"...The TD2010 with the SME M2 tonearm is both pretty and pretty sounding as one should expect. The clear acrylic plinth is a thick 25 mm and the polished aluminum platter weighing in at 4kg present a great looking picture for the hardened audio buff that's not glitter-oriented but enjoys a good looking piece of gear, none the less...The table plays music...not simply sound. It's pretty as a piece of antique lead crystal and as silent as a summer night in the desert. It allows you to hear that coyote stalking a mouse ½ mile from your listening chair." - Mike Peshkin, Stereo Mojo
Thorens' more than 100 years of knowledge in turntable manufacturing lead to this highlight. And what a highlight it is! The TD 2010 is made with the most up-to-date manufacturing technology and the latest tools in research and development. The chassis is made of 25-mm polished acrylic and the platter is a more than 4 kg heavy polished piece of aluminum with a backside coating for vibration damping. The external motor is supplied by a state-of-the-art motor drive unit. The new inverted silent run bearing is also an integral part of Thorens' design philosophy. This bearing runs dry without any maintenance during its entire lifetime. With its technical features and outstanding design, the TD 2010 is a timeless masterpiece.
