Does anyone know how much this cabinet record player is worth? It has been in the family for a while now.

Best Answer

If this is still in good working condition and both the radio and record player are working you unit is worth $180 to $250. However, if the record player or even the radio aren't working, then the until will only sell for $50 to $75.

I own a RCA Victor record player/stereo. The speakers go up top with speaker covers, not included, (where the DVDs are stored). The record player goes in middle drawer (not included). 2 other drawers pull out as well. It is very heavy. It has the RCA Victor logo. How much is this particular piece worth?

I can't for the life of me figure out what this is worth. It's been in my family for 4 generations. It is a Symphonic record player, model 148-33T, but the actual record part is a Garrard model 1025. It is a stereo with an 8-track as well. Photos attached any info would be very helpful!!

Turntable part is worth about $200. The furniture would be extra.

Worth of a record player.

Step 1
I searched E-Bay your item is not there.


Step 2
You can go on list what you wanted and they will make sure they e-mail it to you when it becomes available.

Your console may be more valuable than some as you have a very good brand of record player as well as an 8-track player.

  • There are quite a few console record players listed on eBay but I did not see any record of a Symphonic player but I did see a set with a Garrard player.
  • https://www.eba … io-/201667241990
  • You can find a lot of different brands of consoles listed on eBay but the one thing you will have to note: almost all sets are "pick-up-only" which means they are too costly to ship.
  • This also means a buyer would most likely live within a few miles of your location and this limits the number of potential buyers to a very small number.

  • You can try and get an official appraisal but that would be for insurance purposes as very few actual sales meet an appraisal price/value.
  • Here are some links for similar consoles presently listed on eBay. Note that asking prices run from $50 to several thousand and the brands and condition also widely varied.
  • http://www.ebay … le-record-player
  • https://www.eba … ole&_sacat=0
  • Here is a link that shows consoles that sold and these prices and brands vary also.
  • https://www.eba … d=p2045573.m1684
  • Here is a link to a company that sells consoles and you may find something similar in their listings. They also appraise consoles but you can email them and ask for a quote.
  • https://www.aud … om/vintage-audio

If you wish to sell and are unable to find anything similar I would suggest you take a lot of photos and list it on eBay for several thousand dollars and see if you receive any inquiries - you can continue listing for several months (listing is not expensive but selling fees can run to 13% of the selling price).


If a value only is what you are looking for then you may need to pay for an official appraisal.

I have a Harmograph type H5135 working talking machine. I cannot find out how much it is worth. My intention is to sell it.


February 19, 20181 found this helpful

I only found out from this website that it was $113 in the first year of its sale https://www.rad … raph_h5135s.html

I would contact a dealer or for their help.

I have a True Tone vintage coffee table record player with a certificate of authenticity. It works great and is in very good condition.


I can't seem to find anything similar to compare it to so I know how much to ask for. Thank you.
