There is not a place for it here but everybody here is very knowledgeable on audio I might as well take a shot. I'm in the process of buying a a thorens ad-150 and was trying to find replacement parts for it. If anybody can help.THX

Actually turntables do get discussed, but in the audio-visual section of Home Theatre, so if a moderator moves this for you (or you could repost it there), you may get some info.

In the fine print under the Audio/Video Sources section:

"I was born to ramble, born to rove
Some men are searchin for the Holy Grail
But there ain't nothin sweeter 
Than riden' the rails."

You can try contacting the US distributer:
5816, Highway K
Waunakee WI 53597
Tel.: 001-608-850-3600
Fax: 001-608-850-3602
Endusers: mailto:thorens@triancorp.com

For a 30 yo turntable, I'd be concerned about replacing the bearing and probably running with a non-thorens arm.

You can't move a thread. You can only start a new one (which I've closed as a duplicate). If you need to have a thread moved, please contact a moderator. M.

I had a similar problem with a wood based Sony turntable I purchased in the 70's, which still performed well. I did find a place that does a great job repairing turntables. I sent mine in and had a great turnaround. The turntable is like new. The prices are very reasonable.

Good luck

If you venture to the Vinyl forum on the Audio Asylum website you will get a great deal of help since there is a large Thorens following there.
