This page collects and displays vintage Thorens turntable sales brochures.

Sales brochures tend to be regarded as propaganda by prospective customers.  Over the years, however, these brochures become useful historical documents that display options and specifications of the various models. Dates posted next to the brochures are taken from the brochures themselves when present. The actual dates of manufacture for the various models may differ.
