    Dad is after a good quailty sounding system.
    Needs to be the following


    Not too big
    Look rather nice
    Have not too big speakers
    Stereo rather than surround sound
    Have CD Player, Tuner, Tape deck etc
    Have (or be able to have connected to it) a record player
    Be no more than about £450

    To give you an idea he has seen a picture of the smaller Denon units and likes the look of those

    Could someone reccomend a few units and where best to buy them from

    Duncan this little system looks like a real bargain (it covers CD/Tuner/Cassette), it also adds the bnous of Sony MD functionality which can be used with a USB port on a PC, all that’s required is a £40 NAD phonostage/Project phono stage for TT duties I reckon, you could change the speakers if you wish anyway here is a quote from another thread :

    Similarly the Denon DM31 is a stonking little mini/micro system, but you will need a sep cassette deck + Phono stage.

    Amazon for the Sony, Empiredirect/Unbeatable for the Denon.

    Thanks - only problem is - whats the system

    Also whats the phono stage thing ?

    Dad has a rather servicable record deck at present which connects to his existing (but now broken) hi-fi via a phono cable

    Thanks - one thing I should have said is that he is not keen on really tiny units like that (although still does not want anything HUGE) and also fancies either a modular unit (like the Denon) or even a seperates system
