The Motorola Calypso Model #3H24 portable record player, 1957 print ad

(click to enlarge)

This lovely portable made of fiberglass ("miracle material") gives off an "amost acoustically perfect" sound due to it's "three hi-fi speakers" and the "baffle" lid that projects the sound like a "bandshell." You can even tweak your sound with the bass and treble controls.

All for the lovely price of $79.95 (which in today's dollars from
inflation, would be $594.46)

"Looks and carries like an expensive overnight case"
