Non-magnetic Cast Iron Main

Platter for Thorens TD 124

Non-magnetic Cast Iron Main Platter for Thorens TD 124

 

Material :      Ni-Resist T2 (proprietary produced) precision machined

Finishing :     Black cataphorese coating 18 microns 

                      Yellow / black stroboscope ring (33/45/78 T)

Batch :           Series numbers engraved

Weight :         5.5 kg / 12.1 lb

Origin :          100% Swiss Made

 

Ready for replacement of the original (ferromagnetic) main platter, using only a screwdriver. Don't forget to readjust the stylus pressure (there is no any magnetic attraction now...) !  You can use any kind of cartridge including moving coil cartridges, even the ones with the most powerful magnet assemblies.

 

Eliminates magnetic attraction and interference between cartridge and platter, maintains high mass and damping of the original platter (platters in aluminum, bronze and stainless steel will resonate like bells and should be avoided).

 

The audible difference is quite incredible. This is a really major upgrade of your Thorens TD 124 MK I or MK II :

Aluminum Replacement Upper Platter for Thorens TD 124

Aluminium Replacement Upper Platter for Thorens TD 124

 

 

Material :      Aluminum hard alloy precision machined

Finishing :     Outer surfaces fine-grinded

Weight :        0.46 kg

Origin :         100% Swiss Made

 

Ready for replacement of the original upper platter, using a screwdriver only (recycle the single adaptor wheel from your old upper platter)

 

Our precision upper platter is built in fourteen distinctive operations instead of two used for the original platter. This gives a far better flatness, less wow and results in the best sound image stability possible. After many tests with different alloys, our choice is an extra hard aluminium alloy which avoids phase shift and reproduces therefore an extremely three-dimensional soundstage even with monaural recordings. The sound is much more dynamic with lower distortion

P MINI SERIES - PHONO COMPONENTS

PPP Phono Step-up transformer

 

Hashimoto HM-3 or optional HM-X Step-up transformers, wired on order for low impedance (about 3 Ohm) or medium impedance (about 12 Ohm) MC- cartridges, combined to direct cabling, bring the worldwide highest possible sonic level to you.

 

HM-3 / HM-X  --  Gain..............…………………………………………...................26 dB (12Ω) or 32 dB (3Ω)   /  23 dB (12Ω) or 29 dB(3Ω)

   

HM-3 / HM-X  --  Bandwidth……………………………………........….................15 Hz to 50 kHz +/- 1 dB  /  15 Hz to 100 kHz +/- 1dB

 

 

PP Phono Preamplifier with Passive RIAA Equalizer

 

Coming directly out from our V.S.O.P. integrated amplifier, the operational amplifier is fed by an external 24 V DC power supply, backed by high cap/low ESR onboard Elna capacitors, thus enhancing signal-to noise ratio and sound quality.

 

Input- sensitivity for use with MM cartridges………………………………...................5 mV (Output 1V at 1kHz)

Input- impedance for use with MM cartridges ……………………………................…47 kΩ

Optional for use with high output MC cartridges……………………………...............2,5 mV (Output 1V at 1kHz)

Input- impedance for use with high output MC cartridges ……………...............1 k Ω

 



Historic 8910 - Mono Phono Preamplifier

 

This versatile mono phono preamp addresses the discerning music lover. Records of all eras, including shellac records, can be easily equalized historically and musically in a simple way.

R.S. MONO - Monophonic Solid State Amplifier

If you need more power to drive medium efficiency loudspeakers, without giving up the radical fidelity of Swissonor tube amps, this item is for you.

 

The monophonic design using a huge toroidal transformers enhances an ultra sober design, composed of a single chip OPA, without any intermediate stage. It has not only the same dimensions as our Mini-series, but completes perfectly the Swissonor P passive preamplifier.

 

The rugged construction on a cast iron mainframe with decoupling elements translates the Swissonor philosophy into the universe of solid state technology :

 

  • Extremely compact design

  • Design eliminates impedance and gain mismatch and reduces the number of active circuits.

  • Separate ground wiring together with central ground connection and ground lift for best signal purity and low hum and noise.

  • Oversized toroïdal transformer resin sealed in black anodized aluminum housing

  • Single 3886 OPA power amplifier

  • High quality components all around, very long life low inductance capacitors, and double layer gold plated PCB boards.

 

Specifications: Integrated amplifier 

 

  • Output power ..........................................................50 Watt/channel into 8 Ω or 60 Watt/channel into 4 Ω

  • Input impedance .................................................... 330 kΩ

  • Input sensitivity………….............................................800 mV

  • Power bandwidth.................................................... 5 Hz to 50 kHz +/- 2 dB

  • Dimensions d x w x h ………………………………………......160 x 125 x 140 mm
