The TD160 Super is based upon the standard TD160 mechanicals but also comes with a larger more rigid base cabinet (plinth), a heavier bottom plate, damping material to the sub-chassis.  In most cases, these tables were sold without arms so the customer could chose his/her own.  Dust cover is on metal friction hinge where the standard TD160 MK I was a simple pin affair.  

This example is also using an add-on device called a Thorens Cue-up.  A simple mechanical contraption that lifts the tonearm off the record at the end of play.  Tonearm is an Incognito 500C (a modified RB250).  Cartridge is a Shure VST-V.
