Description

With the parts supplied with your order, as well as the expert videos and advice Vinyl Nirvana offers, the goal is to help you convert your present 16X or 14X turntable into a Super “Reproduction” model.

Thorens introduced the TD160 Super in 1982. It was in essence a standard TD160 mkII but with the following features:

  • a heavier and larger plinth
  • damping material applied to the underside
  • heavier bottom plate
  • typically offered with a non-Thorens tonearm
  • a cleaner top plate design (without a cueing lever hole)

Using the Customize your Thorens process, we will help you to add these things to you existing 16X or 14X model, bringing your turntable to a whole new level of beauty and performance.

Note: Owners of 14X models with auto-shut off should seek a qualified professional to defeat and circumvent the auto-shut off.
