I saw a Telefunken radio/record player combo on the Goodwill website (which I am NOT buying). However, the record changer looks a lot like a VM 900 series changer. I am curious to know if VM made changers for Telefunken?

Those early Telefunken changers were made by VM. The plinths, tonearms and controls were designed in Germany.

Interesting. After I posted, it occurred to me to send a copy of that photo to Gary at Voice of Music, and he said much the same thing. It's pretty clear that it was made by VM or a clone. Here is his reply:

Hi Ed

Telefunken licensed certain technologies from V-M Corporation but made their own parts, changed them, their own changers in Germany. What you saw is a TW 504 changer.
