My 12th machine bought last June is an HMV Model 3 hornless tabletop (HMV versión of the victrola vi) in oak. It has been temporarily seated on the top of the right loudspeaker of my modern record player system. A solid walnut box 24" high. Watch it in action here

The location can be peeped at 1:40 and again at 2:40.
It's in the main bedroom... On the top of the left loudspeaker stands another small hornless tabletop, my HMV junior Model (kind of small victrola iv). This is the machine featured in my avatar. This made number 11th, was the latest acquisition until the big brother arrived. It can also be seen in action herein:

In the middle of both, a cloth covered table supports the turntable, amp and equaliser. In the video that table can be peeped at the left of the Gramophone. Well, what you see is a black silk cloth covering the amp, to avoid dust...

I have 19 Victrolas in my living (Victrola) room. You can tell I'm single.

I had 9 in the living room until we were preparing to put our house up for sale. The real estate agent strongly recommended reducing the clutter to make the house more marketable. So I reduced the number in the living room to 2 (Credenza & HMV 511). The rest went into temporary storage. The house sold, and we have moved to a different state.
Best regards ... AZ*

One Victor VV-XIV, but then again there is also a harpsichord in the room. However, the front parlor has an L-door VV-XVI, a Sonora Concert, a Columbia De Luxe, and an Edison Home, while the dining room has a Victor 8-12, a VV-210, a Victor D, a VV-XI, and a Granada X, and the entry hall has a Credenza. Things do have to get moved around in December to make room for Christmas trees.
