Thorens turntables and slide-mounting


Unregistered guest
I am considering a new turntable for my stereo system (Rotel amp, pre-amp, DVD-A; KEF 105 towers; and B&W center, surrounds, and sub).

I plan to rear-wall-mount a sliding drawer that will pull out of the stereo rack (will not be connected to the rack itself). (Rockler hardware Accuride series 3832 Slides, Zinc, 16'' length)

Any recommendations for dampening vibrations? Will slides simply rattle too much despite the weight of the shelf and turntable? If not, can the shelf that the turntable sits on be cherry hardwood? Can the under-pillars to the shelf (that the drawer slides mount to) be made of cherry also, or would MDF be a better choice?

I'm assuming that the turntable should have anti-vibration feet.

I'm considering a new Thorens turntable (295, 800, 810). Do you have opinions on Thorens in general, and these models in particular?

Would you recommend other turntables in this price category?

Thanks in advance !

i think its better to buy a good second hand Thorens TD 160 if you want the legendary quality.
the new "Thorens" models has nothing to do with the original (high quality) Thorens company.
it's the same name, but completely different factory.
