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.

Mono and Stereo TD-235 Review

There is a special place in each of us that secretly or openly admire the tradition and fine craftsmanship of Swiss manufacturers. Over the past 150 years many companies established legendary status with their approach from watchmaking, precision micro machinery and non the less excellent product finishing. Swiss quality represent a synonym for a quality and long term lasting products.

What HiFi TD 309

The TD309 comes as a package, including dedicated arm and a decent moving-magnet cartridge.It has a suspended sub-chassis design, which makes it less sensitive to placement than many rivals.

The Audio Beat TD 309 Review

The TD 309 is a beautifully designed object. In place of the usual black or woodgrain rectangular platform, the TD 309 resembles a heraldic shield laid upon three stout black bases...The glass platter (called "fused silica"), aluminum tonearm and shiny silver balance weight complete a visual package that wouldn’t look out of place in a mid-century interior. The form is clean and elegant, and it suggests the quality manufacturing appropriate for a more than one-hundred-year-old company.

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.
