    I had to make do with a standard Bush radio cassette recorder instead (I started a Philips Roller cassette recorder thread on here a few years ago). The Noise Abatement Society would have sided with my "next-door-but-one" neighbour at the time, in which the number of decibels needed to be monitored closely when in use. A headphone socket was supplied of course.

    Mind you, the hi-fi with its graphic equalizer which as a Christmas 1987 present (along with records and tapes to play on it) did almost the same job.

    I had one or two Heather yeah. One was smaller and the other massive. I recall as well how people took to walking about with Ghettoblasters instead of Portable Cassette Players./ I never subscribed (or even thought of subscribing to the idea/trend) but so so wish I had now!

    OK there were lots on the market in the 1980s, I had a Grundig one that might still be in my parents garage, but might have gone in a clearout, knowing them.

    Is that the record player in the form of a slot to put the record in similar to ones they had in cars? The car ones died the death as the records they played would get scratched due to road vibration
