The Viva-Tonal was Columbia's competitor to the Victor Orthophonic, the first use of a scientifically designed, exponential horn in an acoustic phonograph. All large Viva Tonal models seem to be more scarce than their Victor equivalents. Although at $275 the Viva Tonal 800 was priced $25 less than the Vival Tonal 810, judging from the number of surving examples most collectors would agree that far more model 810s appear to have been manufactured.
