Is it worth upgrading a Thorens TD125

I Have a Thorens TD 125 TT with an SME 3009 tonearm.
I would like to upgrade it.It is in very good condition.
I would like an excellent midrange, very good base and very good treble.

How do I start?
I am not mechanically minded, so I will have to get someone to do the modifications for me.

Where do I start?
And what will I need?

Tks in advance for your assistance
I should mention that I did "upgrade" my TD125's if you can call it an upgrade because it's really just fixing normal wear.
I have a new thrust plate or metal disc dropped into the bearing well for the end of the platter bearing to ride on and there's new oil.
All you have to do is drop the new metal disc into the bearing well and make sure it's laying flat then replace the platter.
Maybe $15 per table? I can't remember.
E-Mail Joel at and ask for the price of a thrust plate (metal disc) and oil for a TD125.
His English isn't fluent so do use all the terms like thrust plate, thrust bearing and round metal disc for the bearing well so he understands what you want.
You may hear a sharper and more focused presentation.
Sorry to bump an old thread but does anyone have any suggestions for replacement feet on a budget for a Thorens TD 125 Mark II? Any thoughts on other feet upgrades? I've seen some Thorens tables with isolation cone feet but was told those weren't really necessary as this is a suspended table.

I was hoping to keep the replacement feet under $60 if possible. With my Thorens TD 125 Mk II I'm currently using keyboard wrist rests with good results but I was looking for additional/better ideas.

Anyone have any experiences with trying different platter mats on the Thorens TD 125?

I'd also suggest contacting Christopher at these guys do wonders with the TD125. If you read into their descriptions they eliminate the old suspension and have new replacement motor and power supply options. The plinths they use for replacement are made from solid Maple (if memory serves me correctly).
Jedinite, i have a 125 that is making progress - i have the edensound bearpaws (similar to the mapleshade heavyfeet). excellent improvement! but at $160 its way beyond your price point. you may want to try the smaller mapleshade surefeet. also, if you have not replaced the base you may want to throw it out and replace it with MDF. i have now, extra mdf for a td166 anda thorens 125 as well as a dozen extra surefeet that were replaced in my system by the heavy feet. feel free to contact me if your interested in purchasing. futhermore, i have found good results with herbies tt mat.

I have George Merrill's decoupling feet $10 each and his new mat $50 on my TD-160 Super. The feet work fine and the mat is better than one I paid much more for and sold it here after I got George's mat. See here:
