Thorens TD 103 A Turntable with TAB 1600 Absorber Base (High Gloss Walnut)
The THORENS TD 103 A was specially developed for discerning
music lovers who do not want to do without the convenience of a fully automatic
machine. By adapting the surface finishes “black high gloss” and “walnut high
gloss”, it is possible to clearly represent the brand identity and thus the
values of high sound quality in connection with a long service life with its
typical THORENS design.
The proven TP 19-2 tonearm features the finest bearing
technology. The bearing play and the coefficient of friction have been
significantly reduced compared to its predecessor by using higher quality
bearings and the tonearm cables have been upgraded with a better design.
The now removable headshell is equipped with a 2M Red from
the Danish pickup specialist Ortofon. In addition, a high-quality cinch cable
is included, which is connected to the likewise new connection terminal of the

Thorens TAB 1600 Absorber Base for Turntables:
The Thorens TAB1600 Absorber Base was specially developed
for the improved installation of turntables. Made of a MDF base plate, which is
additionally attenuated by a layer of fabric, it is combined with an acoustic
foam in sandwich construction. This unique combination highly efficiently
decouples the turntable from its underground, so preventing acoustic feedback.
Contrary to the principle of coupling by spikes, which often can negatively
influence the sound quality by vibrational coupling to the ground, we use the
principle of decoupling in the TAB1600 to neutralize the negative impact of
structure-borne sound from the turntable.
