I've talked about dressing up a turntable with stickers...Well, this Denon DP-29F is what I'm talking about...

Now, here are two interesting ones...You've heard of MCS, right? :-k

Have you heard of an MCS that was branded Panasonic...

...and was a "Matched Component" rather than a "Modular Component"? :-k

This is a Model 683-2500, IIRC...

Next is a brand I've not heard of, but it looks to be a solid turntable...What do you guys know about HTE? :-k

This one is a Model HT-005...

Then, while not a turntable or record player, this is an unusual cassette player, the Deluxe Talkboy...

Finally, what you might think is a Dual (or even a Bic) from a distance is not a Dual...It's a plastic player made by RJM that looks like it's in a Dual-type plinth...But, as we all know in this hobby...particularly with Crosleys...looks can be deceiving! [-X

I am definitely enjoying all these pics, says the guy who used to hoard more than 75 machines. If I had more money and a BIG house, I'd be dangerous.

I think the Marantz name for that finish was 'Champagne' wasn't it? ... I always thought it was real classy when you compare it to the standard black boxes!
