I was thinking about buying a Triumphon portable machine from an auction site. It's 12" x 10" x 5" and looks like a miniature HMV 102.

Any experience with these?

Here's a picture. It's probably an 8" turntable.

I missed it too...family was saying the rosary. No sweat. Record players run second to religion...

(Which proves how important they really are! :D )

You missed it and it went for $27.88? How does that happen? Since you claimed "dibs", I passed on it, but would have bid $100 and skipped the rosary...
