RARITY: ¤¤¤ VALUE ¤¤¤
The 12-25 was a fully electronic phonograph set in the upper mid-price range, introduced in early 1927. It paired a Victor turntable system with an RCA audio amplifier. Production lasted less than one year. The cabinet used a mahogany veneer with a blended stain effect.
The 12-25 sold for $625.00. This model was replaced by the more affordable VE 12-15 in 1928 when the cost of electronic components began to drop (due to increased production efficiencies and higher demand for radio electronics).
Approximately 2,184 12-25 phonographs were produced, making it a relatively rare model.
