Thorens TD1601 Turntable premium
Having changed owners has clearly worked out well for the beloved Thorens brand. The TD1601 strikes precisely the right balance between classic values and modern engineering. It offers all the benefits of the best classic Thorens turntables along with very high build quality and significantly improved sound at a very sensible price.
