Euromut, what did it look like before the restoration? Like was it found in a barn under a rat's nest?

Anyway, looks awesome.

It wasn't too shabby. But it had clearly been sitting for a long time. I just took the time to replace all the caps, many of the resistors, built a rectifier, re-flowed almost all the solder joints, and polished the chassis.

I am still in the process of tuning the phono stage. I am adjusting the resistor values on the input to match my MC Cartridge.

I am also going to be replacing the volume pot with a 23-step attenuatior.

Sorry for over sharing. lol

Oh yeah, and matched up with my restored Thorens TD160.

Dang, that is a lot of work you put into it and from the looks of it, you elevated something that was already pretty high up there.

And that is one gorgeous Thorens you have.
