Gramophone is a modified version of the phonograph, invented in 1877, by Charles Cros and Thomas Edison. German-born American inventor Emile Berliner decided instead of cylinders for recording and playing back sounds to use disks. The new invention was called a record player, and was patented on September 26, 1887, by Berliner. Records originally were made of hard rubber, then of shellac. The world’s first phonograph record was zinc. The main advantage of the phonograph, gramophone record, was improved and loud sound (already in the first models — in 16 times, or 24 DB). Combined with the ease of duplicating entries, this provided a quick victory of the Gramophone.
