If the current clutch of modern-day remakes doesn’t do it for you, there is the option of an original on eBay. Specifically this fully restored 1960s Dansette Bermuda record player with legs.
It looks pretty much as new as those remakes too in the images. That is, of course, down to the restoration. The old and damaged cloth as been replaced with new, the player has been stripped and cleaned inside and out, obsolete and worn out parts replaced, the valve has been serviced and cleaned and a new mains cable replaces the old one.
The BSR Monarch deck will play records at four speeds, with an auto changer holding up to eight records at a time. Controls to the front of the player cover power, volume and tone.
Looks amazing and if you want an authentic sound, this is likely to sound amazing too. A lot of interest already in this, but at £185.09 right now, that’s only a little more than a remake.
