Listing Detail Tabs

Thorens was founded in Switzerland in 1883, making clocks - and developed to produce a range of audiophile record players from the 1950's onwards. Some of the most highly regarded turntables of ALL TIME have come out of the Thorens factory.

Thorens are best known for their audiophile turntables... but you may not know that they also released a VERY RARE range of stereo separates. I doubt you've seen these before and I doubt you'll see them again! In fact they're so rare I could hardly find any info on these items on the web.

The TDA 1200 is an outboard Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC) which processes the raw digital signal from your high end digital stereo sound source, and converts it to an analogue signal which your amplifier can use. I used it to process the signal from my Thorens TCD 1300 CD player and the results were immediate. The CD player already sounds excellent, but run through this DAC it was noticeably improved. I could hear greater subtle detail, and it had an overall 'fuller' sound, making the CD's much more enjoyable to listen to! A clear and definite enhancement!

You could really run any digital sound source into this DAC... PC digital out, MiniDisc (remember those?), DAT, SACD, DVD stereo... etc.

The rear panel also features a coaxial digital output, which allows you to connect to a separate digital recording device for pure, high resolution signal transfer, without background electrical noise.

All of the rear connections are GOLD-plated, allowing the purest signal transfer possible!

This unit sounds fantastic, and when it's paired with my other Thorens separates from my other auctions, you have an awesome sounding setup!

Starting at $1... this will sell to the final bidder!
