New Thorens TD124DD

Post by raphaelmabo » 11 May 2019 08:46

Thorens has showned at Munich High End Show an updated version of the classic TD124, now called TD124 DD. This comes with a TP124 tonearm with SME connection and ”weight on a string”-antiskate. No technical details, price or availability has been released yet.

Here is an image, from Thorens FB-page. It looks very much like a, well, TD124.

Just like the Garrard 301. There should also be an updated version in Munich.

Interesting, but it is probably a lot chaeper to buy one "original" versions.

And there should be a new version of the GARRARD 301 as well.Thanks

Niels

Yes, SME bought the rights to the Garrad name last year and they have showned a 301 at the Munich show.

I believe the TD124 DD would cost at least 100 000 euro too. Personally, if I had the money I would go for a TD550 instead. :)

It is an amazing price tag. Wonder what they changed from the original concept? Or what 'beter' materials they used.
