Philco 49-1401 – THE BOOMERANG Radio and Record Player

Philco model 49-1401 radio/phonograph. Produced in 1949, and played 10- and 12-in. 78-rpm records automatically. One of Philco's last 78-rpm-only record players, the model 49-1401 became known as the "Boomerang" by collectors due to the Boomerang-shaped speaker section. Besides the unique shape, it was also one of the first front-loading automatic record players. Just flip down the front door, slide your favorite 10- or 12-in. 78-rpm record in the front like today's CD players. The record started playing automatically. – SOLD
