Thorens, the Swiss manufacturer of turntables, needs little introduction to those that have been around long enough to watch the rise, fall, and rise once more of vinyl and turntables.

Founded in 1883, it's fair to say they know just a bit about how best to spin vinyl records and permit the extraction of every little detail from deep within the groove.

So that's all the more reason to consider a Thorens turntable if you're in the market right now for a record player. Specialist retailers, Sydney Hi-Fi in Castle Hill are running a clearance sale right now across its range of Thorens turntables, with in some cases thousands of dollars off the regular retail prices.

For example, the Thorens TD 350 Turntable usually is $5,999, but right now you can pick one up for just $3,250 in Maple or Rosewood finish, minus the tonearm or cartridge.

Equipped with the proprietary Thorens IDD (Independent Double Damping) suspension system, together with the 4-kg-platter and low-friction bearing the results is incredibly silent running and exceptional sonic stability. 

Or the Thorens TD209 in gloss black might be the choice if you're looking for a more affordable, contemporary style. Normally $1,899, right now it can be yours for just $1,450 but there's only one available, and it comes supplied with Thorens' TP 90 tonearm featuring Japanese precision bearings.

Whether you're just getting into vinyl for the first time or whether you've got your sights set on an upgrade, give the Thorens clearance sale a once over before it's all gone.
