Princess radio / phonogram

Princess portable AM radio & phonograph, model # RPH-210
runs from mains AC 240 volt and takes 4 x c size batteries; takes a ‘diamond’ needle

I am unsure where this machine was made, and in what year – but someone out there will know. The housing is made from timber, and all the working parts are steel. The radio dial is a funky, transparent plastic and will find an AM station from 5-16!

The sound quality is a little tinny – as the speakers are housed in the body of the system and the machine needs a new stylus. It can handle both 33 and 45 records, and while the battery housing has lost its little cover the rest of the machine in good working order.

I bought the ‘Princess’ soon after the ‘Jetset’ [see post – way, way below] because the appeal of playing vinyl, anywhere – at a picnic in the park for example- appealed to me. I have collected vinyl [records, that is] from when it wasn’t considered collecting and playing my old records is  both joyous and hilarious. Always good for a laugh!
