Like a proud father here are pictures of my new record player. It is anything but an infant.
Record not included.
The speakers are surprisingly powerful at 20 Watts. RMS? I'm not that techy. It's loud enough and they also slot neatly on top as a lid for portability. Not that I'm carry it around because it runs on mains. There is a quirky autoplay function that lets you perch a record on top of the spindle, as that contracts the record drops down onto the rotating surface before the stylus moves onto the groove.
Make sure you have it set to the correct size otherwise the needle will could miss it's mark causing all sorts of unexpected noises. Perhaps I should just post a video!
It was purchased from the amazing vintage shop Speedie's on Redchurch St. Anything older than 20 years is vintage.
