Thorens TD 1600 combines the brand's tradition of the past with 21st century's technology. Externally quite similar to former famous 160 series with classical wooden plinth, two-part platter with inner belt and thick rubber mat, arm board and acrylic dust cover, it contains a lot of innovations inside.
The conical springs for sub chassis are not mounted on top board any longer but standing on the bottom. Additionally, a small but strong tightened thread made of steel connects sub chassis with a steel pin on the bottom and so prevents sub chassis from staggering and allows only vertical movement. A powerful control unit takes care of motor speed.

Brand description - Thorens
Thorens is a Swiss manufacturer of high-end audio equipment and best known for its wide range of high-quality, versatile turntables. Over time, Thorens has also produced harmonics and even automatic lighters, but now it is sound equipment and primarily gramophones that are in the product portfolio.
The family firm Thorens was founded back in 1883 in St. Croix, Switzerland and started producing music boxes and watches. Later in 1903, Thorens started producing phonographs of the Edison type and in 1928 Thorens produced their first electric gramophone (engine-driven). Later in the 1950s and 1960s, Thorens made a number of audiophile recorders, which are still known today as high-end audio products and highly sought after by collectors and audio enthusiasts.
Today, Thorens makes popular record players in all price ranges and has recently won an EISA award for their critically acclaimed stylish TD 309 gramophone
