Vintage Black Box Hi Fi Record Player


According to Gramophone magazine in 1955, “Never before had so compact a unit provided this high fidelity reproduction with such a room filling quality of sound.

We’re pleased to report that this wonderful vintage record player has found a good home and is making beautiful music once more.  It was last heard playing Carly Simon’s ‘You’re So Vain”, and bringing a tear to its new owner’s eye.  We love it when our customers like our vintage sounds as much as we do.  It must be a bit like letting go of a puppy.

Part of the charm of this record player was its simple wooden box.  lt looked great with the lid down, plugged into an mp3 and letting out a gentle glow.  Although it was called The Black Box, we think this refers to the name of the valve amp inside it and not the cabinet.
