  1. Item: THORENS TD166 MKII TURNTABLE Location: Canberra ACT Price: $600 ONO Item Condition: Superbly refurbished Reason for selling: Too many turntables! Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank transfer Extra Info: The TD166 is a Vintage classic 2 speed belt drive Turntable manufactured in the mid 1970's, completely refurbished in 2017. All electricals and bearing were checked, re-oiled and cleaned and a new belt installed. It's also has the external plinth replaced with a custom made plinth in Tasmanian Oak, simply beautiful. The original Perspex lid is in excellent condition with only very light scuffs (much less than you would expect for age). The original hinges have also been replaced. The Tonearm was checked and adjusted and the turntable is fitted with a Garrott Bros P77 cartridge which sounds great very detailed and dynamic. Sale includes the Thorens power supply (not pictured) and the original user manual. I would be pleased to demonstrate the unit for prospective buyers. I'd prefer local pickup on this one as I do not have the original box, but could be carefully packed and sent at buyers risk and expense.
  2. It's been an incredible never ending journey, too hell with the price.
  3. New turntable wall shelf to combat shaky old wooden floor.

    The rabbit hole just goes on and on. Welcome enjoy the site.
  10. The turntable is my completely rebuilt vintage Thorens TD 160 with TP16 tonearm and TP60 headshell running an Ortofon 2M Black cart. Also new custom face plate and custom plinth along with a new lift off cover (not shown). The speakers are gorgeous piano black Wilson Sophia 2's, and are a perfect match with the McIntosh MC75 valve mono blocks and C22 valve preamp.
