We have said in the past that you can always get better value on a vintage record player if you are willing to look past the ‘Dansette’ name and look at other brands of the era. This 1950s Ekco RP329 valve record player on legs is a case in point.
A long title, but hopefully it tells you more or less everything about this Marconiphone portable record player currently on eBay.
It's a stunning thing, described by the seller as a 'timeworn' and in 'as new' condition – over 50 years on, that's something. The case is in a two-tone pastel design, while the deck plays 16, 33, 45 and 78 vinyl through its valve-based audio system.
Even as a piece of design, it's worth mentioning, but it's a practical item too for vinyl lovers. See a shot of it closed up over the page, with the price currently at a bargain £29.99.
