Meticulous revisions

Each of the offered TD 124 turntables went through a very elaborate and meticulous complete revision. “Riverside Audio restored” means not “a drop of oil here and there and installing some pretty looking shiny parts”. It rather means that each table for a full-restoration undergoes extensive and elaborate processes, done by skilled people who know Thorens. Each restoration is also followed by measurements and a long trial period under normal listening conditions.

Each full restoration starts with disassembling the complete motor unit down to the bare chassis
