It's far from a perfect example of an A250, but I enjoy playing it every day. I can't interest most of my friends in the hobby and posting pictures doesn't do it justice so here is a You Tube Video I made for my own amusement playing one of my favorite records.

My friend, what a showman you are!!!

Your phonographs are fortunate to have such a loving home. You don't go hog-wild as a collector but rather lavish attention on a select few machines--and I know how proud you are of that A-250. As you know, I very much agree with your taste in music and best diaphragms for Edison reproducers. : )

Here's to a great 2018 for you and your family!
