Does this count as a radiogram? Perhaps, as this 1960s Dansette RG 31 has both record player and radio functionality packed in.

This particular Dansette has been fully restored and serviced and now looks 'superb', according to the seller. The amplifier has been fully serviced, all the old leaky capacitors have been replaced and several resistors have also been replaced to ensure the best possible sound quality. The MW / LW radio has also had a thorough service and now works perfectly with 'very good reception' over all the wavelengths.

The player has also had its old mains flex replaced, the record deck 'thoroughly serviced' and a new BSR X5M Stereo cartridge and BSR LP/78 flip over stylus fitted. It is also fitted with its original Dansette legs, which is always a bonus.

It's on at £125, which sounds a fair price in light of condition and work.
