Description

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 Radiohm Malette M2000 with a restored motor, new needle and cartridge, and new drive wheel from original factory stocks. It can play 16, 33, 45 and 78 rpm. The 50's French turntables 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

Imperatorwas a branch of Reela launched at the dawn of the 40's. Reela manufactured radios from 1942 to the 1980s. Their innovative design, rooted in the Art Deco movement, quickly allowed the company to grow to occupy an important place in France and in North Africa. Their first factory was located on Rue des Pyrenees in Paris, it moved to the 18th arrondissement in 1950 and other factories were opened, while Reela, in addition to its own models of radios and record players, manufactured radios for other brands. In the late 1950s, Reela diversified into television and car radio models, and the venture continued until the 1980s.

Radiohm was founded in 1934 in Paris. They first manufactured parts for radio sets but soon started designing record players. After the war, they moved to Montreuil. They made record players throughout the 1950s and then ventured into tape players. Over the next decade, they returned to their roots and again specialized in radio parts, as the audio business was changing too quickly for a small company to keep up. They are still in business and are known worldwide for their potentiometers.
