THORENS presents new TD-102A turntable


THORENS is once again expanding its range and this time presents a fully automatic turntable for all vinyl enthusiasts in the form of the all-new TD-102A.

Besides the TD-148A and the TD-103A, the new TD-102A is the third full automatic in the THORENS family. Importer Penhold reports that:

‘it is the new entry into the fully automatic turntables of THORENS. The TD-102A opens a completely new chapter in the field of fully automatic turntables from THORENS. The newly developed mechanism of the TD-102A guarantees the lowest possible frictional resistance of all mechanical components. This player also comes with a newly developed carbon tone arm, including the pre-assembled AT VM95E moving-magnet element from Audio Technica, the successor to the AT 95E, known and loved by vinyl enthusiasts for many years. The switchable integrated phono preamplifier guarantees full connectivity with all modern audio systems’.

Finishing options

The TD-102A is available in two beautiful finishes, namely “black high gloss” or “walnut high gloss”. During the development phase, emphasis was placed on the typical THORENS design. High sound quality and a long lifespan complete the typical characteristics you’ve come to expect from THORENS for years,” says Penhold. Specifications THORENS TD-102A
