The performance similarly makes it easy to ignore the hi-fi capabilities and just enjoy the music.

The TD 148A handling treble, mid and bass with equal sensitivity and control.

The top-end is both sweet and clean, with plenty of detail easy to pick out. This is all presented with an appealing sense of poise and polish.

...the chorus of violins soars out into the room.

...thrilling sense of energy to the performance

...warmth and richness that's more commonly associated with far costlier rivals. There is just the right amount of overhang to every note to evoke the impression that you're listening to a real instrument in a believable acoustic.

...stereo images convincingly marshalled to the fore...taut handling of rock and pop music...is able to pick out deeper bass elements with apparent ease.

The TD 148A's excellent speed stability blesses it with an impressively secure sense of tunefulness. The bass guitar starts and stops with clean precision, while the woody resonance and richness of acoustic bass sounds entirely believable...the TD 148A is beautifully built.

LIKE: build quality; convenience; bass performance

    Product Information - NOW DISCONTINUED

    The Thorens TD 148A sets the standard for high level full automatic turntables in the market in technology and design. A high quality plinth, a precise glass platter and the new tonearm which is derived from our High End TP 92 prove this.

    Additionally there is still the classical belt drive, the very quiet running DC motor and a suspended “floating” chassis. 78 rpm are available for playing old shellac records. Instead of a fixed cable a pair of RCA Jacks allow usage of any cable you like for connecting the TD 148A to the amp. Ortofon's superb 2M Blue cartridge is preinstalled.
