Thorens is quite possibly the world's most spoken about and accomplished phonograph company. Hermann Thorens founded his company in Switzerland in 1883. Thorens originally produced Edison-type phonographs, then developed two of the most important inventions in the format's history: the direct drive system in 1928 and moving magnet cartridge in 1929. Over the next 60 years, Thorens produced a prolific lineup of turntables, tonearms, and cartridges, while also inventing the record changer.
TRADITIONAL VALUES – REINTERPRETED
Paying homage to the legendary TD 150 and TD 160 models of the sixties and seventies, THORENS® has reinterpreted the sub-chassis turntable with a state-of-the-art, ground-up development using the latest materials.
Highest fidelity and dynamics were our main priorities during the development of the new turntable series. However, we also placed great importance on user-friendliness, a timeless aesthetics as well as flexible configuration and upgrade options while retaining the traditional sub-chassis design.
