Description

A superb example of a Dansette Conquest Auto from about 1960/61. Cleaned inside and out with a new mains cable fitted with a 3amp fuse and earthed. The internal electrics have been checked and 5 capacitors have been replaced. The brass hinges and catches have all been replaced or cleaned. The front knobs are original and have new reproduction labels. The BSR UA14 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 BSR SX6H which gives very good volume and is wired for stereo to mono, so it’s safe to play stereo records as well as 78s without any damage. The original speaker grill was in poor condition, so it’s been replaced with a speaker covering that perfectly compliments the brass elements of the front and really sparkles. The are two 7″ x 5″ 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.

The rexine covering is original but has been sprayed with a vinyl dye to to give a new fresh look which keeps the original texture. The old stereo output at the back has been disconnected (as it’s wired for mono) but the connector remains for historical purposes.

The legs and leg plates are new and exactly match the originals.
