Don't know about the t/t but my daughter bought a set of the MS many years ago (look very similar) and they were very musical.

First link doesn't go to tt. Just Gumtree.

 

Only ever seen good reports on those MS.

As a brand, Sanyo produced some good gear, but also produced some absolute crap.    This turntable looks very run-of-the-mill for the era.  I think the price is quite high considering the brand etc.  Personally, I would wait and find a better bargain.

I got the price for the speakers and turntable down to $300?

Without having done further research, I would say that the Sanyo turntable looks OK for an entry-level turntable.  I would never trust a secondhand stylus, so factor in a stylus replacement (you should be able to find this online, look for the cartridge model and google that). 

 

FYI, I'll also add (as you said that you were new to this), that your amplifier will need to have a "phono" input to plug the turntable into.  Older amp's have these, but newer ones don't, and will required an additional "phono preamp" aka "phono stage" for the turntable to work.
