Vintage Portable Record Changers Tube Amplified - Mono


©2010Ultraelectronicative.com
Record Changers

allow to stack records for automated uniterupted play - in other words: one would NOT have to get up to change the record until the stack is exhausted, becuase these amazing machines does the changing automatically.

The Record Changers shown on this page are the first upgrade away form Record players. This means: like record players usually stand alone and self contained, to have a built-in amplifier and speaker.

The record changers shown on this page come form a time when 78's were still in production. Thus any of these units will be perfect for 78's and 1950's mono LPs, but basically play all record types. It is said though: If having valauable mint condition collector records from a later manufacturing date, such as the 70's and 80's, a turntable or Hi-Fi record changer from these time aearas will treat your records more gentle. Some of the players shown here may have 78 only, but most offer 78 and 16 RPM in addition to 33 and 45 - thus also equipped with both sylie for 78 and LP. 16 RPM non transcription records was a format of the mid 50's to early 60's - allowing with the lower speed to double the play time compared to records of the same size. If needing 16 RPM: all of my units are labled as to what speeds they provide.

Portable units, as shown here in general are self contained - nothing else needed to play recrods, but as a in world of their own, they do not provide inputs or outputs to connect to other audio devices. This basically menas: Records can be played, but not recorded. So, If you want to record form records: have your record changer custom modified, or get one where I already performed the needed work. For that please pay attention to the details in my item descriptions.

Most record changers shown here are tube amplified, which means nice vintage sound, but also a lot of work to restore - to work properly and relaibly. Please remeber that my prices are based on the amoutn of work that was performed.

Description: This is a USA made RCA table top record changer / AM radio form 1943. The unit was upgraded at some time in the past with a nice quality USA made Voice of Music Record changer chassis (4 speed - 16, 33, 45, 78 with flip over stylus for 78) form 1968. This is quite an upgarde as the changers form the 40's were "clunkers" that due to heavy trackign force and coase tone arms were hard on the records, plus likely the original player was for 78 only, as micro groove records (such as LPs / singles) were not yet available. The installed changer is modern, meaning: it will play all record types in all sizes and also will be perfect for precious records, as very low tracking force and the dimaond needle will treat records gently. The changer serves 7" 10" and 12" records at all 4 speeds: 16, 33, 45, 78 RPM automatically or manually. So play records with the convenience of a mondern changer and get truely vintage sound from a tube amplifer/radio form the 40' in a nice wooden casing, which adds it's own quality to sound. Naturally: made in the 40's this unit is mono. The radio / amplifier section of this unit is original, using wax paper capacitors that are well known for their sound. As I found these in excellent condtion, which is rare, may it be: well preseved, or replaced with original parts decades ago , I decided to leave them in place. - Bring back memories by playing your favourites in original vintage sound from decades years back! Please note that these early units do not perform to hi-fi standards, but have their own vintage sound form the time, which many appreciate, and: If the lid is open or closed has significant influence over how the unit sounds.

Condition: The unit shows typical signs of use and age, but is overall in good to excellent condition. There is one item to mention: The glass of the radio dial has a crack on the right side (visible in the photo). This likely happend many many years ago, possibly the lid was droped - some one had glued the broken off peace back on. I reworked that and it looks much better than before - the previous glue was applied quite thick. The unit now is fully and reliably working, likely for decades to come without trouble. workign condition: works reliably and smooth and well in all apects: radio is senstive and received well, souds great and the changer runs quiet and smooth. A nice unit to have!

Work perfomred to recondition this unit: Even though working, I decided to completely refurbishe the record changer chassis. This to know that the unit will be reliably working for decades to come.Work performed: Nearly a complete tear down of the changer chassis: degreased, cleaned and re-lubricated all mechanical parts, Inspected and replaced rubber parts, such as motor mounts, some lever guides. Re-worked surfaces of drive parts. Amplifier / Radio: As adescribed above: Wax-Paper cap were found to be in good condtion - so I decided to leave in place. I did replace the electrolytic filter capacitos in the power supply. These appeared to have been replaced in the 70's and due to life expectancy I replaced them again. De-oxydized all controls and switches (and the tuning capacitor) with quality contact cleaner. Other work: complete cleaning and detail work. Full functional test: OK. The unit works smoothly and sounds great.

Lot: 1 RCA USA made tube amplified table top all in one record AM radio with VOM record changer as described above with original tubes installed. Used good flip-over stylus for 78/LP.

Vintage Multi Speed Record Changers - mono and stereo, tube and solid state

These units will be REFURBISHED TO ORDER:

2-7 Weeks Lead Time - The goal with my work: to bring the equipment back as close as possible to original specifications and to provide reliably working condition for decades to come. This takes hours and hours and HOURS of paistaking detail orineted work. Thus prices based on the amount of time and parts needed (some are quite hard to find! - which again takes time!) to achieve this goal. Prices for the items shown below in fully restored condition typically are $300-$900. As dedicated work time to focus just on one project is in short supply, the best time with the fastest turn around woudl be to order any one of these units will be in the summer ( - May through August - ), as at other times I may NOT be able to serve you very quickly, especially during late fall, winter and the first two months of the of the new year. A note: Rushing it and vintage audio equipment, or pushing for "discount prices" do not go together! Quality work takes as much time as it takes, to do it right - and right the first time! - And: often for the type of equipment of this age it takes to get back into it, over and over again, to improve and tweak until all is perfect, so that is can ship in top condiion! If needing to rush: Please inquire for these units in "AS-Found / AS-IS" condition - I do not compromise on the quality of my cratsmanship! Thank you for your understanding.

What is the difference between Record Changers, Record Players and the differnet turntable types?

Record Changers
allow to play multiple records automaticly without interuption. A stand alone record change rusually provides amplifer and speakers.
© ultraelectronicactive.com
Record Players
are usually one piece stand-alone playback devices that have all needed components built in, which includes a built-in amplifier and most often buil-in speakers. Some record players feature detachable speakers. Most Record Players do not provide and audio output and therefore are not suitable for transfering or recording. © ultraelectronicactive.com

Turntables are usually component type Hi-fi Stereo players that hook to an external amplifier or receiver. Almost all tunrntables output at "phono" level to hook up to a "phono" input. If no phono input is present a Phono-Preamplifier is required. See below for sub categories of turtnables: © ultraelectronicactive.com
Record Changer Turntables allow to play multiple records automaticly without interuption but do not include any amplifier - designed for hook-up to stereo equipment. If your amplifier / receiver does not provide a phono inputl, a Phono-Preamplifier is required © ultraelectronicactive.com

Automatic Turntables
are usually component type Hi-fi Stereo players that hook to an external amplifier or receiver. Automatic turtnables serve records automatically (user presses a button - the turtnable moves the arm) soem have auto repeat functions, but none allow to stack multiple records. Tunrntables output at "phono" level to hook up to a "phono" input. If no phono input is present a Phono-Preamplifier is required. © ultraelectronicactive.com

Semi-Automatic Turntables
are usually component type Hi-fi Stereo players that hook to an external amplifier or receiver. Semi-Automatic turtnables require the user to place the tone arm to play a record, but when the record has played the the turntable moves the arm back to it's rest and shuts off. A less expensive variation of semi-automatic players turns the motor off when playing is complete, and the more disirable varation of thsi sub category lifts up the tone arm and shuts the motor off. Tunrntables output at "phono" level to hook up to a "phono" input. If no phono input is present a Phono-Preamplifier is required.
