Congratulations on a great piece, thanks for sharing. I love the original cylinders in original case. A great combination.

A delightful little machine and most impressive in performance compared with other systems of the time. Who can say what would have happened if Lioret had only made his flywheel big enough to bring the wandering pitch under control?

What a great machine - i've not seen one of those before. Out of interest are the cylinders celluloid or something else? Thanks for sharing those pictures and video.
I am interested in all forms of audio media including: gramophones, phonographs, wire recorders, the tefifon, reel to reel tapes, radiograms and radios.

Thanks for your comments.
And yes, phonoradios. The cylinders are made in celluloid, and you must to put a drop of mineral oil throught the surface before playing them.

Does the machine use a jewel tip stylus?

Yes. The Lioretgraph does use a jewel tip stylus.

My reproducer is a sharp steel tip no added stylus. Identical machine plus full original carry case. Perhaps a close up of the stylus tip would be helpful. Thanks for sharing. L Hawes
