Thorens's TD 810 Turntable with TP300VT arm
Turntables by Thorens
The chassis is made of 19-mm thick high-density wood. This is flexibly bonded to a five-mm thick steel plate. This new sandwich is much better than ordinary construction in signal behavior and resonance absorption. The steel plate has laser-made cutouts to make sure that no magnetic distortion influences the audio signal. Standing on three polymer-damped adjustable feet that are also height adjustable, the chassis is decoupled and isolated from the mounting surface. The Thorens silent-run bearing is made of two sinter bushes with a polished stainless steel axle running inside. The tungsten ball at the end is running on a self-lubricating and absolute maintenance-free bearing point. The low-noise AC motor is supplied from an electronic motor drive unit. The output signal is generated completely independent from the mains power. With this you get much better wow/flutter and virtually no distortion from the mains power source. The four-kg, 24-mm thick platter is made of aluminum with a damping coating on the back side. To avoid any vibration, it is belt driven.
The TD 810 comes with a Thorens TP 300 tonearm mounted.
