Thorens

Since 1883, Thorens is the oldest HiFi company in the world still in production today, producing some of the world's highest quality and most critically acclaimed automatic and semi-automatic turntables. The company is Swiss owned, and each turntable is made with precision and care in Germany.

Thorens has become a legend in the Turntable market, with their vintage models still widely sought after today. Today, Thorens continues to replicate that quality with the idea that every turntable produced will last decades and be sought after by the Audiophile community for decades to come.

Rutherford Audio Inc. proudly represents Thorens in North America.

Since

In the Beginning
Thorens produced musical boxes,
lighters, gramaphones and even harmonicas,
they begain in 1903 to make turntables,
and havn't looked back.

1883

A promise of perfection
in sound and construction,
the fidelity of Thorens turntables,
is acheived through scrutiny in detail,
as we are perfectionists when it comes to audio.

Entry Level

The reference for Thorens entry level turntables is the TD 203. The TD 203 still incorporates the technology of its big brother the TD 309, but packages it into a turntable that is ready to play out of box.

The goal of our entry level turntables, is ease of use without sacrificing musical fidelity.

With Audiophiles in mind

For those who dream of perfection is our High End line. The star of this line will soon be the new 900 series line. With an eye on our vintage lovers, we have created this new line with the TD 150 and 160 and made improvements apon those designs to give it a new modern touch.

With over a century in the business, we have perfectd the Turntable. We build our products to last decades and you should expect nothing less.

HiFi News TD 309 Review

Despite appearances, the TD 309 is a true suspended-subchassis design, but the subchassis actually is the top plate of the deck. The suspension springs are hidden underneath, mounted at the corners of a moulded triangular support which forms the primary chassis.

6moons TD 309 Review

If you believe in the form follows function mantra, fitting a tri-point suspended turntable with a triangular plinth as Thorens has done for their TD309 only makes sense. As we’ll see, this decision wasn’t purely to chase cosmetic originality. While a fourth corner of sorts became necessary for the arm board, this deck from the traditional Swiss house clearly looks nothing like the usual rectangular boxy affair.

Audio Rumble TD 190-2

Now if you’re a fan of vinyl records, you will need a decent turntable in order to enjoy maximum comfort and convenience.We recommend the Thorens TD 190-2 Fully Automatic Turntable for this very purpose.

TD 203 Review

With vinyl sales soaring it’s no surprise that life is pretty good for turntable manufacturers too. Following Pioneer, who earlier this year unveiled their new plug in and play turntable, high-end audio company Thorens have also unveiled their newest turntable, the TD 203 – a slick, belt-driven deck for home-listening.
