Expert review

So does the quality 'Swiss-made' reputation extend to turntables? Founded in 1833, Thorens have been renowned for its turntables in the past, but is it still the case? The fully automatic Thorens 190-2 is the 'bigger brother' of the Thorens TD 170-1, promising better build quality, with the plinth and platter having more mass. It promises 'silent running', so you can only hear the sound. Our lab put it through its paces, so find out the answers to this and more.

What's included:
