Great, that's the spirit. Overall it looks like an HMV Fiesta (old model) however it is not as HMV sold these with their own turntables in India, not sure if they ever used a Garrard deck. This could probably be a Murphy or Bush but not sure.

Its a good find and definitely a good keep.

On another note, the Type-A is considered to be one of Garrard's best changers.

Yes you are right, the time lag between turning on the record player to hearing the hiss indicates that it was a tube amp. That time lag is the time taken for the valve to warm up. Most sure that it is likely to be a ECL82 or ECL86 single-valve amplifier if its an AC model or UCL82 or UCL86 if its an AC/DC model. The rectifier is likely to be EZ80 (AC Model) or UZ80 (AC/DC Model). These little built in amps were fun and sounded good, within their limitations. Nothing special. The changer turntable is also very ordinary and is notorious for rumble (as these older Garrards do not have shielded motors).

Regarding the keep-value, yes it is a good keep if you have memories from your childhood. Sorry to say that your TT may have little or no commercial value which explains why the seller struggled to sell it :-)

Hope this helps, if you want to identify a Garrard, always refer to this site:

Nederlands Grammofoon Genootschap
Very detailed and nice info there.

I offer to sell the same TT / Changer to some collector. PM me if someone has a good offer to make. But will keep the box and tube amp.

Or maybe exchange with a tube radio set.

Re: please identify this garrard

If you make a juicy offer, I might get interested. I have some plans to create a rack with vintage equipment for display in my new home's listening space. But not decided on what to display (surely a NAD 3020 would be on the agenda) or the budget. Its only a thought right now. I was looking at a Type-A changer recently but the asking price is too high, so dropped it.
