Boofer, the Thorens TD124 has an iron platter and it can be problematic with some MCs. Of course, there is an aluminum topper, which the rubber mat is affixed to, which puts some distance between the iron platter and cartridge. Some have taken to increasing this distance by putting a second mat under the aluminum topper, or otherwise increasing the distance.
The TD124 MK 2 came with either the iron platter or the zinc composite platter that you are referring to. The Zamac platter, as the alloy is referred to, is not magnetically permeable at all and poses no issues to a MC. It is, however, somewhat lighter than the iron platter. I have a MK 2 and it is a nice turntable.
