It's a very good starter table, and looks good too. I used one for a while in the 80s

Can anyone tell me what is the brand? I see R D but when I search the web I can't find anything like this.
I found one just like that but instead of R B 609 it's Philips.
Thanks

When I saw the cylindrical top of the headshell, I immediately thought 'Philips'. But you already got there.

Definitely Philips, and the 'R D' name and model would be 'Reader's Digest' by the looks of the logo.

Presumably it was either sold through the magazine, or used as a promotional item for subscriptions. In Australia, Reader's Digest branded radio / cassette players were quite common in the 1970s.

Had I heard of this company back in the '80s....I'd have snatched one of these in a heartbeat!!
Simple but classic design -- along the lines of the AR XA....but with an OAK plinth (rather than walnut....)....
Were it mine.....I would NEVER think of parting with it!!

It's cute as all get out. But I have no idea of the maker. Possibly the player is simple enough that you can figure out how to get it up and running. Good luck.

Thank you for your post.
I cleaned the changer and now it works :D
But it's interesting for me the name of the manufacturer
With best regards,
Vladimir

I hope you will post agin if you get more info. I like the look of your machine. I am curious which cartridge is in the arm. The knob reminds me of early 1950's cartridges. Did you go inside the case to see if there was info under the changer? Sometimes there is a paper label under the platter as well.

Hello,
One man from another forum helped me to identyfy the unit. It's 1955 Regentone with Collaro changer.
Here it is the video from YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h02NgyC0qfY
The cartridge is ACOS HI-G. I cleaned it thoroughly and 33/78 needles plays fine.
On the other side of the changer there is a stamp. But mainly unreadable. The only thing I understood, that the unit was made in 1955.
With best regards,
Vladimir
