    Just noticed the upgrade in the vinyl rigs between The Mechanic and its sequel The Mechanic Resurrection - from what looks like Project to what looks like Oracle :)

    Have noticed that part of setting up Gilead in The Handmaid's Tale obviously included banishing CD players as the devil's work... everyone is listening to vinyl, when I say everyone I mean the commanders as everyone else is too busy being oppressed or raped.... it's a cheery little tale ;)

    Technics 1200 (?) in Shame (starring Michael Fassbender)

    Transcriptor (?) in Jackie & Hilary

    Who knows what is the turntable in Blow Up, Antonioni's classic film? All I know is that it has a topless Vanessa Redgrave...:p

    Funny that. Just watched the first episode of Titans on Netflix: same set up for Robin at his digs. Upscale audio or what?

    Not a film per se, but who can forget Morse's 'Richard's Deck' (Roksan Xerses with chrome bumper Naim no less) in episode 1, 'The Dead of Jericho'? What's her name (Jane?), the murder victim, had one too.

    Somehow, old Morse eventually got downgraded to some plastic fantastic Jap music centre crap; he even began playing pre-recorded operatic cassettes at home, and not just in the Jag.

    The opening sequence of High Rise also has a Transcriptors turntable - possibly a homage to Clockwork Orange...

    Wasn't there a Rega deck in What Women Want ?

    Indecent proposal If I remember correctly it was a VPI TNT. Did it have a linear tracking tonearm? I seem to also remember that it had an ET-II tonearm.

    Rankin’s Rebus owns an LP12/Naim set up too.

    Craig B Re:trophile

    I only caught a few episodes of Rebus before packing it in with cable/broadcast television for good.

    I do remember thinking that, other than Morse, a lot of these DI types seem too dark and moody (if not necessarily downright sociopathic) to be kicking back and enjoying a proper hi-fi, or any music for that matter. Morse certainly could be both but he also had a strong interest in the arts.

    I've pretty much given up hope that Rebus would appear on Netflix over here in Canada. We do get quite a few UK cop shows otherwise. Really enjoying Endeavour; of course his record player isn't worth spotting but his record covers (and the motor cars) certainly are.

    linnfomaniac83 I bet you can’t wheelie a unicycle!

    I don’t recall, however I’m sure Big Melons had a tasty Mark Levinson setup in that movie.

    Was it connected to a Mark Levinson setup?

    I recall Gene Hackman has a cool hifi in The Conversation (1974) (one of my fav films) I have not been able to identify the deck or amp.

    Also I used to have the same Sansui amp as John Cuzak in High Fidelity - SU888 I think.
