Impressive and huge and very impressive and really huge.
But beautiful, in a sort of “tanky” way.
Launched for Thorens’ 101th anniversary, only 101 Prestige record players were planned to be made. However, the model was available on order at least until 1993 -at 15,000$- so there might have been a few more.
Because, like the later Referenz, the Prestige sold very well… especially in Japan !
According to independent reviewers, the Prestige is a far better turntable than the Referenz – I wouldn’t know but I do know that of the two, the Prestige is the one I’d welcome in my home.
