direct drive plug-and-play turntables of the 400 series. Visually a true
Thorens, the new TD 403 DD features the same proven smooth-running direct drive
as the successful TD 402 DD, but sets itself apart from its smaller brother
with a more massive 1.4 kg and 22mm-thick Die-cast aluminum platter and the TP
150 audiophile tonearm also used in the new TD 1500 model.
A high-quality and pre-adjusted 2M Blue cartridge from
Danish cartridge specialist Ortofon is also supplied as standard. This proves

NEWLY DEVELOPED THORENS TP 150 TONEARM
The new TP 150 tonearm is also used on the newly introduced
Thorens TD 1500 model and is similar to the TP 124 used on the new TD 124 DD.
It has an effective mass of 14 grams, is adjustable in height and azimuth and
is equipped with a standard SME connector, so headshells can easily be switched
or other cartridges mounted.
The anti-skating is set by a sliding weight in the base of the arm, which is
adjusted on a nylon thread guided over a ruby bearing.
