I have just listed this 1900 Zonophone Type "C" Phonograph on Ebay:

What is the difference between this Zonophone Model C and the early Zonophone Home? I have an early Model Home. To my untrained eye, they look the same to me. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

Harvey,

The Home cabinet is slightly larger, the brake is different, the support arm nut is on top of the bedplate and has a slot for a screwdriver, and the crank is offset and not in the center like on the early A,B,C.

The Home was an evolution of the C, and to the untrained eye, they look very similar. I'm not sure but it seems to me that the Home also had a stronger motor. The Home I used to have could play thru about 1 and ½ 10" records.

Bob S.
