    The Sharp is supposed to be good but is electrically complex as it has 1970s touch controls. Make sure they all work if you find one! Alternatively, how about:

    Bang & Olufsen Beocenter 4600
    Garrard GA-200 (yes, really - they're superb!)
    National Panasonic SG-5070
    Goodmans MCD-100
    Sony HMK-80

    Or if you don't mind sneaking into the 1980s:
    Sony HMK-9000
    Hitachi SDT-900M

    And the one I'd go for:
    Bang & Olufsen Beocenter 7007 or 7700.

    Well, i say "would" go for, but that should be "did" go for. I don't plan to part with my Beocenter 7007!

    Dynatron are good - used various manufacturers turntables.
    I got one (with a Lenco GL78 deck) and refurbed it and gave it to my brother for his 50th - he loves it and the sound is to die for
    It was from 1973

    The Sony HMK9000 is from 1979 so does qualify. Although I would also go for the Beocenter.

    My Danish relatives had a Beocenter 7700 with a B&O cdp that matched stylishly and the big floor standing speakers and it sounded great, I was quite envious at the time

    My folks have a National Panasonic music centre that is still going strong, note National not just Panasonic. Pretty sure I also have a NP ghetto blaster from the early 80's in the loft, must try it out.

    Both items are becoming sought after now.
