    Iím looking forward to hearing this one tomorrow though I doubt the Wharfedale Linton xp3ís ( they came with it ) will do it justice so Iíll hook up my radfords to it.
    I loved it Andrew, after my old Dansette record player and my parents Ferguson radiogram it was the most exotic thing in the world.

    It should do! Which source did you use? The tuner should be particularly good (if you have a proper aerial).

    What does the turntable sound like?

    Yes listening to the tuner , damn good bit of kit but worthless really unless I can find an interior designer, the cassette deck does work but the sound is just a load of clicks , new drive belt ordered for the TT .
    It came with some Wharfedale Linton xp3ís that are almost like new , again not worth much .
