Jeff, this is awesome! The Puck equivalent of a disc player. The motor construction seems to be identical to my Puck Lyraphone. Are there any markings anywhere on the machine or base that could identify the maker? I'll need to keep my eyes open for one like this, I like it. 8-)

Thanks for sharing
Andreas

I did inspect thoroughly this gramophone but didn't find any marking so we just called it “the mystery gramophone”!
For the horn, the shape and red color are similar to some Zonophone horns sold in Europe.
I don't have data on Bettini pucks and as well no Bettini machines whatsoever!

The Ecco is a handsome little machine Brian. A nice looking design.

Brian,
Love that Ecco - have never seen one before... it reminds me of my Playerette.
