eBay watch: 1960s Dansette Viva record player in mint condition


Yes, there are plenty of cheaper Dansette record players on eBay, but none in quite the condition of this 1960s Dansette Viva record player.

It's described as being in 'perfect working order' and 'stunning condition'. Indeed, you might well think it was a new model. That's because the turntable, motor and inner workings have been serviced, any worn parts have been replaced, it has a new plug, new stylus and the casing has even been re-upholstered. It's almost perfect, but still has that valve amp for a rich, vintage sound.

Check out the other photos on the listing to see how impressive this is. £89.99 is the current (and opening) price. If you got it for anywhere near that, it would be an absolute bargain.

eBay watch: 1970s Philips 22 GF 623 portable stereo record player


Once again, a portable turntable catches our eye, this time the Philips 22 GF 623 portable stereo record player.

Dating back to the 1970s (you might have guessed that), this is a three-speed player that's both portable and stylish, not least when the whole thing packs away into a cool orange 'briefcase'. See the listings for lots of pictures of that.

But once unpacked, this battery/mains player will play your 7 and 12-inch vinyl in glorious stereo. Well, stereo – not sure about glorious from an old portable player! Seller does sat 'very good sound though. Condition is 'very good', with just a few age scratches and of course, it's in working order. £24 is the current bid price.
