Direct Designs (of Crawley in Surrey) was marketing the DRS1 and DRS3 in 1976. From the images on the advert below (from Hifi News, March 1976), the complete plinth/base is now one unit, made of Teak veneer. It has the distinctive FP2001 onboard controls, but the JBE style platter is gone, replaced instead with a conventional platter on the DRS1 and three massive discs on the DRS3. Interestingly, the advert mentions Micro Seiki Microsorber feet, as found in the later JBEs. The hinges are also the same too.
Direct Designs DRS6
This turntable came to light via Hifi Hangar in Bordon, Hampshire. Interestingly, in contrast to the advert above, this unit does have a JBE style platter and is branded a DRS6 because of the six discs (as opposed to three discs on the DRS3 etc).
