It's a mid nineties Marantz and coupled up with a little NAD Phono Preamp still produces a glorious sound. There is something immensely gratifying in the whole ritual of removing from sleeve/innersleeve/cleaning/placing/cuein
I listen to other forms CD's/PC-USB-DAC-Hi-Fi/iPod etc. but nothing is quite as engaging as a record turntable.
Those people who just quote "the pops, hissing and space involved" ad neaseum don't have a soul or were incredibly unlucky enough not to have grown up with one.
