Thorens

The history of Thorens begins in Sainte-Croix in the Swiss Jura in 1883, when Hermann Thorens had the company entered in the commercial register. The purpose of the company is the manufacture of music boxes and musical works. In 1957 the era of turntables began, which brought the Thorens brand to world fame. In the 1990s, the company, like other record player producers, suffered tremendously from the pressure of the CD. Heinz Rohrer, a Swiss businessman, acquires the trademark rights and becomes Thorens owner. In April 2018, Rohrer sold the company to the former ELAC managing director Gunter Kürten due to a lack of succession planning. On May 1, 2018, the newly founded Thorens GmbH in Bergisch Gladbach commences business operations. hifi12a is authorized Thorens dealer.

Excellent belt driven turntable with the newly developed Thorens TP 150 tonearm. The TD 1500, which can be operated purely manually, has a sub-chassis that decouples the turntable and the tonearm from the motor and frame with three conical springs. These springs can be adjusted from above through corresponding holes in the platter, which makes correct adjustment much easier. The 1.4kg heavy and 22mm thick cast aluminum platter with polished surface rotates in a bearing with a Delrin bearing mirror, which ensures that it runs extremely smoothly. The speed of the 12V DC motor is electronically controlled by an incremental encoder and deviations are automatically corrected. This ensures very good wow and flutter values. In addition to the usual cinch sockets, the device also has XLR outputs, which enable real balanced operation with a suitable MC cartridge.

The TD 1500 is available in walnut high-gloss or black high-gloss. Delivery either a) without a cartridge, b) with a high-quality Ortofon 2M Bronze (MM pickup) or c) with the excellent in-house MC pickup Thorens TAS 1500.
