Product Description

Thales TTT-Slim. Sonic Precision. Entry Reference Price.

Now at True Audiophile.

Thales turntables have compelled analog writers world over to throw up their hands and embrace the beauty of analog that Thales turntables and arms produce. The tables are so extraordinary and precision we couldn't pass them up. There are many options these days in the world of turntables but none better. - TA

"After years of listening to turntables and owning three different linear tracking setups, and admitting my unrelenting, persisting love for a really good 12-inch pivot tonearm, I think either the tonearms from Thales or linear tracking tonearms are solving a real, theoretical and mathematical problem.

In the end, the Thales Slim and Easy is a truly wonderful sounding analogue source and one I could easily live with." -- Jack Roberts, Dagogo Magazine 2016 Full Review

Even the Thales tonearm team cannot turn upside down the laws of physics. But where does it come from that this slim and elegant turntable produces such an overwhelming and nuanced sound experience? The secret lies in the sophisticated art of engineering and craftsmanship of its designers: Besides the elaborate construction and the most precise workmanship the TTT SLIM is carefully tuned to our tangential pivoted tonearm THALES EASY.

Due to many years of experience in the field of analogue tracking we were able to develop such a compact turntable that meets the highest requirements at the same time. Its delicate and compact design actually ensures the mechanical stability that could never be achieved by a more extensive concept. Each of the seventy parts has been carefully designed to perform its function in the overall concept perfectly. The turntable is being manufactured in our workshop in Switzerland.

Our short-belt-drive system transfers the moment of inertia of motor and flywheel effectively to the main platter. Since the rotary-speed of motor and flywheel is 12x higher than that of the platter they are very important sonically. This hard coupling has been made possible by a carefully calculated spring-element that keeps all vibration away from the chassis but does not allow the motor to move axially.

The most modern battery-drive system (peak capacity 100 W) offers more than twenty hours of listening without connection to the supply network. The battery will be fully charged within a few hours. Together with our brass bearing, the high density inlay of the platter, and the carefully designed spikes, a quality in music playback is achieved that lets everyone forget about all the technical details.

Price is for Table ONLY. Arm and cartridges sold separately.
