eBay watch: Dansette record players

Yes, we know they're not hugely friendly with your rare vinyl and the sound quality isn't anywhere near your average home audio set-up, but there's still something very appealing about a vintage Dansette record player.

Prices on eBay vary from a few quid to over £200 for a mint and restored model. It's pretty much down to looks and condition where any model lands on that spectrum. The 1960s model above stands out a little from the crowd thanks to that colourful interior and polished surface and also offers a Monarch deck, four speeds plus treble and bass controls. Reasonable (if not perfect) condition too.

Right now it's selling for a reasonable £4.59, a price that's sure to rise before auction end. If you miss out on that, search for others, there are plenty available.

    I bought a 1961 Dansette Bermuda from eBay in red & cream, its absolutely fantastic and the quality is sound (excuse the pun!)
    Highly recommend a shop called Ians Vintage Electronics – he fully restores himself and offers superb post-sale service.
