About the Philips 22GF403 suitcase record player
The Philips 22GF403 suitcase record player was introduced around the early 1970’s. It can be used to play records at 33, 45, as well as 78 RPM. There is a speaker and amplifier built into the chassis. There is also tone and volume controls.
It has a plug for AC power, or it can run on batteries, making it a completely portable record player. It has a battery compartment for 6 D-cell batteries.
It was available in various colours, such as green, blue and red.
Inspiration for modern day Crosley
The Philips 22GF403 has served as an inspiration for the modern day Crosley Spinnerette CR6016A, and by inspiration, we mean an almost 1-on-1 copy with USB functionality.
Currently up for auction

One of the units is in good working condition (the one on the right on most pictures). On the other one the headshell has broken off unfortunately, but it is technically working. The units have no battery damage, and include the original Philips power cables (not photographed).
The exact model number 22GF403/03X, where the 03X likely refers to the colour.
We ship worldwide, or the units can be picked up locally in North-Holland region of The Netherlands.
