Looking for a simple to use stereo system that covers all your needs? This great sounding Vinyl based Hi-Fi system has a high-quality Turntable, Integrated Amplifier and a pair of Bookshelf Speakers along with all the cables you need to get this great little system singing in your home.
When we first opened in December 1978, you could only buy a stereo system. Amplifier brands like Marantz, NAD and Yamaha were the prime movers and now several decades later are still riding the waves of popularity. So with a little bit of back to the future, we've created a system using a Marantz Amplifier and as we did back then, we have combined it with a simple manually operated belt drive Turntable from Europe. In 1978 it was the Dual 505 and today the excellent Pro-Ject Debut Carbon fitted with an Ortofon cartridge.
The variation is the speakers. In 1978 Australia built the massive 12" 3-way speakers, today though it is the Richter Merlin which is a refined design that beautifully complements the smooth sound generated by the Marantz Amplifier.
