For some reason people stopped using gramophones a while back. Maybe it had to do with those gramophones not being strikingly beautiful objects handmade by Caruso in Venice. Or not having a body constructed with oak from the 18th century and a gold-plated horn option, like this one. Or maybe it’s because the gramophones of yesteryear weren’t Bluetooth-enabled, like this one. Yeah, that’s probably it.
