Steepletone Rico Blue/Green 60’s Style Stereo Audio System
3-Speed Record Player with Integral CD Player, MW-FM Radio, Aux-in Playback and MP3 Encoding & Playback
Whether you want to hear your old LP records and singles or embrace the vinyl revival, this record player will play your music with style! Enjoy the analogue sound of your original 33, 45 and 78 rpm records and discover new artists who have chosen to release their music on this much loved audio format.
Sharing its name with the famous trombonist, ‘Rico’ Rodriguez, this machine will bring an authentic sound to your music just as the man himself did when he played with the likes of Prince Buster, Don Drummond and latterly, Coventry 2-Tone act The Specials. The body shape of this neat machine is based on a 1960’s record player, with lift-up lid and splayed legs. In keeping with the two tone association, the finish is in two colours, sage green and cobalt blue, similar to the finish of the classic Dansette player manufactured throughout the 1950s and 1960s. The machine plays CDs as well as records and also incorporates a radio, with a dial mounted on the front between the built-in stereo speakers.
The Rico plays at three speeds, 33/45 rpm records or the older 78 rpm LPs and includes an adapter ‘biscuit’ to insert in the middle of those records which have a large hole in the centre. Playing music on this machine is very easy, simply lift the stylus arm lever and the platter will rotate, move the arm across until the stylus is above the outer track of the record, lower the lever and leave the arm to gently lower the needle to the plastic automatically, while you sit back and wait to enjoy the music! This machine has some desirable modern extras, such as a top loading CD player hidden beneath the turntable platter and an MW-FM radio controlled by the tuner dial. The legs can be detached if preferred and there are sockets for a line-in Jack and a stereo headphone Jack (headphones not included). There is also a USB port & SD card slot for playing MP3 & WMA music files.
Whether you enjoy traditional jazz such as Bix Beiderbecke or Louis Armstrong, 40’s swing from the likes of Glenn Miller and Tommy Dorsey, or rock’n’roll legends like Elvis Presley and Little Richard, this extremely cool record player will revive these glorious musical eras. Perhaps you have a collection of vinyl sitting unplayed in the loft or garage, classics from the 60’s, like The Rolling Stones or The Kinks, or their punk descendants The Clash and The Sex Pistols. You might want to revive 70’s soul classics from Marvin Gaye or bring it into the ’80s with Whitney Houston and Madonna. Whatever your taste or musical inheritance, the Rico will help you relive these musical memories. Many contemporary bands such as The 1975, Lana Del Ray and Adele now release their music on vinyl; and classic albums from the Beatles to Oasis have also been re-issued as LPs. Take part in the revival of a classic audio era with this stylish machine which will grace any interior style, from mid-century to contemporary.

Steepletone was founded in the early seventies and has always been associated with music reproduction, with key products including record players, music centres and radios, which were originally assembled in the UK. Manufacturing from scratch ensures an understanding of what it takes to make a good product, so when production was moved to the Far East in the eighties in order to remain competitive, an office was established there to ensure that product development, design and production retained the high standards established by Steepletone in the early years. The product range has expanded to include several types of record player and a range of vibrant juke boxes, as well as radios, novelty telephones and alarm clocks, all produced to the high technological standards and the stylish design aesthetics that are the hallmark of Steepletone.
