STS writes: “You are viewing an extremely rare possibly one of a kind Thorens TD124. We have restored this unit to perfection. Many of the parts are one of a kind , not found on any other Thorens TD124. The chassis itself weighs 5 pounds and is apparently from a sand casting process, not the standard mould Thorens used. Many differences from a serial production TD124 are noted. We have this rare piece in our collection here at STS TURNTABLES. The worlds leading Thorens TD124 experts have seen this table and have also remarked that they have not seen one like it before !

Shown equipped with an early pre serial first run and also rare SME 3009 series one tonearm on  an era correct thick oiled Black Walnut armboard. A truly rare Thorens turntable!

We assumed this was an ordinary early production TD124 when we first acquired the unit , then once in our shop we noticed some distinct differences in it’s construction and began investigating. We can find no other TD124 like this unit.”
