Thorens TD-160

This Classic Thorens TT was given to me by my Brother (thanks Bro) - he'd got a few decks and this one was gathering dust in his attic.


It was in pretty good shape but needed a few things doing, including;
A thorough clean (including the headshell contacts), bearing lube, suspension adjustment, new cartridge tags and new RCA connectors.
There was also a bit of play in the bearings of the TP16 tone arm - thankfully very straight forward to adjust.


The platter was covered in a light, pale corrosion.
Nothing that a little bit of wet'n'dry paper with lots of soapy water couldn't fix.


Have tried a variety of cartridges, including the LOMC AT OC9 ML II (as pictured) which performed very well.

A stylish and accomplished Turntable.


UPDATE: This turntable has now been passed on to a colleague who is once again enjoying the world of vinyl
