A true classic turntable in every sense of the word! We have here a Thorens TD-145 Turntable in good condition. I always wanted one of these but find that I use my ELAC Miracord more so this one doesn’t get much use and I would prefer it to go to someone that can really appreciate it and put it to good use. It is basically a TD-160 model since the auto stop only functions about 3/4 of the time depending the record (always very finicky on these models and difficult to adjust) but otherwise in very good condition. Included with Shure M55E cartridge with almost new black diamond nude elliptical stylus (worth $150 by itself). These turntables were highly regarded in their day and still are but are getting harder to find. Most examples in this condition will be considerably more money. Plinth is in very good condition (many are falling apart), base plate has only light scratches, dust cover is broken on left side near hinge but fully operational (no hinge repair required), and it has a genuine Thorens headshell (a very rare and expensive item). I have installed a new Thorens belt and filled the oil well with fresh oil for turntables. I removed the safety clip to make removing the inner platter easy but will include it.

Comes with Shure M55E cartridge, dust cover, original Thorens mat and new extra mat, and new stylus overhang gauge.

Asking $395 for quick sale. Would be interested in trade for a Marantz 5220 or 5020 cassette deck.
