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,

I cannot help with identification, but if it really is as old as you guess then it will very likely need some electronic repair before it works properly and is safe to use. Most capacitors from that era are extremely unreliable and should be replaced as a mater of course. You would need to be comfortable with soldering to do that. It would also likely need some mechanical work.
