Form said "Invalid Entry" for me--I keep seven.

Victrola XIV (old reliable)
Victrola 2-65 Portable
Brunswick Panatrope (my 1900s iPods)
Victor III Talking Machine (loud enough to hear across the street)
Edison Standard Model A, 14" horn
Amberola 30 with broken trim and no grill (runs great)
Edison Standard Model E, nearly totaled

Living at home :roll: so I packed these machines into my bedroom. They look nice individually but it's starting to look kind of like a gramophone museum!

Four are on display and running currently. The two portables come out when I want to play Orthophonic records.


I'm still living at home too, so most of my collection in my bedroom as well. There's a total of 11 machines in my bedroom, including a Victrola 8-35, and 3 more uprights. There's another 3 or 4 machines in the basement. My poor parents :lol:

Nate, I can't wait to see what you do with an entire house! :)

In my living room? None! :lol:

In a sunroom which is connected to the living room, I have a VV-360, 7-30, DD WM-19, a few garbage tabletops, and an RCA 66X13. Not to mention my turntable that I use to make digital transfers of 78s.

In my bedroom, I store most of my 78s, an RE-45, a Recordio, and an odd Pal portable.

Amberola 1A
Victor 6
Hardy tinfoil

In just my living room (parlor)... 20 machines that play music one way or another. There's a few more elsewhere in the house and garage. NONE in the bedroom!
