  • Description

    A view of the machine with its compartment for large cylinders opened. The Ediphone Voicewriter was the most durable cylinder phonograph. It has an electric motor but acoustic reproduction and recording. It employs six inch long cylinders, for extra playing time, and remained popular long after Edison’s domestic phonographs ceased production in 1929. These phonographs were preferred by many users to tapes, because it was possible to go back a few seconds if an individual word was unclear. The BBC transcription service used them into the 1950s. Dimensions: Width: 400 mm Heigh: 900 mm Depth: 400 mm
