I have a Thorens 125 mk2 with SME M-2 arm from Dave. Great turntable and Dave is great to deal with. Highly recommended.

I lurked on the Vinyl Nirvana website for about a year while researching both new and vintage turntables. At the time I was convinced I wanted the best quality semi-automatic I could find and that appeared to be a vintage Thorens TD-147.
Ultimately, I bought a TD-125 from Dave and he mounted a Q-up tonearm lifter and that machine was gorgeous and Dave was a champ. Professional and knowledgable where I needed guidance. The sound, of course, outstanding.
I couldn't stay off the website though and about a year later I traded in the TD-125 with Dave and had him customize a TD-160 to be my ultimate TT.
I Can't recommend Dave and Vinyl Nirvana higher.
