                                                                                Dansette Conquest 1950's Record Player 
                                              ********** Fully serviced by Qualified Engineer 30 years experience**********

Here we have a beautiful Dansette Conquest from the 1950's /1960's . It is in full working order and has been extensively tested to ensure reliability .   

Cosmetics
The overall condition of the player is in very good condition, the Rexine covering is intact and has no rips or tears and is the original colour , this has NOT been repainted , just left original .
The clasps are the original coloured gold. The front grille and badge are in very good order with no rips or bits missing . The deck , knobs and internal decal are in great order and benefits from the original handle being intact with no cracks or splits.

Mechanical / Electrical
The mechanical service entailed a full strip down , full internal clean, full re-grease / oil of all moving parts.  The electronic service included replacement of all original capacitors with uprated modern stable equivalents (yellow polypropylene) that will give decades of trouble free service all resistors have been changed and are far more stable than the old types.The rectifier valve shows good emissions  . A new 2 core mains lead has been fitted along with a 1 amp mains fuse .  The reason for these parts to be replaced is one of safety and stability. The Mullard output valve has been checked on an AVO valve tester and shows good emissions . A brand new original stylus set for 33-45 / 78 has been fitted to the original cartridge . The cartridge has a good level of output and is in very good condition . The play setting has been cleaned, re-greased and adjusted correctly for optimum precision , now works as smooth as a Swiss clock !

Electro-static Tweeter
This is a rare feature on this Dansette, It contains an
ORIGINAL Electro-static Tweeter, Which delivers an accurate and crisp top end performance . The tweeter is in A1 condition and is the best one I have seen and heard . In my own opinion it makes this model far superior to the Dansette Major.

Acoustic Performance
The sound has its original characteristics , with good volume and tone.

All in all this player should last years in the right hands . A very rare and sought after player that has a good pedigree .

POSTAGE
I will send via an insured courier and it will be double boxed with protection inbetween the two boxes . Due to the fragility of this item, idiotic couriers that seem to think parcels are footballs and expensive Paypal costs I would prefer cash on collection if possible .

Viewing is welcome on this item, (bring your own 33/45 for your own sound comparison if you like !)

I can be contacted on (01482) 325462 , Please feel free to call with any enquiries you may have
Thanks for looking !
