In 1883 St.-Croix Switzerland, Hermann Thorens established a small but potent manufacturing firm that specialized in musical boxes and movements for various devices. Around the same time in America, Thomas Edison’s latest creation, the phonograph, was gaining in popularity. Herman Thorens was quick to take notice and by 1903 he introduced a phonograph based on the Edison design. From the very start Hermann Thorens had an uncommon talent to create these mechanical devices with the ability to reproduce music with amazing fidelity. This became clearly evident to the world as the Thorens phonograph gained worldwide attention. For the years to follow Thorens and his engineers progressed the phonograph into a state of the art turntable. These turntables always seemed to be one-step-ahead of the competition and a lot of the technology we see nowadays is a direct result of Thorens efforts. Today, Thorens is still in business and they continue to produce state of the art turntables, although the crowning achievement of their very decorated past falls to the TD-124.

The TD-124 was originally introduced in 1960 with a production run till 1968. It set a new standard of excellence in transcription turntable performance, a standard many audiophiles believe is still unrivaled today. It was designed with an amazing degree of ingenuity and manufactured with extraordinary precision and care. It served as the transcription table of choice for many professional applications as well for the astute audiophile. Today the TD 124 is viewed as one of the iconic pieces from the golden age of audio and cherished by collectors and audiophiles world wide. Rotation is extraordinarily stable and quite. As you would expect it has extremely low wow & flutter and an almost non existent rumble. It features a heavy, accurately balanced two piece platter with clutch, 4-speeds, and a highly precise belt/idler drive system.

Above all the TD-124 is an amazing performer, with its performance maximized with the Lin Basik LV V tonearm and Grado G+ Cartridge. Sonically it is outstanding, its reproduction of the disc is effortless and natural. Its rotation is extremely stable and precise leading to its tremendous sonic purity. Some of the many highlights of this TD-124/Linn Basik LVV/Grado G+ include:


  • Linn Basik LVV Tonearm

    The Linn Basik LV V tonearm was introduced in the early 1980’s. It is a dynamically balanced tonearm with SME style removable headshell, adjustable overhang, lever- type cueing device, adjustable bias and ability to mount to any turntable. Sonically it is a great sounding tonearm. Detail, transparency and focus are excellent. It can be tuned to match a wide range of cartridges and associated components

  • TD-124 Ultra Precision Drive System

    the TD 124 drive system is unique and extraordinarily effective. It utilizes a flat rubber belt coupling the motor to a pulley which engages a rubber idler that drives the platter. This configuration promotes the most stable rotation and prevents any motor vibration from reaching the turntable via the drive.

  • 11 ½ lbs., 12” Platter with Separate Non-Magnetic Aluminum Shell Cover

    Precision crafted for absolute stability and effortless rotation.

  • Unique Clutch Assembly

    Allows you to quickly start & stop the top sub platter without stylus injury or reducing speed of bottom platter

  • Built-in Illuminated Stroboscope & Speed Adjustment Control

    allows accurate speed regulation

  • Removable/Interchangeable Tonearm Board

    for quick and easy interchange of tonearms

  • Plays 4 Speeds

    16 2/3, 33 1/3, 45, 78 rpm

  • Operates at Any Voltage

    from 100-250 V 50/60Hz

  • And Much More!
