the latest and improved version of the platter is available now
SWISSONOR main platter - indispensable when using MC systems such as Ortofon SPU or similar models.
Please read below the manufacturer's description:
|Material||:||Ni-Resist T2 (proprietary produced) precision machined|
Black cataphorese coating 18 microns
Yellow/black stroboscope ring (33/45/78 T)
Batch- an series numbers engraved
|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 not
anymore any magnetic attraction...)! You can use any kind of pick-up included moving coil cartridges, even the ones with the most powerful magnet assemblies.
Avoids magnetic attraction and interference between cartridge and platter, maintains high mass and damping of the original platter (platters in aluminium, bronze and Inox 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 :
