Hi Steve

Thank You for Your interest in our activity. I am Rolf Kelch former product

Manager of the bankrupt Thorens production company here in Lahr, Germany.

After the bankruptcy I decided to serve all spare parts, production parts, any

Thorens service information and archive material. I bought it all from Lahr`s

bank and I founded my own company, Rolf Kelch Electronic GmbH, D-77933 Lahr,

tel: +49 7821 90740.

First we did service for Thorens turntable owners. Spare parts, repair and

restoration. Later on ideas became true. I created upgrades for classic Thorens turntables. TD

126, TD 320 ( Tom Jung was the one, bringing me to this idea ), TD 125....

but there was another dream to realize....

The realization of the Reference II, showed on Frankfurt High End 2002 and

London AV Expo 2002. We are in close cooperation with van den Hul, Netherlands

to realize this analog dream.


We are able to deliver very many spare parts all around Thorens, worldwide. A

new web site is under construction, contacts are possible under:

Tel: + 49 7821 907411, Fax: + 49 7821 42209

email: rolf.kelch@t-online.de


In the attachments to  this mail You can see some pictures of upgraded Thorens

Classics ( and our Reference II ), we do for customers. You see, no upgrade

is similar to another. Basic ideas for performing the maximum in sound and

outfit in customers wish...that's our goal.

best analog regards

Rolf Kelch
