integrated receiver turntable

Post by trent77 » 12 Jul 2019 02:54

I recently saw a vintage Fischer Mc 3050 stereo on ebay. It looks like the exact model we bought around 1978. It came with a turntable, cassette player, 8 track and am/fm radio. It sounded very good for awhile but then we the speakers seemed to have degraded noticeably. I dont know if it was common with the Fischer models of that time or just the speakers; perhaps just our particular speakers.Other than the speakers, the rest of the stereo functioned properly and we had it for a long time.

What do you think were some of the best "all in one" / integrated vintage stereos?

The Zenith Allegro wedge stereos come to mind.

The German WEGA systems are highly collectible and well made.

The Sony HMK-70 looks like a decent system

The Sony HMK looks very sharp. Judging from the photo in the link, i dont think it had the 8 track player. It is sleeker the the Fisher we had. I read years that that these integrated stereos were never as good as building an individual component stereo sysytem. Did anyone here own any of the above mentioned models?

Tinkaroo: One of my co workers mentioned that the WEGA sysyems later became Sony. I saw one of early 70's WEGA stereos on ebay and it was listed for quite a large sum.
