Vintage Bluetooth Record-Player
Art Deco record player equipped with Bluetooth to enjoy, in addition to records, your playlists and songs from your favorite music platform, as well as a recording function to digitize your precious vinyls.
It contains a 160 W class D stereo amplifier combined with two 80 W speakers (the original speaker had a power of 1W!). On the rear panel, knobs allow to adjust the bass/treble to correct the quality losses of aged vinyl.
The turntable is a Philips AG 2140 with a new motor, new needle and new cartridge. It can play 33, 45 and 78 rpm records. The French turntables of the 50's were designed to play mono and stereo records, so the swivel cartridge contains two matching needles and allows the playback of modern recordings.
Its auxiliary jack allows you to connect to it via wire (and make it a vintage amp for an electric guitar), it's also equipped with an FM tuner.

History of the radio
This was one of the most popular models built by Philips!
Philips was founded in 1891 by Frederik Philips and his son Gerard. The father, a banker, financed the acquisition of a factory in Eindhoven, where the company began to manufacture electrical components. After a difficult first few years, during which they almost went bankrupt, Gerard's younger brother Anton joined the company. As an engineer, he quickly brought fresh ideas to the table and the business grew rapidly. In the following years, the family laid the foundations for the multinational electronics company. In the 1930s they marketed the very popular "Chapelle" radio, and in 1939 the first electric razor.
After World War II, Philips produced vinyl turntables that we love for their robustness. The company contributed a lot to the Art Deco movement, seeking to move away from the natural lines of Art Nouveau into more abstract modern forms. After 1960 came the tape players, then other technologies.
