Default Power Supply for Thorens 166 mkII

Just picked up a new (old) Thorens 166, but it is missing its power supply/plug.
The tt has no sticker telling me what the correct voltage. Anyone know? Will any old power adaptor due as long as it matches the power required?

According to this page: THORENS TD 146 and TD 166 MKII Owner's Manual
you need 16Vac @ 140mA. Any adapter or transformer that outputs 16V and is rated at at least 2.5VA will do.

Thanks for the info + link.
Do you think this would work:
AC/AC Adapter - 16VAC 300mA

Yeah, if the data I linked to are correct, that should do her nicely. As long as the plug fits, of course, but that's a minor issue; a soldering iron would solve much if it doesn't fit!
