    Thank you.

    No change, In the final picture its just without any additional mat. I don't think the spindle can be moved within the sub-platter. Or if it can, I doubt it should be.

    Wow. You’ve done exactly what I’ve been researching. Bolivian Rosewood base with Audiomods arm. I’d given up on the idea for the moment but seeing this has kicked off the research again.

    It’s gorgeous!

    With regards to the Thorens Tables. Are most a good candidate for upgrades? Eg would a 150 be able to be modified to sound great too or is the 160 the pinnacle?

    I have modified both and both are candidates for great upgrades. The TD150 uses a armboard similar to the TD 125-126 series which allows more flexibility in arm selection. Neither table modified is a slouch! IMHO
