I had an “incident” with my original Thorens plinth and as it turns out the Super plinth is different to the standard TD-160 so almost impossible to find second-hand.  So, I added a new plinth to my wishlist.

Well, one Birthday later and (courtesy of my Dad) here’s a new plinth in Oak from Russ Collinson at Layers of Beauty.


I drilled few pilot holes on the rear to mount the hinges for the lid and also tidied up the cables underneath to stop the possibility of them interfering with the suspension.  I used the original Thorens Super heavy base.

I’m really pleased with the plinth – the build quality and finish is excellent.  It looks great on the shelf, now I just need a new set of Proac speakers in matching Oak finish..
