Thorens "New Reference" and Anniversary Edition of TD 124

One of the ultimate highlights of the High End audio show was the Thorens "New Reference" record player.

The elaborately made turntable for up to three tonearms comes with an active vibration suppression (learn more here), which is connected to a level meter and always optimally aligns the turntable, which includes a custom-fit console, horizontally. During the event, a monitor with measurement graphics showed the effectiveness of the technology. The price, which was only revealed at the press conference in Munich, is a staggering €220,000.

With around €12,000, the Anniversary version of the TD 124 DD was furthermore revealed, with which Thorens celebrates its 140th birthday and whose forefather was presented in 1957. The turntable comes with silver wiring for the J tonearm and a thick brass support for the platter. The scope of delivery includes the SPU pickup with MC-typical output voltage developed in collaboration with Ortofon.
