Thorens Prestige with SME V

The Prestige is, together with the Thorens Reference, one of the two classic non-plus-ultra turntables manufactured by Thorens. The Prestige was an anniversary model where all the knowledge and experience within Thorens came together in this state-of-the-art turntable. The Prestige is built to the highest standards and with its 55kg combines the best virtues of mass turntables with the renowned Thorens belt drive floating chassis system.

The Prestige can accommodate two tonearms. In this offering it comes with the SME V tonearm. Furthermore we offer this combination with an original spare motorunit, two new additional armboards and a spare belt. The original box for the SME V and the manual for the Prestige are also available. Price for this no compromise turntable combination is 17.900 euro.
