TD 402 DD Turntable By Thorens
The Thorens TD 402 DD comes out of the box as a complete vinyl solution for easy use. The 402 DD has an innovative direct drive motor with an integrated phono preamp and auto-start and auto-stop functions. A full package with the tonearm and cartridge included.

Far from a simple entry-level standard, the TD 402 DD uses state-of-the-art technology together with ease of use and great sound. The new Thorens tonearm, the TP 72 uses a carbon tube with the pre-installed AT VM95 E cartridge mounted in a detachable headshell. The integrated phono preamp can be bypassed. An acrylic dust cover and a power supply are included. The Thorens TD 402 DD is as the best buy in its price range.
“If you don’t have your own setup record, do the same. Apart from that “tweak”, I can wholeheartedly recommend the Thorens TD402 DD turntable as both a pleasure to use, and pleasure to listen to.”
“Thorens TD 402 DD is an appealing turntable in so many ways. It has an appealing design, is very user-friendly and comes pre-assembled with a good and budget-friendly pickup. The fact that it can also be used without an extra phono step makes it relevant for even more people, but acoustically it falls short in this class. It lacks dynamic contrast and commitment, something unusual for a Thorens player, and is far too sensitive on surfaces and placement. In this class we would rather choose a Technics SL-1500C.”

“I have lusted after Thorens turntables since I was about 16. I swore I would own a Thorens someday, and I hoped the TD 402 DD would be the one. My initial experience with it was disappointing. While the turntable worked perfectly and was gorgeous to look at, the sound it produced with its installed cartridge was sadly rather lifeless when connected to my Linn Majik-1P—a preamp I’ve always felt was near the top of the game. It and the Thorens just didn’t mesh.”

“The Thorens TD-402 DD turntable honors the legacy of the brand. Combining relaxed and warm sound with the classic Thorens esthetic, this turntable takes the elements that made the brand successful and adds an integrated preamp and a direct drive system. Quiet and responsive, the return of the direct drive system on Thorens turntables is a success. Another positive point, the Thorens TD-402 DD can be easily upgraded thanks to its switchable phono preamp and its SME compatible TP 72 tonearm. The turntable will benefit greatly from a cartridge with more pronounced performance and from a dedicated phono preamp to deliver the entirety of its potential. The Thorens TD-402’s vintage esthetic and its solid dust cover make it a compelling deck which can be easily integrated in any type of interior. This is a pleasant turntable and a well designed model which marks the return of the direct drive system in the Thorens catalog in a dignified manner.”
