Hi Roger, I don't know the TP11 tonearm but I believe to remember reading that they are credited in the "OK" zone for a "cheaper" end tonearm. It's a light mass tonearm and the cartridge is a high compliant one. So on specs side they are matchable. The Thorens TD146 is not the most loved one from the TD's series. Still I liked mine while I had it.
