Very nice. That's a turntable that's not seen much in the U.S. Do you have the original mat? It was quite innovative as well, having an oil layer under the surface.
Hey! 1917 Recording of "Silent Night, Holy Night";, on Flickr I see that some of you here have 78rpm playback systems, I even noticed a few early acoustical machines here. Cool! So, here's mine to join the 78rpm club. Here's my 1902 Victor Type E Talking Machine with Victor Exhibition Reproducer. I bought this machine back in 2007. It is a beautiful machine with original brass bell horn and pretty much all original, a great survivor. Although, about a year after I got it, one of the spring broke, it was a scary experience. Luckily there are still people around the US who specialized in fixing these machines. So, I got both springs replaced and the entire mechanical parts overhauled. So, this should last me another 100 years or so. I rebuilt the reproducer myself with parts bought from phonograph store on internet. It is a fun machine, every time I cranked it up, I'm always amazed by it that is actually work at all. Well, it is fun listening to acoustically recorded Caruso belting out an aria like "La Donna E Mobile" on this machine! And since it is a Christmas Eve tonight, here's my machine playing 10" Victor 45145-B "Silent Night, Holy Night" performed by the Trinity Choir. From info I've gather, this disc was first released in 1917. Anyway, have a Merry Christmas and a great Holiday Season everyone. Buddy
Vintage , what r your speakers ?
I still remember this machine. It delivers the performance unedited from such a long time ago. With all the advance of technology, I guess modern equipment has technically edited most of this communication out with the performers.
