Hi all. I'm considering buying a Thorens TD166 mkII off of CL (the posting is here: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/ele/3125602552.html
). I've got a Philips 312 that's in pretty nice shape -- though it does have a grounding(?) hum problem that comes and goes and that I haven't been able to track down. The Philips works well most of the time, but I've always wanted a Thorens and this struck me as perhaps a good deal.
So the couple of questions I have are... Based on the ad, does it seem like it may be a fair price? And, as I think that this Thorens was one of their lower-end models at the time, would it be an upgrade from my Philips or more a lateral move? Would I be better off waiting for a higher-end model to come along? Thanks very much in advance for any sage advice you might offer
