SonnyPhono,

Thank you so much for the little video. It is fascinating.

Some good input from others as well. I do think repeaters are neat, but they aren't very kind to Sound-Boxes in general.

Regards,
John

Listening to the Victrola fifteen minutes a day will alter and brighten your whole life.
Use each needle only ONCE!

I think repeaters were mostly for use on dance records, which could be considered expendable- by the time the Latest Hit wore out most people would be tired of it anyway.

Yea, I probably will only use the repeater when showing a guest my phonographs. It is too violent! :) I will put a better video on in a couple days with better light and will use a tripod. :D

Great! I haven't ever seen one like this before. It will be nice to see what this goes for as it's in similar condition. Mine doesn't have any rust and the box isn't broken at all. But very similar.

Thanks for finding this!
