eBay watch: Vintage DiscaSet portable radio and record player with carry case

Note all articles are independently researched and written by myself. However, if you buy via one of the links it may be an affiliate and I may earn a small commission.

Now this is unusual, but the DiscaSet portable radio and record player is a rather cool little thing.

Presumably dating from the 1960s or early '70s, it looks like a radio. Indeed it is, playing FM and LW reception. However, this device also players records – 7-inch records at 45rpm – with control via a push button. There's also volume and tuning controls, along with the original carry case and the owner's manual. We would guess having all of those items together is pretty rare.

The seller points out that it has no dents, but just a little paint damage to an edge on the bottom. Otherwise fine, with the unit in full working order.

A novelty, but a practical one for sure. It is up for £150.
