Hello there and welcome to Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you today. I am an engineer with over 30 years of electrical and electronic training, repair and installation experience. I will try and answer your question accurately and precisely so that we can get you on your way.

Now..this is a very old system dating back to 1983. I can help you but I need you to tell me how the current turntable connects to the SU5A amplifier. You SHOULD have two RCA jacks on the amp labeled PHONO.

Can you check that for me please?

Also, is it a requirement for the replacement to sit on top of the 'stack' or can it sit on its own?

Please let me know so that we can continue.

There are 2 jacks on far lefthandside, bottom one which is red has phono underneath it and top one is white. I hope this is clear. The replacement is required to sit on top of the 'stack'

Good morning.

Ok, pretty much any turntable will work here. The two RCA plugs are the standard arrangement.

So then the issue is trying to find one that sits on top of the other components.

>>>HERE IS ONE<<< for under forty quid.
