Hello :-)

Here is my €10,- fleamarket find :-D

It is a nice and vintage Aristona (Dutch philips) micro tower :sin:

25 cm wide and really heavy!!

it works via headphones well, but as there are rather odd speaker connectors I cannot try it via speakers at the mo :thumbsdown:

I believe it is late 70s early 80s :afro:

It is a Aristona

the loudspeaker connections are a little round hole and a little wide hole!

there must be a way to get something for that so I can use normal loudspeakers!! :-D

walkgirl you can easily and safely connect 'regular' speakers --
with 2 wires from each speaker ...

just insert one wire end in each hole -
and make sure to place enough tape in between these 'leads'
so that they never can touch each other

I was in right, these connections are same like on Studio 1 m :yes:

This plugs was common on European audio equipment on 70' and 80' and I think thats is easy to find in local electronic shop for cheap.

Wow Nicole, very stylish.

The speakers connectors are available, and were known as bar and pin connectors I believe...

Ummm...first it has to have a battery compartment. You make those too? :lol:

[

It's likely the indentions are so you can stack the units in any confuguration you want with the pieces sliding. :-)

Thanks peopels!

Yes I believe oldskool96 is right!, you can stack it to your own taste!!

I hope there would be a small record player for this set!, but as about
this one almost nothing is to find on the internets a matching record player
is totally difficult I thing : :thumbsdown:

Aristona is a sister brand from philips in Holland just like Erres, they did have
the same models in their collection!!, but just often in a slightly different colour.
like the phliips skymaster walkman, that was available in red and white and black from philips,
fro aristona and erres it was also available in blue!! :sin:

so perhaps there is a matching record player about in the philips or erres brand but then maybe
in dark silver or even black!! :sin: :thumbsup:

just have to find a scan from an old brochure with some model numbers in it :hmmm:
