eBay watch: RFT Bruns Joker 1970s portable record player

Joker

We've featured a few portable record players in the past, but this RFT Bruns Joker portable record player is a model we've not seen before.

A German mains-operated player from the 1970s, it plays 33 and 45rpm records, pumping out that sound via the two matching stereo speakers. It's also in 'very good' condition, aside from the odd age-related mark and works perfectly.

All of which makes the current £1 price tag something of a bargain.

Crosley Revolution CR6002 portable record player now available in the UK

Crosley

Some of you might remember that last month we said that the Crosley Revolution CR6002 portable record player was available in the US. At the same time, we said we we expected Urban Outfitters to jump on it in the UK eventually. Well, it just has.

The Revolution is a reworking of the Sound Burger, that favourite of the crate digger, offering (we presume) the same features as the US model, which is portable record playback at 33/45 speeds, full range stereo speakers, battery power, an FM transmitter for firing music over to your audio system wirelessly and a USB socket, so you can easily transfer vinyl to digital formats.

Not sure about instore stock, but the player is available online right now in the ivory colour right now, priced at £165.

Only one bid as yet, making this Braun PS 2 record turntable by Dieter Rams something of a steal.

Designed by Rams back in 1963, it's a classic piece of modernist-inspired Braun (and Rams) design for vinyl playback at 16, 33 and 45 speeds. it's described as being in 'full working order' and in 'excellent overall condition'. Age has played a part, so check the full details and images before you bid.

But it is worth bidding if you like this kind of thing – right now it's only £1.
