    Smile Microlift - bit of vintage hifi

    Found this going through stuff during lockdown - (belonged to an uncle who was an early audiophile, contributed to “Gramaphone” and compiled the WERM - World Encyclopaedia of Recorded Music). It’s never been used as far as I know; I guess it dates from the 1950s. Not sure about value - maybe offers over £10 - best offer after two weeks secures, if that’s permitted.

    Quite sought after by users of Decca arms. You've quoted a starting price, so that should be fine.

    Well it cost almost 30 shillings (or £1.50). Assuming that figure dates from 1950, then using https://www.bankofengland.co.uk/mone...ion-calculator, £1.50 translates to around £52 today, so your initial asking price of £10 is quite reasonable.

    Good luck with the sale.

    I guess so - had no idea what it might be worth, so thought I’d invite offers. But happy to fix a price - at say £50 along the lines of Barry’s inflation-adjusted suggestion? If that keeps everyone happy?

    I'm not suggesting you fix the price at £50; all I was saying was £1.50 in 1950 translates to ~ £50 today.

    Given that the item is unused and comes in the original box, I would have thought £20 - £25 would be a reasonable figure.
