Hi Paul, I don't know that particular Thorens from experience, but I always liked the Brand, having owned a couple. You've probably already checked their site, if not, here's the link: http://www.thorens.ch/THORENS/thorens.main.php?id=en_201&range=3
As I understand it, the deck is supplied with an AT95 cartridge. Not bad, but you could do better with a nice Ortofon for instance. Remember you'll need a separate pre-pre, so decide if you want a mm or an mc cartridge before splashing out on a pre.
The only drawback is it looks a bit pricey, but then again, I live in Europe, so I guess Thorens is pricier in the USA then over here. Maybe you can compare it to something similiar priced like a Rega or a Pro-Ject in the same price range?
