Here is my very cool looking and nice sounding 1963 PHILIPS MIGNON battery operated 45rpm record player. Imported from Germany, this record player, or "plattenspieler" operates on 4 size "D" batteries and has a hefty amplifier and speaker. I installed a new PHILIPS needle and this beauty sounds GREAT!

I added a special treat for all you vintage audio fans and removed the top cover so you can see the record while it is playing. I chose a 45 with a nice colorful label to add to the effect!

I just love those old record player machines! Congrats, man. I'll say a
little prayer for you, just for posting it !!! Thanks!

Author joe f (3 years)
fyi i lost the ebay auction! i bid up to $72 and figured that was enough
for a record player that didnt work,lol.of course the winner bid a dollar
more and won

Author grassulo (3 years)
one of my friends moms has one of these she wanted me to repair for her,
after a good cleaning, lubrication, adjustment and a new stylus the thing
sounds AMAZING, I cant believe how LOUD and clear such a small battery
operated unit can play, says something for the quality of real built in
holland philips products!

Author ppoobah (2 years)
Check that....... This song was first released by Aretha Franklin in 1968.
It was later released by Dionne Warwick circa 1974....

Author vinylman86 (6 years)
wow, i never saw anything like it before. i have a 1982 pioneer
front-loading direct-drive turntable i got recently from ebay, but it needs
a needle and a belt for the loading tray mechanism. it can play odd-sized
records because the tonearm has a sensor that detects the record size.

So cool !! I've shown this clip to several people!!

Amazing and very good sound too. Has it ever damaged a record when ejecting?

Author frangiul13 (3 years)
@chompo7 OMG, that is too funny!!! I definitely will be rooting for you.
These Philips units when working, sound great, and yes, people don' t have
a clue. How can someone leave corroded batteries in something like this and
expect it to work???

Author clydesight (5 years)
That is so Cool! They just don't make stuff like this anymore! Than ks for
the video!

Author joe f (3 years)
@frangiul13 lol im already watching it! i thought the same thing about the
corrosion being the problem. i just a commodore tiny transister phono from
the 60's and the seller said it didnt worked fine for me.amazing
how some people have no clue,hahah.thanks for the heads up and wish me luck!

Author frangiul13 (5 years)
Thanks for the comment!!

Author joe f (3 years)
@frangiul13 thanks frank i have been looking on ebay but my italian is
rusty,lol.regular ebay i cant find any!

Author frangiul13 (3 years)
@chompo7 There currently is a Philips on eBay, but it's a bit older than
mine. The seller could not get it to work, but he took a pic of the inside
and it looks like there are two D size batteries that have been left in
there. Probably some cleaning of the terminals may get the motor to work. I
couldn't post the link here, but do a search: VINTAGE PHILIPS SLOT 45
RECORD PLAYER and you can see it :) :)

The arm looks like its made from an erector set! lol Cute and clever though!

Author frangiul13 (5 years)
Thanks for the comment! Yes, this is quite a unique little player :)

Author frangiul13 (5 years)
No damage to the records. The tonearm lifts up and out of the way, and the
turntable lowers when the record is ejected.

Author Madness832 (5 years)
That's pretty sweet! But you should have left the cover off so we could see
the rejection process.

Author frangiul13 (4 years)
@ComedianHarmonistNL Thanks for the nice words!!!

Who needs CD's when you have this? It's an amazing record player, I've
never seen one like that before, so cool.

Author frangiul13 (3 years)
@chompo7 Ciao, Giuseppe! Come Stai? I rarely see those, and when I do, they
are usually on eBay. But they fetch a pretty penny. That's usually the
place where you would have luck finding one. Try going eBay International,
and maybe you can buy one from overseas. Good luck!! :)

Author frangiul13 (5 years)
Thanks for the comment. No records have been damaged. When the unit ejects,
the tonearm automatically lifts up and away from the record.

Author Falcons66 (6 years) are good at tracking down gems. I seem to always get burned on
the Ebay ones, and then cant seem to get money back because I relist them
with honest descriptions. Anyway, Mega cool. I need to broaden my search
terms! Havent found an Arvin yet either.

Author ppoobah (2 years)
@riotpir1972 it's actually Aretha Franklin and its from 1968

Author frangiul13 (5 years)
Hi, This is a 45 player only, and the record slides over the adapter, which
secures the record in place in order to play.

Hey Rickenbacker, I got this about 4 years ago, and I think I paid about
$35-$40 at the time. Probably worth more now. Haven't seen one like it
since. Thanks for watching my videos!! :)

Thanks for the comment! Good luck with your EY-2 restoration!!

this sounds great!
