3-Speed Belt-Drive Suspended Chassis Turntable (1976-1986)
with electronic speed control
The TD-126 by Thorens is the transcription turntable for discriminating music lovers and professional users.
It is the product of 95 years experience in the construction of musical instruments allied to the mastering of the most advanced technology in the fields of fine mechanics and electronics.
The main objectives of Thorens engineers remain unchanged: robustness, reliability and life-time maintenance of the original performance specification.
In the constant battle against rumble, Thorens designed a servo controlled electronic belt-drive to associate with their unique floating suspension system.
Thanks to this exclusive design, the TD-126 can claim rumble figures equalled by no other drive system.
The TD126 mkI, mkII and mkIV use AC synchronous motors, while the TD126 mkIII uses a DC servo motor.
The unit gave fine, wow-free performance. The bass was comparatively even and extended, while good stereo depth and ambience were apparent - HiFi Choice
