    Can anyone recommend someone to work on a classic Thorens turntable. Has the void left by Dave from Vinyl Nirvana’s retirement been filled? Thx!

    They are quite straightforward.
    Arms are easy to fit.
    Suspension easy to set up.
    Plinths are plentiful.
    Motors and powersupplies are available.
    One mod I swear by is to use standard
    Screened wire to connect to sockets on rear of plinth.
    The complete amount of freedom
    Allows for a Superb bounce.
    Good luck
    Roksan Nima an excellent choice for a tonearm yey no one ever considers it.

    Look for a service engineer familiar
    With Linn LP12.
    Don't be afraid to to specify changes
    You would like.
    I fitted an SME 111s tonearm and Linn
    ASAK which has been retipped.
    To my TD150.
    It really sings, yet some will say the 111s was not SME's finest moment.
    When I heard this arm I was simply baffled by the negative reaction to it.
    Of course people base their remarks
    On hearsay.
    Listen to any combination you can.
    You may be pleasantly surprised
