** The 8-4 was an Orthophonic Victrola, introduced in mid-1926. It fit between the Granada and Credenza models, offering a larger cabinet and folded-horn than was provided on the smaller machines. A notable characteristic of this model is it's relatively "boxy" appearance, making it sometimes difficult to fit into the corner of a room. Regardless, it sold moderately well for a upper-medium priced machine. It was available only with a mahogany finish, and included an automatic brake and gold plated hardware. Most 8-4's have a felt-tipped wooden record support structure on the left side of the motorboard, but the earliest production versions do not. Otherwise, all 8-4's are identical in features. The 8-4 was discontinued in 1927.
Measures 45"h ** top of cabinet measures: 27-1-/2 x 21-1/2"
