Thorens TD160 MKII

Post by idleman » 06 Aug 2004 16:15

I have a Thorens TD160 MKII for sale which is in excellent condition. It appears that the tonearm cable was cut, which I replaced with a much better one, but this seems to have ensured that it saw very little use. I also bought a new 16V wall-wart for it, and a new belt, as the original was missing. The main bearing looks like it never spun, the motor and pulley are pristine, the top-plate looks like new as does the high-gloss rosewood veneer, except for one small chip on the left side. The acrylic lid and has no cracks but the usual swirls, and the tonearm - a TP16 MKII which looks like new with superb silky-smooth and tight precision bearings (much better than the TP16 MKIs I have had in hand) - sounds fantastic with the Shure V15VxMR I am currently using on it. I now have too large a collection of 'tables, and have to start selling them off: I would like to sell this one to an appreciative audience.

Sorry Oskar! I live in North America and so this Thorens is a 60 Hz model. You'd need to find a European motor or at least pulley, which would add to the cost, and the shipping charges would as well. But keep looking!
