This record player is to achieve where others fail: in a self-evident kind it combines high-class technology with noble, unobtrusive elegance. It is neither hiding its functions nor imposing. The beautiful chassis finished in genuine oak veneer is adapting itself very well to its environment yet remains visible to everyone. A matchless teamwork of outstanding technology and stylistic harmony. In any case, the Thorens TD 240 keeps technically as well as sonically what its noble outfit is promising.
This record player features a precision-ground belt, an electronically controlled D/C motor and comes equipped with the high-grade tonearm TP 21. Owing to the increased mass respectively weight of 18.7 lbs as well as to the suspended chassis, the entire drive system runs extraordinarily smooth and thus supporting the exemplary sound.
The speed selector can be set to 33, 45 and 78 rpm and hence can be considered an interesting tool for all friends of vintage shellac records. 33 / 45 / 78 rpm, fully automatic, internal precision belt drive, suspended chassis design, 0.6 kg non-magnetic platter and total mass of 8.5 kg. Fitted with a high quality acrylic cover. A matchless synthesis of technology and style.
