    My brother got a Sony Hp 610 receiver with a built in dual turntable and I was wondering who made the TOTL all in one R&T combos. I've seen allot of Lyolds and cheap radio shack and other brands, but did Marantz or Kenwood or any of the other brands make any desireable combos?

    Now why would you want to do something like that to yourself ?

    A mid-seventies Panasonic was the best that a multiplex ever got !

    Marantz made a receiver (Model 25?) with available cabinets that were precut to fit turntables of tat era. Dual and Elac/Miracord come to mind.

    Also, the big names back in "the day" (Scott, Fisher, KLH and, I believe) and KLH also made three piece systems with a receiver and a decent quality turntables.

    I have a KLH Model Twenty that sounds good, as it should with KLH speakers.

    Probably better out there but Benjamin put together a pretty decent three piece system with an Elac PW50 turntable and cartridge on top of a pretty decent USA made receiver of some unknown make, , EMI speakers . Pretty high quality components. I have the mid level 1045 and it is a pretty stout outfit.

    I had that same Sony(or maybe mine was a 810) and it was a really nice system.
    Nice sound, Nice build quality and beautiful wood.

    Fisher, Scott, Harmon Kardon, KLH, Marantz, and surprisingly Sylvania, had some nice ones.

    That Braun is a beauty but very pricey and rare. B&O had a few good ones.

    I saw an Altec Lansing with what looked like a Garrad 100 turntable.

    Don't believe they did but a number of manufacturers used Dual turntables, others used Garrard.

    The Altec model was the "911"

    I wasn't sure. One of these was sold locally on Craigslist.

    Then I'm mistaken. Never saw that one before.

    a2.jpg I grew up with this stylin' Panasonic SG-999. Great sounding amp and tuner, but a shame the turntable and tonearm were not as good. Still, it sounded way better than it should have for a ceramic cartridge.

    I and a friend each bought an Altec Lansing model 911 from Stereo Warehouse. I believe was about 44 wpc. It had a Garrard SL95 automatic turntable.

    That model was an inside job.

    I guess this Panasonic doesn't really count because it doesn't have a TT on top, but it DOES have a cassette deck, so it's kind of an all in one.

    Had it come into a charity garage sale I help with and I was impressed.

    I garage saled a different Panasonic a few years back that was silver faced and had a TT. I was equally impressed with that one. Flywheel tuning on both and good sound.

    I picked up a beautiful Harmon Kardon SC440 with a walnut case. Early SS, AM and FM tuner with a Garrard TT on top.
    It was quite expensive in it's day.
    Just one more thing I need to get rid of, why do I collect these things? LOL
