A few weeks ago I bought a record player for a few quid at the local flea market. Even though we already have a nice vintage Marconi record player that’s in great shape and sounds fine, it has two disadvantages: 1) There are no external connectors, so all the sound comes from the built-in speaker. That’s fine, but it prevents you from either listening to your records with headphones, or to record them somehow (unless you use a mic at the speaker, of course). 2) The player is a mono player only. Again, that’s fine for playing both mono and stereo records, but of course you won’t hear any left-right differences when listening to stereo records. This second record player was supposed to fix both of these problems. It did, however need a few modifications.
