FS: THORENS TD-165 Turntable

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

ITEM: THORENS TD-165 Turntable


LOCATION: Wynnum, Brisbane


CONDITION: Overall running well but has occasional drop out issue due to worn tonearm socket for headshell (pins on headshell have stretched their sockets on tonearm). Will probably need a new arm unless there is a way of fixing it. Other than that, it is physically great and well maintained and has new custom made acrylic lid. Ex-University of Qld Music and this is etched on front alum plate near cueing switch RH side.


DESCRIPTION: Selling this turntable on behalf of non-internet savvy friend who can’t afford a new arm for it. Currently has Stanton 500-II cart on it. Is well serviced and had new RCA cable fitted not long ago. Sounds great but has an intermittent channel drop out which is likely caused by stretched headshell pin sockets in tonearm. A clever person may have a simple fix for this, or you may just want to put an upgraded arm on it.


REASON FOR SELLING: Not sure how to fix tonearm issue and owner does not want to buy new tonearm for it.


PRICE: $500$450  $400


PAYMENT METHODS: Cash on pick-up, Paypal.


EXTRA INFO:  Close to being a great turntable with a bit more TLC.  PS. I am also selling an SME 3009 Series III arm on SNA, which would probably be a good match on this deck.

      Item: Graham Slee Accession MC
      Location: Lane Cove, NSW
      Price: $1300 for pick up, $1350 for postage within Australia inc. insurance
      Item Condition: Excellent
      Reason for selling: Upgraded
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal
      Extra Info:
      As you can see from the photos this unit is in immaculate condition and comes with all the original packaging. It was purchased brand new from Wyndham Audio in June 2018 and was in use for about 12 months. I am selling purely because I decided to upgrade a few months ago.
      The Accession MC provides four different input impedance settings (500, 300, 100 and 75 ohms). It also has several different EQ settings which are easily switchable from the front panel - RIAA which is the standard for most records, American & British which caters for the NAB & FFRR standards used in the 40s and 50s and also CA/Flat (which is what the record sounds like without any equalisation after the Accession has applied its cartridge equalisation). For further info on this I suggest going to the GS website  https://www.hifisystemcomponents.com/phono-preamps/accession-mc-phono-preamp.html
      I have also included a screen shot of the specs with the photos below.
      I have owned a few different Graham Slee units over the years and they never fail to impress, to say they punch weigh above their weight is a massive understatement. I honestly have no idea how they manage to create such wonderfully detailed and authentic sound that is utterly transparent for such a reasonable price and in such a tiny package.
      If you would like to read a detailed review of this unit please go here:
      If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch and I'll try to answer to the best of my ability.
