Earlier this week I posted a link to photos of Pete Verrando's Commodore micro turntable. Here's another micro turntable. This one was made in Italy and looks even nicer. The owner, Johannes Roussel, described it to James Graham of Retro Thing:
"I own a record player that is very similar but made in Italy by a company named Mo-El in Milano. Mine can play 45 and 33.
It has the same kind of small wheel that drives the record from below. It has no amplifier but instead includes an AM transmitter that works in the 250 to 300 m range. You have to put a radio next to the record player in order to play the music.
