The iconic Reference from Thorens is the classic non-plus-ultra turntable manufactured by Thorens. This state-of-the-art turntable is increasingly rare to find in a good preserved condition. Only 104 units have been manufactured. The Reference is built to the highest standards and with its 90kg combines the best virtues of mass turntables with the renowned Thorens belt drive floating chassis system.
The Reference can accommodate three tonearms. It comes with the very special and rare SME 3012RG Gold tonearm and the Wheaton TriPlanar MKVI Ultimate. The third armboard is uncut, but several armboard are supplied with this turntable. Furthermore the original dustcover in excellent condition is also included in this offering. But please note that when the SME 3012RG is mounted correctly the dustcover will not fit due to the length of the 3012. The Reference is in original condition with only the weak aspect of the original design being improved, i.e. the power supply. A cusom made improved external power supply is included.
This turntable was “one family owned” and originates from the son of the first owner. Including 4 transit bolts. Price for this rare to find analog combination is 41.900 euro.
