Thorens Turntables Serial Numbers

Post by funkthumb » 05 Jun 2013 20:49

I saw this on a forum at head-fi.org and just wondered if anybody here would be willing to participate. I thought it was kind of interesting to see what everybody's number on their turntable was. It's interesting to find out who has the lowest number etc. I can start with my TT.

Type: TD 160
B.No.: 113962

I assume that B.No. is the build number (??) or something like that. If anyone is a Thorens expert or if they used to work for Thorens - maybe they can Help out with this. I am guessing that if we knew more about the number we could probably pin down date of manufacture and things like that. What is everybody else's numbers?
BTW - My number at head-fi was #14040 for my Grado 325is headphones ( one of many! :D ).

TD 160
B. No 219529

There was a date stamp on the inside of the plinth, 1975, but I couldn't read the month. It is now covered by glued-in reinforcement.

Don't give up so easy! It's only been a couple of weeks, and I dare say most Thorens owners don't drop in here that often. It's still a good idea. Maybe we should give the thread a bump every now and then to make sure it's visible. If a year goes by without much action you can give up :)

Did you intend to make some sort of table or database with this info, or is it just for kicks?

Just for kicks but if a table was made could it be stickied to the first post I wonder so it's the first thing you see when checking out this thread.
