Finding a suitable record player - Help appreciated


Novice Member

I would like to apoligise if this has been posted in the wrong area!

I am looking to invest in a new record player.

I have a very nice set of vintage PYE speakers I got for £40 at a charity shop. I've attached a photo of what they look like.

I also have an NAD C320BEE amp.

Would this record player suit the setup I have?: A Retro Late 1960’s PYE 1556 Three Speed Stereo Record Player | eBay

I can't find much information on the quality of PYE electronics pre-80s, which was when I believe philips bought the company and changed the build/sound quality to suit the 'budget' category.

Any information/record player reccomendations for under £200 would be very much appreciated.

Thank you for any help,



That one has tone controls, which means it also has an amplifier built in - and, to be honest, the sound quality is likely to be very poor.

As you have a NAD C320BEE, which is a very nice amp, all you need is a turntable. If you can stretch to it, this is widely thought of as the one to beat around that price bracket...

Brilliant. Thank you for letting me know and for taking the time to help. I'm blown away by the support of this forum to be honest. Have a good day

Best, Blake.
