About the Thorens TD 240-2

A modern turntable from a legendary company

When word got out that we'd be carrying Thorens turntables, the news created a buzz amongst Crutchfield's knowledgeable community of record collectors. The resurgence of vinyl for a new generation of music lovers has brought this venerable and respected Swiss company — it started making music boxes and clockworks in 1883 — back to the forefront of turntable production, right where it belongs.

A modern turntable from a legendary company

When word got out that we'd be carrying Thorens turntables, the news created a buzz amongst Crutchfield's knowledgeable community of record collectors. The resurgence of vinyl for a new generation of music lovers has brought this venerable and respected Swiss company — it started making music boxes and clockworks in 1883 — back to the forefront of turntable production, right where it belongs.

The TD 240-2 features an elegant, solid design that includes a real wood base with noise-damping feet, a dense platter, and a reliable aluminum tonearm with factory-installed Thorens TAS 267 moving magnet cartridge.

It's fully automatic, so you can start a record playing and keep cooking, reading, or stealth-napping, secure in the knowledge that the tonearm will stop, lift, and return to the rest when it reaches the end of a side. This belt-driven turntable is ready to play at any speed: 33-1/3, 45, or 78 rpm.

Features

3-Speed Fully Automatic Operation: The Thorens TD 240-2 turntable offers fully automatic operation for playback of 33-1/3, 45 (adapter included), and 78* RPM records. When you start playback, the tonearm will automatically move to the lead-in groove. You can also choose to manually place the tonearm on the record. When the record has finished playing, the tone arm automatically will return to the tone arm rest and the turntable will shut off. You can also manually stop playback before the record reaches the end and the tone arm will lift and return to the tone arm rest and the turntable will shut off.

Note: A 45 RPM adapter is included. *78 RPM records require a special stylus/cartridge assembly that is sold separately

Belt-Driven Aluminum Platter: The turntable features a 12" low-resonance aluminum platter with felt mat that is belt driven. The belt comes pre-installed. The platter and mat must be installed.

Tonearm w/ Pre-Mounted Cartridge: The Thorens TD 240-2 turntable features a pre-installed 8.3" one-piece aluminum straight tonearm with pre-mounted Audio-Technica AT95E dual manet MM cartridge featuring an eliptical stylus that provides audiophile-grade sound qualitywith a frequency response of 20-20,000Hz.

Real Wood Plinth: The turntable features a solid real wood plinth (base) with four integrated shock-absorbing rubber feet to prevent unwanted vibration. Its available in a piano black laquer or walnut veneer finish.

Attached Stereo RCA Cable: The turntable features an attached 44" stereo RCA cable with ground wire that connects to the phono MM input and ground terminal on back of your receiver or integrated amplifier. If your receiver or integrated amp does not have a suitable Phono MM input, a separate phono preamplifier (sold separately - see Accessories Tab) is required to connect the turntable.

AC Power Adapter: The turntable operates off of standard household current using the supplied external AC power adapter.

Dust Cover: The Thorens TD 240-2 turntable comes with a high-quality acrylic cover to keep dust away. The dust cover comes with two hinges and will need to be installed.

Customer Q&A

1 question already asked

Q
Can the Thorens 240-2 TT be outfitted by you with a Sumiko Moonstone or Blue Point 2 cartridge instead of the factory installed cartridge before shipping? That would include alignment and balancing please.

A
You can replace the cartridge on that Thorens but we would not be able to arrange to have it done before shipping. You can order the replacement cartridge with the turn table and our tech support can walk you through swapping them or direct you to a place to have it done locally.
