Vintage Thorens Td160MKII or new Goldring Gr1.2?

What sounds better, vintage or new? Plan to fit a Grado prestige gold.
the thorens for sure....the grado is a good match too.
The Thorens and if you put a better tonearm and dampen the motor platter and other mods you will have a turntable better than a Linn LP12 also have a look at
I have no affiliation with this site but they are offering restored and modded Thorens and AR Vintage TTs Excellent workmanship and a great resource for classic models
