    Rotel RA 312 Amp, Rotel RP1500 Turntable and a pair of solovox speakers. (Still have the amp and turntable) plus a pair of yellow/brown platforms, very handy for watching football.

    Did anyone have platforms with the built-in fish tanks like Disco Stu off of the Simpsons?

    Alba amp, BD1 kit - can't remember the arm or cart and KEF Kit 1. My second amp was a Rotel 611 as well. There was a mint one for sale on French eBay last month and I very nearly gave in to temptation.

    Dual CS505-3 turntable, Cyrus One amplifier, Castle Durham speakers. I've still got the amp and speakers, though they are boxed up and in storage.

    My brother went for a Sansui SR-222 turntable, NAD 3020 amp and Wharfdale speakers - though I can't remember exactly which model of Wharfdale he had.

    Was probably about 18 here. Amp is an Eagle TSA149 (I think) Garrard SP25 Mk1V, Speakers Sykes & Hirsch spherical thingys. I bought the amp and TT when I was about 15, and got the speakers from a school mate whose family were loaded and his dad was always buying him the latest gear. There were 2 sizes, one the size of a football and these which were much bigger. Pretty crap sound wise, but it was the "swinging70's" and the "hifi" shops in the Kings Road would have these in their window together with the latest B&O stuff. I paid £25 for them, which I suppose was quite a bit back then. There was a pair on ebay recently for £500!. I sold mine around 1980 for.........yup £25. Not sure what the box on top of the amp is. It could be an old Pye tuner. My dad bought a Pye valve amp and possibly a tuner together with some coffin sized speakers. When they moved I had the speakers which I didn't think were too bad, a bit dull for me. Some years later I had a look inside them and saw that they were Goodmans Axiom (not sure which model) and they were sold for........yup you guessed it.....£25.

    Buy Bose...And get your parking validated!.
