The RCA 45-J is an AC operated 45 RPM record changer. The turntable is a model RP-168, which holds up to ten 7 inch fine groove records. Uses crystal pickup with medium output voltage. This model does NOT have an amplifier or speaker. Cabinet is a maroon plastic made to look like bakelite.
The RP-168 series is the first generation of 45 RPM record changers. 85 parts made it expensive in production and vulnerable in operation. Was succeeded in 1951 by the RP-190 series of much simpler design.
