The ST 104 plinth ST 104 is hand made from beechwood in Switzerland according to the original Thorens plans. Each plinth is a unique and valuable piece - no mass production templates are employed in their construction! The plinths are available in a finish of 4x varnished gloss black
Our "Solid Design" plinth was developed to satisfy demands for a massive plinth which could deliver real sonic improvements (NOT the case with many of the replacement plinths we've encountered, which are sonically detrimental to the TD 124's performance). Designed with full respect for the mechanical and aesthetic properties of the original Thorens plinth, it is visually indistinguishable from it once the chassis is mounted. The plinth is made from two-and-a-half layers of laminated, carefully aged and selected Swiss wood and finished with 8 coats of hand-finished, high-gloss varnish.
The new, further improved version of our decoupled tonearm board for the Thorens TD 124 is now available.
It is of laminate material with phoneloc resin, which is precision machined with a CNC milling machine. A professional car painter is doing black finish.
