The sub chassis on this device follows the suspension characteristic of Thorens of yore but in a novel and modern foot suspension that looks balanced to a 12HZ ish fundamental for excellent audible range isolation.

The TP92 tonearm fitted is a hundred times better than my old TD160's ... its a rolled alloy tube with a brass counterweight ... if you're looking at online images of the 309 the the circular alloy weight opposite the tonearm which is a stabiliser for adjusting the level and balance of the plinth if required. In the shop this eveningI had the puck sitting in the centre of the record whilst playing. I checked the level of the player and in fact the stabiliser needed to be on the record centre for proper balance. possibly our old building in Carlton leans a little. I tried a propoer Thorens stabiliser in the centre stem position with the puck in its normal position and it was excellent.

Those of you familiar with our toilet ... I'd like to say sorry ... but also you may have noticed the Johhny Cash imagery that is indicative of obsession ... playing "Aint No Grave Can Hold My Body Down" his 2010 posthumous album American VI (he died in 2003 ...) on a familiar amp and speakers but off the 309 with standard cartridge is a revelation in time and space ... the holographic bloom of the instruments into the room is a shock from such a well trodden piece. Hi-Fi News reported that this deck "has the un-fakeable quality of instant communication". Love it.

Thorens TD309 in the park The supplied Goldring Cartridge works really well at this lateral imagery characteristic; it's not a shout at you set up and could be initially construed as being simply very conservative in the treble area if you don't try it properly. I've been listening to it through a pair of Monitor Audio GS10 speakers that are very critical of poor HF quality and the deck response has been brilliant. The instrument rendition in space is vastly outside the left and right edges of the speakers whilst retaining good spatial coherence and point presence.

Stereophile review of the TD309.
