|Thorens Turntable with Audio Technica cartridge|
The turntable is a Thorens TD 165C and a very well regarded then and now and now it is 35+ years old. EBay prices are anywhere from $150 to $350, with higher prices that include the dustcover ( $100 item if bought separately). A new Thorens is simply out of my league.
Here is a shot of the turntable playing a vinyl record.
Anyway, I am listening to the Doors at this moment and there is nothing like "Riders on the Storm in glorious" vinyl!
