A superb example of a Dansette Conquest Auto from 1959. Recovered in red and white rexine.



A superb example of a Dansette Conquest Auto from about 1959, recovered in new red and white rexine. Cleaned inside and out with a new mains cable and fitted with a 3 amp fuse. The internal electrics have been checked and several components have been replaced where necessary. The brassware has been replaced with exact reproductions, except for the side catches which are original. The front knobs are all original and have new reproduction labels. The rare BSR UA12 turntable has been cleaned and re-greased and works at all 4 speeds with the auto-changer. It’s fitted with a new high output turnover SX6H cartridge which gives very good sound and volume and is wired for stereo to mono, so it’s safe to play stereo records as well as mono 45s and 78s without any damage. The original speaker grill material was in poor condition, so it’s been replaced with a covering that perfectly compliments the brass elements of the front and really sparkles. There are two 7″ x 4″ speakers which gives a much better tonal response that other Dansettes which usually only have one speaker. This would have cost 26gns (£27 6s) in its day, which was a lot of money, and was in the higher range of Dansette players.

This is suitable for legs if required (at an extra cost), but was not fitted with leg plates originally.
