Product Description

The Thorens TD 203 is a high quality out of the box solution from Thorens.

The turntable comes fully assembled and is factory-set. It takes no more than five minutes from opening the box to playing music from a vinyl record.

The TD 203 leaves aficionados room to fine-tune and adjust the performance to their personal preferences. The tonearm, for example, offers facilities to adjust azimuth and overhang. The pick-up cartridge can be easily changed in a matter of minutes. The scope of delivery includes a specially designed transparent Perspex dust cover.

The new Tonarm TP 82 is a uni-pivot design - a first in this class. The TP 82's bearing is a carbide tip resting within an intricate arrangement of five very small bearing balls. The arm tube is made from rolled aluminium. The anti-sakting bias is provided by a small weight. The tonearm comes pre-installed with the Thorens TAS-257 cartridge, a high-quality moving-magnet pick-up suitable for all MM phono inputs.

    The Thorens TD 203 is a decent and stylish turntable. The main problem is at around £500 it should have a better quality cartridge installed. Setting up was also tricky with getting the right settings on the height of the tonearm to lower comfortably on to the record. there was also hum from the cartridge area.
    I decided to change the cartridge over to a Grado Prestige gold 1 cartridge. This made all the difference in all aspects. The sound quality became clear and detailed. The soundstage became much more wide and revealing too. The hum had also disappeared. So all told a very decent sound.
    I would rather have a higher quality stylus installed and pay another £50 or £60 to start with.
    Bought on the strength of online reviews.
    To summerise it is a decent well constructed turntable. Install a high quality cartridge and it becomes an excellent sounding turntable.
