  • Recommendations for a portable record player for digging

    Folks

    If anyone has a recommendation for a portable record player for digging, please post here.

    I'm extremely wary of anything Crossley, but only because they are known as vinyl killers.

    If it could play 78s as well, that would be perfect ... but I know that's too much to ask for.

    Do many of you use such a portable?

    This has been discussed at various times in the past. The below thread is still valid if you want to go vintage

    ...if in doubt consult your dealer.

      A lot of people have the Audio Technica Soundburger. The only downside is that it's probably too fragile to toss into a bag.

      I've also seen people recommend the Columbia GP3

              Sure it is. Cheaper than ever actually on the eBay.

                I saw a Crossley brown suitcase jobbie in Sainsbury's earlier pity they weren't selling anything you could actually play on it! I don't think those silver discs in the 'Best of Ibiza 2015' box that was nearby work on them.

                  Well something weird's going on because if I type 'Ion LP 2 GO turntable' into ebay nothing comes up. Loads of Ion turntables but not the 2 go. Also Amazon says unavailable and it's not in the store section of the Ion site.

                      I get this on the German site 'Dieser Suche folgen'.

                          Your link works but even if I use the exact same phrase 'ION Audio LP2GO' I still get 'Dieser Suche folgen'. Anyway it's definitely not on Amazon and I'm pretty sure it's not available from ION. If your's is refurbished maybe that's all you can get now and they're all at 'Ionaudiodeutschland'. Anyway it was nice to have that little cross-channel chat- I could have been wasting my time working.

                            So you cant order it? Feedback seems good looks like they are clearing out the inventory.

                              I think they only post to German addresses, it's blocking me Finland anyway. The sellers name, ionaudiodeutschland, suggests they only sell within Germany too.

                              On the subject of portables, I've had my handy trax since they came out and it's still going strong. Not as small / cheap as those though.
