Cool phonograph! 8-)

Unfortunately, though, the forum here tends to concentrate on antique phonographs and gramophones. Most of our "stuff" dates from the 1930s on back. Yours classifies as "vintage" to most collectors--but man, nobody said "antique" or "vintage" is better. Those old German-built machines are extremely cool.

But basically, most of our stuff still has a crank on the side to start it with. Our records are usually old 78rpm heavy shellac discs, or wax or celluloid cylinders by people who have been dead for decades. Our idea of "hi-fi loudspeakers" is a nice cygnet (swan's neck) horn to attach to an old Edison machine!

You'll probably have better luck moving it on the Antique Radio Forum. The people over there are fairly chilled-out so that might work for you.

You might try these too:

http://antiqueradios.com/forums/index.php -- similar to but broader than TMF. Includes a phono section that is likely date appropriate.

http://antiqueradios.com/clubs.shtml -- you may want to contact the group closest to you.

Good luck,
George P.

I find it kind of ironic that we balk at the idea of electronic sets of the late 1950s when one considers that the orthophonic machines were a good deal younger (less than 50 years) when I became interested in collecting phonographs in the early 1970s.

While I don't quite know where the cut-off should be, I do have an appreciation for these machines on some level. My folks had a 1959 Perpetuum-Ebner Rex turntable that fascinated me to the point of wanting to know more about the history of recording. Almost 60 years later, our old P-E is becoming a piece of history itself.

If I had the room, this would be an awesome machine for a 1960 retro-party. I wish the seller good luck and hope that (he/she?) won't be a stranger here.

I agree. When I bought my first Victrola XVI in 1967, it was 53 years old and seemed ancient. But today a conventional 1966 stereo (also 53 years old) just seems "old." How is that? Would it seem "ancient" to most 13 year-olds? Probably... I guess it's I who is ancient! :lol:

Actually, I was surprised by these responses. I tried to delete my post this morning after reading the advise above of other sites. I found the edit button, but never saw the delete posting one. if the webmaster reads this, please delete my listing. I pressed the "x" and thought it was gone. Apparently, not.Thanks again.

A few years ago a friend's 18 year old niece came to my mother's house, saw my mom's 1970's 8-track stereo phonograph, and had absolutely no idea what it was. Then I took her to the Diamond Disc machine I had in the house, cranked it up and played it for her and she was practically speechless. Of course she took out her smartphone, made a video, and posted it to the internet immediately!

torrance1252,

I'd just leave it up on this board. Sure, it may be a bit off-topic, but not so far off the path that it need go away. I was serious about being interested if I had the room. I wouldn't be surprised if another board member may have a "mid-century" hideaway where this could live. In any case, good luck with the sale.

these West German postwar tube type stereos are great. We have a 1958 Telefunken behemoth in the living room and it's all original and never had an issue. They were using printed circuit technology with tubes way back then. At half volume, the bass shakes the house.
