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 1953 Teppaz with a restored motor, new needle and cartridge, new original drive wheel. It can play 33, 45 and 78 rpm and accepts all sizes up to the 12 1/4 inch 78 rpm, the largest ever made. 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

Sonolor is one of the legendary Art Deco brands, whose style stands out. Established in Paris, they took advantage of the post-war period and good designers to make a place for themselves in the small club of French radio manufacturers and became prominent at the turn of the 1960s. Attracting foreign investments, Sonolor was bought in 1972 by ITT (International Telephone and Telegraph corporation) which sold it to Nokia in 1987. The last Sonolor products were released in 1989.

Teppaz was founded in 1931, it was the first French brand to market a 78 rpm turntable in 1941, and remained the main turntable manufacturer until the 1970s. The brand specialized in portable record players, amplifiers, speakers and telephones. Teppaz was bought in 1988 by J-C. Sensamat, president of the company of the same name with the ambition to continue the audio lines of the brand. The company still exists, but seems to be limited to import-export, we have not found any reference to their audio systems.
