The Thorens Turntable

The Thorens turntable model TD-124 from 1957 and the Thorens TD-124 Mk II from 1966 were the top of the line in their day. Like a well-built classic car, these Swiss-made masterpieces of audio engineering are still of better quality than over 99% of modern turntables. So far, we have located one of each of these amazing pieces of Hi-Fi in our endless search for awesome vintage electronics. We also found a Thorens TD-150 Mk II from 1970, which might just be the best belt-drive turntable you'll ever use.

Thorens TD-124 Mk II

scott stereomaster console stereoThis Thorens turntable model TD-124 Mk II was taken out of a gigantic custom-made console stereo cabinet that had but one owner since purchased in the mid-60's. This console stereo had a Scott Stereomaster tube amp, an early Sansui TU-70 tube tuner, and an absolutely amazing pair of gold Jensen 2-way speakers, all in the most fabulous and quintessential Mid-Century Modern cabinetry and upholstry.  thorens turntable ESL tonearmThe Thorens TD-124 Mk II was complete with an Ortofon-made ESL S-1000 or S-2000 tonearm with ESL headshell and an old Shure cartridge and stylus. There was even this really cool Robins brand record dust brush attached to the headshell. thorens td-124 turntableThe tonearm had been mounted on a  stained and lacquered tonearm board that matched the wood underneath. This platform rested on foam covered wood brackets in the original cabinet (and it has a cool blank brass nameplate that wasn't engraved!). This Thorens TD-124  was still in excellent condition and was very well-cared-for.  All we did was some fine detail cleaning and it looked as good as new.  thorens td-124 turntable platterThe unbeliebably heavy platter of the Thorens TD-124 Mk II slowly lurched to life when the chunky switch was flipped to 33RPM speed, and it had typically impeccable timing with not even a hint of audible drag or inconsistency in speed. Unfortunately, there was a faint ticking or knocking sound that seemed to coincide with the rotation speed of the turntable. It was, apparently, a minor problem, because we sold this Thorens TD-124 Mk II at lightning speed. It now lives a happy life somewhere in British Columbia, Canada. Scroll down to see our original Thorens TD-124 and our Thorens TD-150 Mk II!

thorens turntable td-124Thorens TD-124

This legendary Thorens turntable model TD-124 is a standalone unit, mounted in its original factory-made plinth with an acrylic dust cover that was likely hand-crafted by the previous owner. It includes a fabulous Grado Laboratory Series walnut wood tonearm, which originally came with this turntable, and is one of the prettiest tonearms you will ever lay eyes on. Mounted in the headshell area is a Shure M95ED Hi-Track cartridge with flip-down stylus guard. Unfortunately, the previous owner chose to disregard this feature at the wrong time, and the stylus is now broken off. Also included is the original 24 page instruction manual, which reads a lot like an automobile owners manual, providing highly detailed information on how to properly play the TD-124, numerous maintenence, repair and upkeep tips and techniques, as well as a full illustrated breakdown of all the parts that make up this classic turntable. This Thorens TD-124 was found in excellent cosmetic condition, showing barely a scratch on the cream-colored surface of the unit.  The turntable was fully tested (using a cartridge and stylus from another turntable). Everything works properly, records play at the proper speed, the orange lighted stroboscope holds steady at all speeds from 16 to 78 rpm. The motor starts up and reaches proper speed fairly fast, despite the ridiculously heavy cast iron platter, and when switched off, the platter just spins and spins for over a minute before finally coming to a halt (which is, of course, the desired effect and a good sign that your Thorens TD-124 is in healthy condition). thorens td-150 turntableThis is truly an amazing piece of Swiss-Made machinery.
