eBay watch: 1970s Schneider space age portable record player

Sch2

Yes, I know – we feature a lot of portable record players. But that's because they always prove very popular and in many circumstances, they offer up some great period design. This Schneider portable record player certainly doesn't disappoint on that score.

Described by the seller as 'one of the coolest and most desirable' portable players, as as well 'a really rare and hard-to-find object', it's a mains-powered player than spins vinyl at 33, 45 and 78rpm, offers better than expected sound and of course, has those great space age stereo speakers. It's also been featured in L'Utopie du Tout Plastique, the benchmark of cool space age design.

But what we love most of all is the packaging, the whole thing folding down into a cool orange briefcase, perfect for taking the party with you. It's described as being in 'really good used condition' and is complete, which makes the current £1 price tag an absolute steal in our book.
