Just reading the now closed Linn LP12 thread. Still have 2 turntables in the loft, a NAD 533 (which was a Rega Planar copy as I understand it) and a US (110v) Thorens TD126 MKIII. The NAD has had a new belt but it still loses speed which makes me think that bearings etc have gone - it wasn't very expensive new so I'm not sure it would be worth having it repaired. The Thorens is, AFAIK, in full working order albeit cosmetically a bit tatty. Does anyone have any experience of the Thorens and its comparative quality against the NAD OR would I be better getting rid of both and going one of these cheap Project decks? It would be for very ocassional use in an AV setup rather than with a stereo only amp.
