Come on people! It's sad there's no love on this forum for legendary vintage items like these.

@missmurphy @lowpoke

If I had the money I would have bought it. 

Especially because of the following: I started working in 1986 and started frequented hifi shops. A customer in a shop took pity on me and sold me a used TD124 (without a plinth) with a new belt for $40!  Even then I thought it was a bargain.

Dumb as I was it went to the tip in 1992 when I replaced it with a Rotel 😢, which is worth about $200 now.

Anyway GLWTS.

You couldn't pick a worse time to be unloading vintage gear.

Xmas and New Year are always traditionally slow times for Classies, and school holidays and public holidays are just as bad. Plus you have every other man and his dog clearing out their garages (time on their hands at last) and selling the contents. Combine any of the two and you have a perfect storm of over-supply, and lack of serious buyers.

 

Point: it's not necessarily the gear or the prices, if it's in January.

WoW.. we've got one member who admits to giving his hi end Swiss watch a one way trip to the tip and forking out a couple of hundred crispies for a new Loris off the rack from the local chemist store and another who want's to share all the reasons why he or others may not be able to afford it today.

 

If you want a well preserved, all original TD124.. it doesn't care what time of the year it is... and it won't wait until next Christmas to find a new home.

 

Some of us struck hardest with the little known, but commonly suffered medical condition, "Audiophiliosis" don't have kids, or a family, or a life worth writing home about over Christmas.. and some people are retired and are finally in the position to treat themselves to their ultimate turntable to spend their sniveling, entitled offspring's inheritance on.

 

A well respected TD124 can be perfect company right throughout MANY a year !

 

Every sale only needs one buyer who sees the value in what is on offer, has always wanted something particular and feels now is the time to pull the trigger.

It obviously didn't sell on day one.. (It is still available as far as we can all tell) but the high quality items often take some extra financial consideration..Please correct me if I'm wrong.

 

Who here WOULD like to buy an original Thorens TD124 in the original 60yo box with a couple of original spare/replacement parts in very good original condition ..?

I would buy it but then i would have two 124's and 3 TT's in total.  In enough strife already but this is surely a fine buy in this condition and at the give away price.

 

My restored 124 Mk2 /SME 3009/ Orotfon Credenza black beats out my tricked out Rega P9 / RB1000 with Ortofon Jubilee. Thats how good these tables are!

      I have FIVE Fanless Roon Rock Boxes for sale.
       
      All totally silent with SSDs running the latest version of ROON ROCK
       
      Small enough to fit on a bookshelf and use far less power than a full PC or laptop so you can really leave them running. 
       
      Your wife/girlfriend/dog/cat wont even notice.
       
       
      3x WYSE Zx0 
      (2 Units) 8GB + Ethernet + Wifi $120 ea

      These SSD sizes are more than adequate to hold the ROON database because with ROON your music is stored elsewhere.
       
      Priced fairly these are an excellent way to get started with ROON.
       
      Reasonable offers considered. Discounts for multiple purchases or pickup.

      Item Condition: Brand New - still in the box
      Reason for selling: Change of financial situation
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: 
       
      Pure Class A  2x35 Watt PSET (Parallel Set) which is used in the very high end tube
      amplifiers like Aries Cerat $30K USD. This gives you uncompromising power to run in pure class A almost any 89+ db speakers.  Lack of power is Achilles weak spot of most tube amplifiers and I believe PSET is the best solution used by the very high end manufacturers. Legendary Mastersound brand - makes PF100 tube amplifier $50K USD. Fabulous musical EL34 tubes. To my knowledge, this model is absolutely the best value for integrated tube amplifier in that price range; made in Italy but priced similarly to comparable Chinese models. Includes very good phono pre-amplifier - same as in the flagship models.  This is Box R version with remote control (cost $330 AUD extra).

      Item Condition: Excellent, Used
      Reason for selling: New Project/Custom Build
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
      This is a complete custom build from the ground up based on a Rega P series design. Raw cost of materials and items was over $6000.
       
      Plynth milled from single block of billet alloy on CNC router (around 15kg) Finished in red automotive paint Followed same dimmensions as a Rega P3 plynth. 5x Maglev feet (tried with 3, 4 and 5 configurations and 5 was the best) IsoKinetic IsoDrive Power Supply with 33/45 speed selection IsoKinetic 25mm Acrylic Platter IsoKinetic IsoSub Groovetracer Machined Subplatter IsoKinetic Phosphor Bronze Bearing Sleeve IsoKinetic Ruby Bearing + Spindle Oil (lifetime supply left in bottle) IsoKinetic Puck/Stabiliser IsoKinetic Red Thing Silicone Belt + Spare New One in Packet IsoKinetic MTB-D Motor Thrust Bearing + Motor Isolation Mod for Premotec Motor Premotec 50hz Synchronous Motor Audiomods Series 4 Tonearm with Series 5 bearing, lift and arm hold. Full VTA Adjustment - no VTA adjuster.  All original weights and headshell weights/spacers included to adjust to any cart. Custom Acrylic Dust Cover to accomodate arm height No cart included, but I did have an Ortofon MC25e on it and it was stunning.  
      *I have covered the hole bottom left corner where a power button would have gone if I didnt use the external motor PSU and controller with a samurai silver coin from WA mint. So the turntable is dubbed "The Samurai"
       
      For interstate buyers, it will be professionally crated and foam lined for shipping with tonearm back in original transport box. Shipping Australia wide with insurance included.
       
      For those that want to know where to from here - my next build will be in the similar vein...but using the MK6 Audiomods tonearm for primary, 200mm monster delrin platter,  ceramic bearing sleeve, larger billet plynth with 2 armboards for future arm addition and external motor and controller.
