Wanted: Thorens TD 124
« on: July 27, 2017, 09:55:47 AM »
I'm looking for a Thorens TD 124 MK I or MK II to add to my collection.  Turntable only is fine, I'm not too concerned about the plinth, armboard or tonearm.

Thanks!

Alt Route has a nice looking one on the tree and presumably in his shop.  R16000 but no shipping.  Try 'turntable guy gumtree' as a search

/\/\/\ That's a stunning one! Someone should grab it - they are becoming hen's teeth...
I love music - analog and digital. Even listening to the Blues makes me happy. During the day I coach and counsel, after hours I indulge in my second passion - listening to vinyl and restoring turntables. Some I keep, some I sell...

This particular table was first sold in the Norwegian market. The 'N' means that is is/was compliant with the Norwegian electricity code...

Some minor differences. They got rid of the voltage selection 'peg board' and closed one of the holes in the chassis with a plate (I assume to stop curious hands and fingers if the platter was off)...

I have this one but as you don't require a plinth and the hardwood plinth is probably the same value as the turntable it is probably not what you are looking for. With new Schopper mushrooms.

No. Phase has persuaded me to cull but whoever takes this has to pick up in a very remote area.

And now, watch you Inbox explode with PMs!  :clap:

I too would join the stampede, but collection in the remote area is a bit of problem... GLWS
