eBay watch: 1970s Fidelity HP42 portable record player

We love an item with the original packaging on eBay – which is what you get with this Fidelity HP42 portable record player.

Not just the original box, it also still has the manuals and the 'London Design Centre' award label attached, which only adds to the attraction. If you love vinyl, the player isn't bad either.

A typical portable player with three-speeds, tone and volume controls and a 'locking' section where the mains lead is stored. There's also a carrying handle for taking round your mate's house.

According to the selling, it is in 'used' condition, but has been 'stored away for years'. £50 is the current asking price. More images on the listing.
