I had Dave’s VN150 with an Ortofon 2M Bronze for about 13 months. It was an excellent table and gave me a lot of enjoyment.
Prior to the Thorens I had been using a Linn LP 12 for about 24 years. I replaced the springs/grommets/belt/oil every 3 -4 years, but did no other Linn upgrades.
I enjoyed the sound of the Linn, but felt that the restored Thorens from Dave was an easily discernible step up in performance.
Decided to try a non-suspended table, got the VPI Prime, and sold the Thorens. The Prime did offer a significant performance boost, but it should have given a price that is over 2 times that of the restored Thorens.
Dave does excellent restorations and is very good to work with. I hold him and his restored tables in high regard.
