WIFI vintage Record-Player!
It contains a 160 W class D amplifier combined with a 160 W full-range speaker (the original speaker had a power of 1W!). On the rear panel, knobs allow to adjust the bass/medium/treble to correct the quality losses of aged vinyl.
This device can be used as a "simple" record player with a very good sound quality.
Flip the back switch and turn it into a WIFI and Bluetooth connected speaker. You'll be able to use your phone or tablet to stream your playlists or your favorite music platform.

The turntable is a completely rebuild Philips AG 2140, as is the motor. The needle, cartridge and drive wheel are new. It can play 16, 33, 45 and 78 rpm and accepts all sizes up to the 12 1/4 inch 78 rpm, the largest ever made. The turntables of this era were designed to play mono and stereo records, so the swivel cartridge contains two sapphire needles and allows the playback of modern records.
History of the radio
This is only the second Le Régional device we have found. There are only a few vague references of the brand on the net, indicating a production ranging from 1932 to 1970, as well as an address... we are still looking!
In 937 : Société Le Régional – 39 Avenue du Roule, Neuilly / Seine
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.
