In 1906 the Victor Talking Machine Company created a new line of phonographs with the turntable and amplifying horn tucked away inside a wooden cabinet which they trademarked with the name Victrola.

Victrolas became by far the most popular brand of home phonograph, and sold in great numbers until the end of the 1920s. RCA Victor continued to market phonographs with the Victrola name until the early 1970s.
