someone is selling the complete hi fi for £15 in england http://surrey.olx.co.uk/vintage-sony-st ... -224664232
my last hi fi was a generic aiwa z1800, and i found that when i got my thorens turntable and tried to test it in the old aiwa hi fi it was barely audible as the phono equalizer was in the aiwa turntable and not in the hi fi itself, which was strange, so if you get it up and running into a standard hi fi, then plug it into a CD or line in input first, and if it's quiet and gives out very little power then plug it into the phono and see how that sounds. (because if your record player has it's own phono equalizer, and your hi fi also has it's own phono equalizer, it might sound mental and overdriven. maybe?)
you can probably get an adaptor from a pound shop which allows you to change the voltage to suit the turntables power supply, would that work guys? i dunno, just an idea.
i would also recommend getting something better and with a universal fit,
if you're not that bothered about it being top flight gear then maybe look at the dual CS 505, they're pretty cheap and available to get off ebay, £40-£70
very good for the money.
you will need to make sure that the amp you get has a proper phono stage, otherwise you will need to fork out for one seperately.
for good cheap amps, try rotel or arcam alpha, for arcam you will get a bit of a fight on your hands, but rotel are more easily available, £40-£100 depending on the model.
mission speakers are good and cheap, i got some 731 bi-wire-able speakers from cash converters for £35
