    My uncle used to have the Sony version, with big 3 way Sony speakers. It was very good. He owned it from new, couldn't recall what he had paid but said it was very expensive. Hi Fi World featured one in their old worlde column a few years back now. Last time I saw him I asked him if he still had it but he said he's skipped it years previously. Gutted. He still has a pair of Lintons that he bought new in about 1970, uses them on his TV.

    Id bet that it was that music centre was responsible for your love of Hifi ?
    My Dad had a dynatron in a fancy wooden cabinet ( sounded good to me) and it was probably that which got me started , but then I got my second job with Hammond organs in Bletchley and my manager there would build amps from scratch and the odd pair of speakers with fane drivers .

    always wanted an electric organ. had one in the shop and used to play it, badly. yup. that and then my bro got a jvc separate system that was good in its own way. i ended up with the tt which had one of those belt drive arms.
