The THORENS TD 105 semi-automatic, high-fidelity turntable incorporates advanced technical features to afford true state of the art performance. It employs a special THORENS suspension system for the floating chassis and an exclusive Isotrack tonearm with precision bearing assembly and low-mass construction which enables optimum tracking characteristics to be realised with modern pickup cartridges. The TD 105 also employs a velocity sensitive electronic shut-off which raises the tonearm, returns it to it's rest, and stops the motor.
