Thorens TD-190 Automatic Turntable
The TD-190 is a perfect turntable for a second system or for a lazy audiophile. :-).
While my main system has a fully manual turntable which is wonderful for primary listening, my workshop has a fully automatic table which allows me to play records in the background without worrying about wearing out the record or cartridge.
Since this table is fully automatic, when the record is finished the arm will automatically lift and the table will shut off. If I get distracted and don’t realize the record has finished, it’s taken care of for me automatically.
Don’t be fooled by these great features, this turntable is a wonderful sounding machine from a legendary manufacturer. It can’t keep up with turntables many times it’s price.
The TD 190 was fully tested and serviced where it received a new drive belt and a brand new Grado black cartridge. The cartridge in the pictures has been replaced with the Grado.
On the top of the unit you will find controls to start and stop the machine, select the record size, and lift the tonearm up and down. You will also find a speed selector to select between 33, 45, and 78 RPM.
The condition of this turntable is wonderful and does not have any significant scratches, dents, or wear marks. All functions work as they should. The top dustcover does have a few scuffs and scratches but it’s very presentable.
