Thorens 900 Series

Thorens TD 900 Series 

For the first time the Thorens TD 900 series will be in North America for you to listen too. Thorens will be at the Rutherford Audio showroom at CES. Rutherford Audio will be in the Venetion in Suite 30-334, you can visualize our location here. The launch comprises three new models: TD 903, TD 905 and TD 907, all of which share the three-spring sub-chassis design that is so highly regarded among vinyl lovers. The new models are a deliberate reminiscence of legendary models such as the TD 150 and TD 160, top-selling turntables in their day. 

A user-friendly design

In order to adjust the spring tension, one needn’t access the springs from inside the plinth as with older turntables or many other products. The new THORENS® models can be adjusted from above – even while a record is spinning.

The TD 903 is the entry-point to the new THORENS® reference range. The next model up is the TD 905, which features a heavily braced plinth with an advanced damping architecture. Both of these models come with the TP 92 nine-inch tonearm. The flagship of the range, the TD 907, comes with the TP 88 ten-inch uni-pivot tonearm and a more sophisticated internal structure: its sub-chassis is damped my means of a conical membrane (similar to a speaker cone). Vent holes in the base plate allow the user to adjust the damping level.
