eBay watch: 1960s Dansette RG.31 with legs


Not just another Dansette, this Dansette RG.31 comes with legs and a radio.

It dates back to 1964 and has apparently been serviced, so it is in full working order and 'very good condition'. Those legs are original too. The RG.31 has a four-valve amplifier, with controls for treble, bass, on/off and wave change. The latter for the built-in radio, which is tuned with the dial on the front. To finish things off, the bakelite Dansette emblem lights up when it is turned on. Check out the listing for the full lowdown.

Complete with a replacement stereo compatible cartridge and brand new stylus, the Dansette RG.31 is currently at just £1.60 right now. Definitely one to keep an eye on.

eBay watch: 1950s midcentury Grundig radiogram


Yes, there are a number of old audio systems on eBay right now, but I'll wager there's nothing else like this Grundig radiogram.

In terms of design alone, it's a stunning piece of furniture. Out of the 1950s and offering up some cool midcentury style, it looks immaculate, despite pushing 60 years old. Check out the plethora of images on the site to see it close up – we can hardly see a mark.

It's also (just as importantly) in full working order, the radio and the record player, which you'll find by pulling down the cabinet just above the speaker. You can see that in action over the page. Oh yes, you can also wire up your modern-day electronics to it – that's also shown in action on the site listing. Downside? The price, with the seller asking £840, although you can make an offer.
