FS: Thorens TD160 Super with TP16 Isotrack tonearm and Denon103R Cartridge

Recommended Posts

Item Condition: Excellent Original Condition
Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.
Suburb or Town: Mitchelton
State: Queensland
Payment Method: Eft or Cash on Pickup
Reason for selling: Surplus to my needs

The Thorens TD 160 Super was the top end model of the 160 Series. This premium Thorens model was not manufactured in great numbers, in fact there's a business that creates these as reproductions from standard 160's.
  
For those who don’t know, what made the Super model the Super was a heavier platter, and a 'floating suspension' system. The platter and main bearing are supported on a secondary chassis which is spring-mounted to isolate it not only from the main case and external forces but also from vibrations of the motor. To preserve pickup/platter geometry, the pickup arm board is also mounted directly on to this sub-chassis. It also has internal dampening to benefit sound quality and a base cover. 

 

This particular TT is unmolested, with perhaps only the plugs replaced. I haven't used it regular for the last 3 years and it probably should be lubricated. A belt is provided and is still supple and should serve you for many years. 

 

It currently has a Denon103R fitted. I am happy to remove that if you want to save yourself some money. The cart has had less than 100 hours use.


Some minor imperfections do exist:

  • There are some small nicks in the particle board base a long one side, they are not visible from the front.
  • The lid needs a polish, but there are no deep gouges.
  • The hinges need some adjustment to hold the lid in place if opened beyond 90 degrees. 

 

Pickup preferred. For serious buyers I can demo the TT connected to a Weston Time Machine and a pair of Zu Audio Omen Bookshelf speakers.

 

Any questions, please feel free message me.

Hey Jay\David,

 

If the local interest is limited, I'd certainly consider postage\courier to Tassie if you were comfortable with the risk. I would pack it well, but there are risks none the less.

 

I actually had it posted to me originally and had no issues. It would be a considerable upgrade to your Denon TT.

      For sale is a pair of PMC MB2se speakers with stands (walnut finish).
       
      They are in mint condition and about a year old, bought locally in Melbourne.
       
      They go 20hz - 20Khz without subs and are relatively easy to drive (90db 1w 1m) but tend to like a bit of power (I’ve experienced benefits up to 1kw @8ohm per speaker).
       
      I have the  original boxes so shipping is an option. Beware they are rather heavy and big - 58kg each! and 17kg each for the stands.
       
      They can be tri-wired, bi-wires or single wire. 

      See the PMC website for specifications. https://pmc-speakers.com/products/consumer/se-passive-series/mb2-se

      These really are amazing speakers and will make someone very happy.

      Selling a pair of Michi M8 mono-block power amps.
       
      They are about 8 months old, and are in mint condition, and I am the first and sole owner, purchased locally. 
       
      Each mono block provides over 1080w into 8ohm and 1800w into 4ohm.

      I’ve been using the Michi’s to drive PMC MB2se speakers which they manage very very well - at no time is there any sign of strain, compression etc.

      The specs are available at the Rotel site here https://www.rotel.com.au/collections/michi
       
      I have the original boxes so shipping is possible but please not they are rather heavy (see the specs). It takes two people to lift one of the M8 power amps. 
       
      These amps are wonderful, and I’m confident that the buyer will be very pleased with their performance on any loudspeaker!

      Item Condition: used - excellent condition Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Tura Beach State: New South Wales Payment Method: Paypal F&F, EFT Reason for selling: Not being used. Downsizing and rationalising Further information:
       A classic am/fm tuner from Hitachi and the early '80s. It has their highly regarded FCCS (Field Condition Computer Servo) tuning system which optimises the signal for the best performance. It reviewed very well in Grammophone magazine but I can't locate a copy of the review. 
      As seen in the pics, it comes with original and complete packaging, instructions, and antennas, and I have included a basic rca lead with gold-plated plugs to get the new owner going.
      There are some marks/blemishes on the top cover unfortunately but they are not big dings and dents (see the pics).
      This one is silver finish. I have a bronze finish one as well which I am planning to list when I list the matching amplification in case anyone is looking for a matched set.
      Shipping with insurance is easily available with Australia Post at extra cost. I am open to discussing the total price including shipping.
