Wood with history....

The old oak wood is probably made from round wood that was felled in the Waldkirch district and stored in the "Sailerlenzen" yard. This farm was probably built around 1780-1800. This yard burned down in 1902 and the wood was then saved from the flames. In their first life, the "block planks" were the outer walls of old houses, they were mostly hewn by hand and are approx. 105-120 years old.

Pickup Ortofon VinylMaster Alpha:
With the VM series, Ortofon has long created the reference MM pickup, the long production time and the characteristic stylus body are well known all over the world. The VM Alpha is the entry into the series and is a super entry-level system for medium-priced turntables. The VM series from Ortofon is compatible with each other. So you can start with a VM Alpha and then improve the quality with the appropriate needle slot by using the next needle slot.

Audio cable:
brand cable. Ready-made analog audio cinch cable for wiring turntables! Thanks to the particularly high-quality inner conductor made of oxygen-free copper (OFC), this quality cable ensures natural signal transmission. Contact security and protection against corrosion is guaranteed by the 24 carat gold-plated plug contacts. The cable has a neutral sound with good dynamics and spatiality.

In five complex and time-consuming work steps, the turntable is polished to a high gloss.
The mirror finish gives your turntable a unique look. With surface sealing by a special protective coating against repeated tarnishing and for a long-lasting shine.

Chromed stainless steel spikes:
The chassis is equipped with height-adjustable spikes so that the turntable is decoupled from low-frequency vibrations. Resonance and feedback are thus effectively prevented.

record weight:
With a weight of 310g, it ensures that the record lies flat on the platter and runs smoothly. This record weight is in the middle "weight class. It builds up just enough weight to dampen the vibrations of the record without stressing the bearing bushes. The suspension of the Thorens sub-chassis has been readjusted accordingly. By using it, you increase the sound performance of your system.

Drive belt:
The drive belt is new. It is manufactured to the original Thorens specifications (same material and dimensions).
