We have moved to a purpose built workshop Stirling, despite what Google says we are still open, also our telephone number has changed, see below.

I now full offer tonearm repairs following extensive training by John Nielson of Audio Origami fame,  Linn Ittoks and Naim Aro’s are our speciality, but I work on just about any arm, and none have so far defeated me.

if you wish to discuss your repair, or any other questions please call on 01786-940020 or email

Thales Tonarm TTT-Slim II


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, Which is not included, but can be had as a package, with and without a cartridge at a saving over buying seperately.

Due to many years of experience in the field of analogue tracking we were able to develop such a compact turntable meeting 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 is damped on four points and 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 cast-iron bearing-case, the hardened and hand-polished shaft, 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.
