Spindr writes: "We will start production of the update for your original Thorens TD-124 player in a limited first edition. The original mechanism, motor and serial number will be re-used, so your iconic player will keep its beloved soul, and stay Idler-driven. Only 21 players will be hand-build in the Netherlands in this edition, 9 players in the 9 inch version and 12 in the 12 inch version. 

The upgrade includes: 

  • Integrated heavy deck and plinth, machined from a solid aluminum block, soft coated on the inside

  • Cast Iron, nickel plated motor mount on an aluminum baseplate, fully detached from the deck
  • Motor overhaul by a well-known Garrard and Thorens specialist

  • Wooden board for your tonearm
  • For our strobe we generate an independent 50 Hz frequency, so that it always flashes at a constant and fixed frequency
  • Dampening feet supporting the plinth

  • Each of the players will have a specific color, to be chosen by you
