Australian HIFI - - SOUNDBITES -

Thorens, now un­der new own­er­ship and based in Ger­many, has re­leased a new turntable, the TD 201. The new Thorens TD 201 belt­drive model comes with a Thorens TP 71 ton­earm which has a de­tach­able head-shell, en­abling easy car­tridge swaps. The head-shell pro­vided comes fit­ted with a pre-in­stalled Au­dio-Tech­nica AT 3600 phono car­tridge. The TD 201 has an in­te­grated (switch­able) phono stage so it can be con­nected to any am­pli­fier or re­ceiver or, if you’d pre­fer to by­pass the in­ter­nal cir­cuitry, to your own phono stage or to the in­put of an am­pli­fier or re­ceiver with a phono in­put.

‘ The new Thorens TD 201 is the right choice for any­one look­ing for a ro­bust, easy-to-use, plug-and-play turntable,’ said Gunter Kürten, Thorens’ new CEO and owner, who moved the com­pany’s head­quar­ters and man­u­fac­tur­ing to Ber­gisch Glad­bach, in Ger­many shortly af­ter pur­chas­ing the com­pany from its pre­vi­ous owner, Heinz Rohrer, who had pre­vi­ously moved the com­pany from Lahr, in Ger­many, to his home coun­try of Switzer­land.
