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.
