Home > Upgrade Parts and Mods~New! > Thorens Tonearm Mounting Plates Armboards for 16X Models

A Thorens armboard  plate to allow easy installation of nine inch Linn tonearms such as Linn LVX, Linn Basik, Basik Plus, Ekos and others to Thorens TD-160, TD-145, TD-165, TD-166, TD-166 MKII, TD-160 MKII, TD-160 Super  and TD-147 turntables.   Armboard plate should be compatible with other tonearms that use an Linn style mount. If not, we will refund all but return shipping.

Unlike other manufactured armboards, these are ONE PIECE of high quality machined aluminum. See the pictures at the link below of what can happen if your two piece armboard eventually unglues!  Yes, these other two piece armboards on the market are held together with only glue!

While you are looking at pictures, also check out the one side by side comparing the Vinyl Nirvana armboard to the one currently on the market: their holes are out of round, glue protrudes from the underside, and the brushed finish is uneven.  The Vinyl Nirvana armboard is on the LEFT.

Included with your armboard are three stainless steel screws for attaching the plate to the table and three stainless steel screws for attaching the arm to the armboard.

Note: Turntable and tonearm in the photos are for illustration purposes only.

Note: Installation of your tonearm will require some removal of metal from the Thorens subchassis. This can be done by file, grinder, or Dremel.
