Visually a true Thorens, the new TD403DD features the same proven smooth-running direct drive as the successful TD402DD, but sets itself apart from its smaller brother with a more massive 1.4 kg and 22mm thick Die-cast aluminum platter.
The new TP 150 tonearm has an effective mass of 14 grams, is adjustable in height and azimuth and is equipped with a standard SME connector, so headshells can easily be switched or other cartridges mounted.
The anti-skating is set by a sliding weight in the base of the arm, which is adjusted on a nylon thread guided over a ruby bearing.
A high-quality and pre-adjusted 2M Blue cartridge from Danish cartridge specialist Ortofon is also supplied as standard. This proves to be an adequate playing partner due to its naked diamond with elliptical stylus.
