I heard this machine demonstrated a few years ago at Union with some very rare pre 1900 records, and it sounded excellent. You see many on these groups are machine collectors,and dealers. Many machine collectors, slant little to the left,politically, so they don't really enjoy the records and their history, as they find it offensive, and are more interested in the mechanics of the machine, and hope that they can find more Jazz,Which is rare, for a reason, it was wonderful and fun music, however was not popular with the masses of the population at the time. You see Hymns, sentimental ballads,comic popular music, marches and minstrel shows, were what the real majority of the public listened to, and Opera,and some light classical thrown in too. It does not seem to play other than standard records, but with the right pre amp and attachments, it is about the best sounding transcription machine I heard, and sounded to me better than the archeophone.
