Thorens TD 160
How long you use it?
Twenty years
Did you tried many other models before buying it?
Yes, turntables Sanyo, Lenco, Philips, Technics, Numark, Revox tangential.
What is so special that you love the most, least?
Most: its stability, the sound fidelity and power EXCELLENT. No noise, easy adjustment, regularity and reliability of the engine torque / belt, manufacturing quality.
The least: no detection of the end disk (but I later added a small plastic box Thorens to raise the arm at the end of disc).
How would you rate the quality / price?
20 years ago, I had paid the equivalent of 150 euros. For me it is a very good price / quality ratio given its longevity. I changed 2 times the needle, a single belt (daily use).
With experience, you do again this choice? ...
YES, eyes closed.

I have this deck since I n at least my father used it and he gave it to me for 45 laiguer tr mode it works on mine the only problem is its a bit long introduction I think if your deck does not pass in 45 tr it's just that your belt slips and given that the tray is heavy res it does not catch enough to start

Thorens TD 160
Hello, I am looking for a template of type "protactor" for a TD160 with TP16 arm and pen holder TP60.
I printed that of "", respecting the odds AA '(140 mm) and BB' (200 mm), making sure the dimension 215.6 mm between the pivot arm and central plateau.
On after the feature of "Thorens" the overhang should be 14.4 mm, but the "protractor" I have a good scale prints, there is 18 mm. Is this normal? Could someone explain to me my error or confirm my statements. Thank you SCR

Not too many problems to solve this malfunction.
Must be uncoupled from the clutch axis of the engine, with a mild scouring product for the double clutch pulley that is nylon. Reassemble everything, change the belt, remove the tray, and then under the Palteau and clean the shaft of it, always with degreaser. Do not insert anything into the landing where the axis of the plunge in platetau, clean as this one and lubricate with oil or Thorens 10 W 40 new.
Have a look at the following two sites: and
These are sites dedicated to Thorens.
Good review.

I craqu for this board yesterday after noon on a clearance sale. I trust the guy who proposed it: it looked OGLA and 7 bins vynils In parallel he proposed was in perfect tat: I thought the guy was m ticuleux ...
Installation was pass without worry. The grip of the device is simple: a 33/45 button that turns on the camera, a mechanical arm with lever button and that is all!
The model I purchased has to be the 1st version, the one with a wooden base.
I like to test first with a 33 rpm, and my 1st t raction was "whaou what sound !!" ... I who for several years Ruins ears by listening plethora of poorly encods Mp3 files, I saw myself Adi rediscover my entire record collection of "when I was small" with a true sound "vintage" .dropoff window
Unfortunately, I soon dchant ... The deck does not turn 45 rpm! Finally, it rotates, but the speed of 33 rpm.
By removing the plate, I could s'levait checks to see if the belt correctly in position 45 rpm tray but the speed does not change. I also tried "to begin" by running a little plateau but nothing happens ...

If someone has an idea, she is welcome!

Thank you for your help
