If the price of a decent Dansette has got a little much for you (and we really wouldn't be surprised if that was the case), you should check out one of the other vintage options up for auction – this like this 1960s Marconiphone portable record player.
A long title, but hopefully it tells you more or less everything about this Marconiphone portable record player currently on eBay.
It's a stunning thing, described by the seller as a 'timeworn' and in 'as new' condition – over 50 years on, that's something. The case is in a two-tone pastel design, while the deck plays 16, 33, 45 and 78 vinyl through its valve-based audio system.
Even as a piece of design, it's worth mentioning, but it's a practical item too for vinyl lovers. See a shot of it closed up over the page, with the price currently at a bargain £29.99.
