Is that a MF Electra amp? Linn TT? That MF probably runs warmer than the valve amp below.
LOL, yeah it's an Elektra E100, slightly warm sounding too but suits me.
Close on the Linn, its actually an Ariston RD90 Superieur, quite a rare deck by most standards and IMO better than the "mighty" (?) LP12 in quite a few aspects.
It's got an AKITO arm and a Goldring 1012 (soon to be 1042) cart.
Since the q was how much did it cost, I paid £120 for the deck and arm. The E100 I got at 40% of the retail, which I think was £600 so that would be £240.

i like it, nice valves, but what is going on there? valve phono, transistor pre, and valve power? i had an elektra e10 a while back. did like that big friendly nob
Nah, the valve is an old pre power Tripletone that I was given and have since restored. It isn't in the loop 90% of the time, I just sometimes swap the E100 over for the valve amp when I play CD's to try and give the damn evil discs a bit of life
