Turntables by Thorens
The TD170 clearly demonstrates that playing your records doesn't have to involve tweaking or time consuming adjustments. Simply forget all the technical matters and immediately bring your favorite music to life.
Designed for simplistic operation, the automatic function not only sets the needle on the record but returns it to its resting place at the end, shutting off the drive motor. Despite the simplistic attitude, there is real technology under the hood, where it belongs. A Thorens precision belt drive system and an electronically controlled DC motor system provide stable speed control including 33, 45 and 78 speeds! A proprietary low noise bearing system provides exceptional sonic performance and long life. The TD170 includes and Ortofon OMB10 phono cartridge for 33/45 RPM.
The TD170 has a distortion-free aluminum platter, tubular aluminum tonearm system with magnetic anti-skate system. Available in red, black or silver.
