Nothing particularly awe-inspiring by today's sandards, but I'm happy with it.
Main components are listed in my sig.
VCR/DVD combo will be going shortly for a HDD/DVD or HDD/BD unit.
Main system: Mac Mini 2011 > HRT II+ DAC • Cyrus 2 & PSX • Cyrus tuner • MS 10i speakers [on loan]
Also cluttering-up the place: Thorens TD160 (no cart) • Marantz CD 63 mkII KI & PM66 KI • Technics SL-P777 • Nakamichi DR-1
Nice tidy setup you have.
Thanks, it will be when I can junk the VCR/DVD unit, currently on the floor.
I know of a half-decent DVD/HDD Freeview recorder which will just about fit in that 50mm space on top of the CD player, but funds are spoken for til at least next payday.
The t/t pains me as well. I don't listen to it half enough, but I would like to. Half the problem is that it desperately needs to be wall-mounted because of my springy wooden floors, and secondly because there's no obvious way to link it to the Cyrus 2, some eight feet away.

Very nice set-up. You have two of my favourite source components - the Thorens t/t and the Marantz CD63 MkII KI-Signature. Both absolutely superb. Looks good too.

Looks impressive. I also am a fan of Thorens decks. Cracking.

Must admit I am very proud to own that TD160.
I know they're not worth huge amounts but it's been in my family since day 1.
My dad virtually had to pawn the family silver to be able to afford it. I think it cost something like £76 which was a lot of money to him in the very early 70s when he bought it.
For its first 20 years it suffered the ignominy of having a cheap and nasty NEAT cartridge in it because he couldn't afford anything better.
I will look after it for the remainder of my days. When I'm gone it'll probably be a relic that no-one values. If my children then choose to skip it, that'll be up to them.
