Introduced in 1927, the Victrola 8-30 represents a modest redesign and continuation of the Orthophonic Credenza. Minor appearance changes were made to the cabinet and moldings, but in size and tonal reproduction the 8-30 is essentially the Orthophonic Credenza under another name.

On these later machines the turntable was offset more to the right and a shelf for record storage was placed beside it. The tone arm bracket was cast of pot metal, often found cracked, as seen in this example. Larger image
