Item Condition: Good Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Melbourne State: VIC Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: NLR Original one owner Swiss made Thorens TD-160 with Thorens TP-16 tonearm (no cartridge included).
Table & arm exhibit no issues and operate very smoothly.
Factory dust cover is included, however it suffered a fracture on one side near the hinge and was repaired in a less than ideal manner.. it does however fully function for it's intended purpose, although the table looks and sounds better without it 😉
Please be gentle with me! I'm unsure as to where to post this, as I'm seeking some advice as to the value of some 70's/80's hifi components that my father-in-law has asked me to help him sell.
EDIT - I'VE DONE A DEAL WITH MY FATHER-IN-LAW AND THE GEAR IS NOW OFFICIALLY MINE
I've searched that auction site, Gumtree and a number of forums' sales areas. The values vary a lot, and several of the components I can only find very limited listings for.
I have heaps of photos, videos, etc. I inspected each component yesterday to see how they worked, however I'm no expert.
The items cost quite a lot of money originally, and the deck and tonearm in particular seem to be highly sought-after.
Thankyou in advance!
Item Condition: New Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Sydney State: New South Wales Payment Method: Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Further information: Thorens TD 190-2 Turntable as new still in box. Purchased back in 2015 (see photos). Item sold as is. It’s still disassembled if you are interested in buying you are welcome to assemble it on site to make sure its functioning as it should.
I would appreciate some advice from members who have owned or currently own the Garrard 401.
1) Does the original idler wheel need upgrading? The one in my unit looks good and does not shown any wear when I run my finger around it.
When I powered it up, it ran smoothly at the speeds and speed was spot on when measured with my Allnic strobescope.
2) Are there significant gains (if any) by upgrading to an after market idler wheel such as Audio Silente or others?
This TT is in such good original condition that I am loath to do any unwarranted modifications.
3) Are there any recommendations for feet for the plinth?
4) Not sure whether it is worth the investment from something like still points. Is there anyone using them on a Garrard?
