Thorens TD-145 turntable. The table was upgrade and refurbished by a Thorens specialist service company in Tennessee.
The upgrades include the following: the plinth, motor assembly, tonearm mount and platter were refitted into the chassis of Thorens TD-160 Super which according the technician had better damping. More damping material was the added to the chassis to further reduce motor noise and airborn vibration. I can vouch for this improvement because the table is dead silent during play, and better than my three previous tables The refurbishing entailed disassembling the motor and drive system, a thorough cleaning of all parts, and lubricated. After completion, motor speed was checked. In addition, two quality phono cable were installed to replace the original wimpy Thorens leads
PLEASE NOTE: The dustcover that came with the table has moderate scratches on the top and a few on the sides. In addition, the table has a end of ply stop and lift feature which is finicky. That is, it will operate if the tonearm and cartridge move across the label toward the spindle
The technician explained that Thorens;s design and use of a solenoid to trigger the lift feature operated this way on several models I often use the lift control on the right hand side of the plinth.
Nevertheless, It is good sounding table with little to no motor noise which improves overall clarity. BTW, THERE IS AN ADJUSTMENT ON THE TONEARM BASE FOR THIS FEATURE. Buyer pays for shipping and paypal fees
I will except certified "major" bank checks and USPS postal money orders as payment Thank you.
Turntable comes with a new Audio Technica 440MLb cartridge which retails for $250,00 The cartridge is new and has approx. 30 hours of play. The headshell is also new and purchased from "Vinyl Nirvana". The original head shell will be included.
