Hey guys I was looking for a good portable record player and I actually have heard good things about these Fisher Price record players like the 820 model ( I think this is the model that madlib had pictured in the Brazil photos) and the 825 model even the Big Bird one. My main question was, do these have RCA outs or any kind of output jack or just that external speaker? I was looking for something light and battery powered so I could take with me when hunting for vinyl. From what ive heard the sound reproduction on these isnt bad at all and is at least on par with some of the models in the <$100 range. If they dont come with outs, do any of you have experience with modding an output jack on them?

Would you recommend the 820? I was looking in to either getting one of those or the 825. Does the 820 have the option of running on batteries? I know some of the models like the big bird one can. I think I will have to end up opening it up and modding a headphone jack but it shouldnt be too hard to be honest. Just patience a few components and a soldering iron should be all you need

Try using a swich. I moded a casio PT-100 adding a output jack and a swich to change jack output to the original speaker output.. Some swiches even has a screw on the socket for the wire so you dont need to solder.

I was about to suggest this. Read a tutorial, boy a cheap toy keyboard from goodwill to practice on, then move on to install a 1/4 or rca to the unit yourself
