The Thorens TD 204 was developed for the audiophile beginner. A turntable with sound expansion potential for audiophiles. The surface finishes “black high gloss” and “walnut high gloss” fit seamlessly into the existing range with the typical THORENS design. The brand identity is underlined by the high processing quality and guarantees a long life like all Thorens turntables. The newly developed TP 120 tonearm impresses with its high-quality bearing technology. The bearing play and the coefficients of friction could be reduced to an astonishingly low level for the price class by using modern bearings. The TP 120 is a real 9 J-shaped aluminum tonearm with an effective tonearm mass of 15 grams. The visual similarity to the larger models TP 150 and TP 124 is obvious and promises first-class properties.

The detachable headshell with SME connector is equipped with an AT95E from the Japanese pickup specialist Audio Technica. The skating compensation is carried out via a spring.

The connection terminal on the back shows high-quality RCA sockets for a solid connection to the amplifier. An integrated MM phono pre (which can be switched on/off) enables direct connection to a high-level input.

The platter, which is precisely manufactured from die-cast aluminum, is set in rotation by a precision drive belt. The plinth of the TD 204 rests on four vibration-damping feet.
