As all record collecting junkies now, there is nothing like finding a crusty old killer 45 at a record fair and then giving it a spin on a battery powered portable deck.
Well now you don’t have to scour the pages of Ebay to buy a second-hand one of those portable stereos as DJ specialist Vestax has brought its Handy Trax portable record deck to the UK.
Retailing for £85 the Handy Trax has a built-in speaker, headphones socket, pitch control and line out/line in connections. It works on either mains or using batteries and comes with its own rather neat carrying case.
Go to Vestax on www.vestax.co.uk. Vestax also has another retro turntable, the BDT-2500, which sells for around £260. You can get it from Intasound
