You're right, it is awesome to watch. So far, it has performed flawlessly!

Here's my RCA Victor New Orthophonic HiFi console (model SHF6). I recapped it a few years ago and it still sounds awesome for only mono.

I rebuilt this for my grand-daughter to show her what her mom used in the 60's. Now my grand-daughter uses it a lot and has been collecting 45's.

That's awesome you rebuilt that phono for her, I'm sure she appreciated that and will continue to enjoy that old Dynavox for years to come :D

I have a collection of 1. An Edison Amberola 30 serial #55190, Patent March 11, 1913. Cabinet #15.
I have 38 rolls and am looking for an instruction manual for proper use. This belonged to my paternal grandparents and just found it's way to me. I remember listening to it as a small child. And am very excited to listen to it play.

I appreciate any information knowledgeable collectors care to share.
Thank you.

This is my Victor X. Restoration is a tricky term here. When I was young this model was in the basement of the house my parents bought over 50 years ago. As a child I had no appreciation for antiques and would beat the daylights out of this. I would take the tone arm and slam it to one side to see how many times I could make it go back and forth. When I was 12 I built a huge haubted house (total fire trap!) in my basement with walls of blankets making winding pathways through scary scenes. I placed a severed head dummy on the turntable of this which by now had no tone arm because of my previous mistreatment.

When I got married my wife and I rented the first floor on the other half of my parents 3 family home. I took this unit and had someone redo the finish and I went online and found all the missing parts I needed. I put more into it then its worth and its still not perfect but I have a new appreciation for it and I play it every Christmas while we decorate the tree. It has been a part of my kids life for their whole existence. I just recently purchased some antique phonograph toys which are activated by the rotation of the turntable and occasionally I will purchase another record for it. The latest one is called "powerhouse" and if you heard it you would recognize the tune as the one used in a lot of looney tune cartoons where a factory or assembly line was shown.

These are a couple of my Edison players. I love the simplicity of the machine and consider them to be the greatest invention in a "bang for the buck" kind of way. For the investment of a rotating cylinder, a stylus, diaphragm and horn, you can perfectly record and replay the human voice, music or sound. Even multiple instruments and voice playing at the same time are captured and reproduced almost perfectly. Quite an invention.

Aside from my two cylinder players, an Edison Standard and an Edison Home, I don't usually buy phonographs.

There were some extremely rare phonographs there from the estate of Nick Monios of California. There are pics of many of them here:

Thank you, the original finish is Faux Zebrawood on these, but I veneered it back to the exact original pattern and (near as possible) colors.

thanks for the info.

i believe there was a top line aircraft carrier magnavox that put two horns on each side.

i was wondering if that was it. your front speaker design looked like one i saw in a pic that had the two horns on each channel.

1955 Magnavox, 4 6V6 outputs, Woofer, even bigger woofer, two Horns, Mono of course, separate amplification for the lows and highs.
I've had this for about 20 years, somewhere on this site, assuming it wasn't lost in a crash at some point, is a post I made when I got it.
It still works great on it's original parts, with the exception of the FM radio.
I started to recap the radio but never got around to finishing it, maybe now I will.

The picture of the back is not mine but basically the same.
