  1. Thorens TD124 above. sn#13943.  Standing in heavy slate and on a minus k isolation base (model 150 BM-1)  The tonearm is Graham Engineering's model 2.2.  Cartridge is Shelter 501 type II.  Headweight in use.

other notes:  I have owned two other TD124 motor units over the past 9 years.  Sn 2729 (sold) and Sn 7888 (sold).  13943 is the one I keep and it will receive upgrades and updates in the future as I determine.  At this point everything I have learned about keeping a TD124 operating correctly can be seen and heard in this chassis.
