Default Radiogram Identification. (Marconiphone ARG23AE).

Can anyone help in identifying this Marconiphone Radiogram - I think it has a generic Thorn EMI chassis used across multiple brands and the turntable is a generic Garrard:-

Just a passing heads up- it's a live chassis machine. The mains transformer is just an auto type. The aerial and earth connections are only isolated by capacitors which really should be Y-class.

As the original autochanger has been long removed, it would be as well to check that the 1966/67 replacement Garrard autochanger is correctlly isolated from the chassis.
