3-Speed Belt-Idler-Drive turntable with integrated tonearm
Available in mkI form (1961-1964) and mkII (1965-1968).
The Thorens TD-135 is a precision transcription turntable designed to function, for peak performance, solely with the Thorens BTD-12S professional tone arm.
While the BTD-12S tone arm is offered as a separate unit, the TD-135 is never sold separately.
Exceeding NAB standards for rumble, wow and flutter, the 4-speed motor unit features the same belt-idler drive, the same heavy, 12 inch non-magnetic turntable, and motor, the same variable speed control, and the same quality, precision and Swiss craftsmanship that have made other Thorens turntables famous for peerless performance.
No other integrated unit approaches the professional standards of the TD135 / BTD12S combination.
Accessories include the WBX wooden base, MBX mounting board, RTC-135 roll-top base and PU-921 plug-in headshell.
