I am building another highly modded and tricked out Thorens TD 150. It will have a solid, finger jointed, cherry plinth, which will be 1.5". At will have an extended arm board so that a wider choice of arms can be used. It will sport a Grace G940 tone arm, carbon fiber arm board and top plate and use an Origin Live motor for super stable performance. The table has extensive use of damping material to neutralize unwanted vibrations. I also have a NOS Adcom cartridge that will be mounted.
I'm just waiting on the plinth to be finished, which should be complete in a week or so. After this is will be assembled. It will be super nice but the price will most likely be around $2500, plus or minus 200. This one will top the last one I built, which now belongs to an owner who also has a VPI Direct Drive, $25,000. He really likes the table he got from me at 1/10 the price of his other spread and plays it regularly.
Picture will be forth coming as the build moves on.
