Bought in 1979 and still working: Great reliability and quality. We are talking about quality hardware here, its musical characteristics are excellent and still very good compared to a CD ;-)
I changed the belt twice, due to wear and tear.
I replaced the cartridge with a Shure M95EDM, which suits me better. The original cartridge wasn't anything special, anyway.
I had other turntables before this one, but once I got my Thorens I never changed it.
I must say that I started listening less to vinyls with the arrival of the CD, but I still have a good vinyl collection of albums that were never published in CD format and that I still listen to with pleasure.
The pros: Reliability, musicality, look (deliciously '80s), spare parts still available.
The cons: Very sensitive to movements, despite its suspended heavy platter.
