Thorens TD 125 MK I

Two series of the Thorens 125 were made by EMT in Lahr, Germany.: the MK I and MK II. Following the legendary TD 124 (with the interlude of the smaller model TD 160), the TD 125 was the next "state of the art" turntable.

The series TD 125 were costly to produce, with a cast metal chassis. Like the TD 124, the customer could choose the tonearm.

There were also other versions for example with SME 9 inch tonearm or the model "LB" for 12 inch tonearms. This is an MK I oder MKII model with a longer chassis for the mount of matching tonearmboards.

We believe it to be one of the best tables produced by Thorens Germany, and have therefore decided to provide a  rebuilding and restoration service to SCHOPPER standards.

The table is given a new wooden plinth made to our specifications in Switzerland. Available in American walnut.

The entire electronic system is restored to factory specifications, and all electrical and mechanical parts adjusted according to the factory service manual. A turntable that has stood the test of time for 40 years needs no 'modifications'.

For MK I tables with a TP 25 tonearm, we restore the arm, install and adjust the customer's choice of  cartridge .and supply a diedicated, hard-wired Swissonor phono cable with gold plugs. We also install a shielded AC power cord. All tables are then given a two-week run-in and test period.

The Thorens TD 125 is a turntable classic still sounding better than most new tables sold today!

All work comes with a one-year guaranty.

No shipping! - pickup in Winterthur only.


Price for  MK I: starts at CHF 2750.--

Gegen einen Aufpreis kann das Schwingchassis festgesetzt werden. Hier bei kommen die bewährten "Mushrooms" (Gummientkoppler) vom Thorens TD 124 zum Einsatz. Die Höhe des Chassis lässt sich immer noch justieren. Klanglich kann das noch zusätzliche Verbesserungen bewirken.
