Hello everyone,

earlier today i found this old philips record player in my grandma's attic. I have no idea how old it is, but the records still spin. I was wondering if it would be possible to get some sound out of this baby. There is one cable for audio output, but I don't have any idea which kind of speaker/box I need.

Could you help me out? Also, would it be possible to identify this record player? You can find some the pictures below, please click on the thumbnails.

Thank you for your help and have a merry christmas,

Cool! In that picture you can see the optional fat "45RPM changer spindle" that fit down over the standard thin spindle. That explains the trick little slider button located at the end of the arm that held the stack of records in place.

One final word of advice...
Don't plug it into the wall until you verify that its power requirements match those of your country. Wouldn't surprise me if it were 220V/50Hz which is a problem in the US.
