Default Mounting Ortofon AS 212 on Thorens TD 160 MK II

Heya,

I want to build a new armboard for my Thorens TD 160 MK II. Have the stock arm armboard, but I don't think the mounting location is ideal for the AS 212.

I have looked around on the internet, but haven't been able to find
how to recalculate the best location to mount the arm. Was wondering
if anyone could point me in the right direction.

best regards,
Jonatan

Hi Jonatan,
I think you will find all of the information you need on the AS-212 on Vinyl Engine | The Home of the Turntable - you do need to join first. Great arm by the way..

You might look out for a 60Hz motor on ebay, or better yet join up at Lenco Heaven where another forum member may even have one laying around you could purchase.

(Sorry for the thread jack Jonatan.)

Also VERY sorry - I was wanting to bid on my 1st turntable, but as time was running out I discovered the Hz problem and needed an answer fast ---- THANK YOU :-) you will now be returned to your regularly scheduled program . . . .

Buying one originally built for the US and Canadian market would be cheapest and easiest.
