Went to see this biographical dramatisation at the cinema and can thoroughly recommend it. If you go look out for the little bit of Hi-fi nostalgia. Freddie Mercury puts a vinyl on in a promoters office, it looks like a Garrard 401 with SME 3009 S2 arm with detachable headshell and a Shure M75 series cartridge (not sure which version EJ or ED?). He plays some opera then turns down the volume using the middle knob on the turntable!? this is in fact the pitch control not a volume control. There are some other bits of Hi-Fi in other scenes but sure what they are; a Revox amp, reel to reel machines and various speakers.
