Mystery turntable in the TV show 'Severance' ?

You mean there's more to HiFi than a LP12?

Mystery turntable in the TV show 'Severance' ?

Post by Lanark »

In the TV show 'Severance' they have a couple of scenes with what looks like a 1970's era Turntable.

I don't think its an LP 12, the front of the dust cover slants down at a slight angle.

Can anyone ID this?

My first thought was Throens, but I can not see the iconic Thorens switches of that era.

Pink Triangle? (but then they had acrylic platters)

Some frankenstein job made to TV?

... but I must say the sloping lid looks familiar in my dim and distant memory

It did also occur to me it could be a Frankenstein combination, LP12 platter, lid from something else etc but even if a prop, it is able to rotate and play a record.

Looks like an early Ariston RD11 to me.

IIRC the early RD11s didn't have a badge on the plinth, merely a logo on the armboard.

Theres a better pic of it here

In that shot you can see what looks like a small logo on the front.

They are using it without a turntable mat, also no amp or speakers but thats kind of expected in TV land.
