The TD 206 turntables is the younger sibling of the revolutionary, multiple-award-winning TD 309. However, it doesn't have to live in the shadow of it's older brother. The TD206 is built using only high-quality materials and parts, and shares a number of technical features with the TD 309, ensuring that their replay quality is up there with the best.
The new TP 90 tonearm is based on the tried-and-tested TP 92 and uses the same ultra-low-friction, high-performance bearing and the innovative zero-stiction anti-bias system. The arm tube is made from rolled aluminium that is damped using RMR technology (reduced-modal-resonance), and the stainless-steel counterweight at the end of the arm tube is double-decoupled. Tonearm height, azimuth and overhang are useradjustable.

I auditioned the Rega RP6 and Clearaudio Concept before deciding on the Thorens, I wanted a smooth sound with detail and partnered with the Clearaudio Concept MM cartridge it does it very well. The build quality is excellent. I would ditch the included phono cables, they introduced a lot of hum. The service from Analogue Seduction deserves special praise, they were brilliant and fitted the cartridge. All extremely positive.
