Philips GA 207


This two speed record player is a supreme example of advanced technology in new materials and their application combined with well proven construction methods.

In order to minimize rumble and wow, use is made of a belt-drive system and a low speed synchronous motor, in combination with a free floating sub-chassis for turntable and pick-up arm, a construction that has been used already with much success in earlier models.

Features of this record player are the automatic return of the pick-up arm to it's rest position after playing a record and a direct stylus force indication by means of a calibrated measuring instrument.

It's headshell with universal slide-in cartridge support can accommodate cartridges with the standard 1/2" mounting distance.

The viscosity damped pick-up lift permits the pick-up arm to be raised or lowered without touching the arm.

Speeds: 33 and 45rpm
