A classic turntable in every sense - no arm fitted so you can choose to use your favourite depending on fitting etc., needs a little TLC but could be made to look and sound as good as new or perhaps even better.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS TURNTABLE WILL BE SOLD AS SEEN FOR SPARES OR REPAIRS
The Thorens TD 150, an inconspicuous small turntable that was manufactured for the first time in Germany and was offered much cheaper than the TD 124, was the origin of a technical revolution in turntable construction. For the first time, a suspended subchassis using cone springs with an inner platter driven by a flat belt was used in a high-volume machine. The principle has proven to be very successful and has found many imitators in the years since. The TD 150 came as standard with the tonearm TP 13, from 1969 the TD 150 Mk II with the TP 13a, also known as "ball arm". Countless variants with other tonearms were added and still exist in large numbers. All subsequent models until the mid-1980s kept the principle of the suspended subchassis with conical springs, which was used here for the first time.
