We have a fully working Alba LP707 portable radiogram.
This model was introduced in or around 1953 to supplement the original Alba “Model Seven-o-Seven”. The LP707 was designed to play 78, 33 and 45 RPM.
This is in excellent working order. As you would expect it shows signs of use commensurate with being around 65 years old, but it is in very good cosmetic condition given its age.
Play it inside, play it outside – take it on a picnic. This is your chance to buy something unique and experience a working example of music reproduction from the early 1950’s.
Alba advertised the product as follows:
The first AC/DC Battery portable radiogram to play radio or records indoors and outdoors. Housed in a case so compact you would hardly believe it contains a really efficient radiogram, 4-valve 2 waveband superhet radio. Garrard spring-drive motor and pick up unit. The amplifier operates on mains or batteries, giving full volume and excellent tone from moving coil speaker.
