    I don't know about the right model but it's the version I think is best.

    Shit pic but it's a Marantz CD-73

    Big bastard, clunky drawer, no remote, sounds sublime.

    They don't make em like they used to.

    had a 250 se here recently with some harbeth p3esr , not bad at all really considering it was so cheap . my relative still uses it as a back up for his little denon dm41 if it needs repair [ which it has once already ]

    If you want an inexpensive amp with a more than decent phono stage, look out for a Creek 4140S2. Quite old now, so probably in need of a service, but not necessarily. The one I bought new around 30 years ago or so, is still going strong. 200-300 would get you a very nice Creek EVO, if you wanted something a bit newer. Later Creeks don't have the bounce, energy and fun of their earlier model though, IMO.

    hi simon
    thanks for the heads up regarding the creeks.
    trouble with the older model is it already seems to have hit a classic/cult status and fetching the sort of prices to match s/h,at the end of the day i have a yamaha as2100 that if i ever get fixed will be my end game for amplifiers(hopefully).
    this is just a bit of fun and a real interest with a injection of curiosity after being totally surprised with the little denon amp i have.
