Capehart Amperion

Capehart Amperion in large home model cabinet

Homer Capehart was always on the lookout for promising record changers that could be incorporated into his phonographs. He bought the rights to the Amperion record changer and began to market it as a lower cost alternative to the Orchestrope. Although commercial models were available, the Amperion, unlike the Orchestrope, was focused more on home use. The Amperion was introduced in 1930 and manufactured for only a few years.
