The Archeophone pages - links to other websites :

Created in 1998, Archéophone is the only modern device able to play all formats of wax or celluloid cylinders, produced between 1888 and 1929, and even later. These sound recordings are fragile and wear very quickly if they are read on vintage phonographs. Archéophone, which allows the transcription of the cylinders on CD, is now used by the largest Archives which preserve such media in the world : The Library of Congress, Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Edison National Historic Site, as well as other private institutions and collections. On these pages you can listen to mp3 recordings of cylinders, and find many information about the history of old recordings.
