I really didn't need a fifth turntable but I have always wanted a Thorens, Its a TD-145 which is same as a TD-160  but has auto lift with shut off at end of record. New belt, dustcover and armrest on the way. Looking into cartridge options if anyone has suggestions. Currently using a Shure M91-ED and it sounds really good but I think a better match might be out there.

does it worble?

Timing is a little off but I suspect that is due to a very worn belt. Once I got the alignment right, the soundstage really blossomed, and the sound floor is very low.

Looks like those bottles are filled with coke.😀 There are items posted in this thread at times, where a link to who makes it and its specs would be cool. So this is a 300B pre and a headphone amp,yes?  I see that it can be ordered as a kit, hand built?

Transcendent Sound "The Masterpiece" 300B OTL. Purchased from a seller on usaudiomart.  2015 build with a few upgrades.  Tubes are 2 Psvane 12au7s and 2 Shuguang Treasure Black Bottle 300B-Z.  THD less than 0.1%, gain 12db, SN 100 dBA.

Will be paired with an ATI 1502 (150 wpc) in a second system.  Listened to 3 CDs (John Lee Hooker, Sonny Rollins, Over The Rhine) yesterday and was PLEASED!
