I have been using the ACT II electronic reproducer for several years for
this purpose. It is excellent for its price range and with a change-out of
the cartridge can be used for both 2- and 4-minute cylinders. It's easy to
use also. It fits onto the phonograph where a normal acoustic reproducer
fits, and then connects via RCA jacks to your recorder of choice. Note that
the signal must be amplified to line level before acceptable recording can
be accomplished. I use a microphone input on my mixer.
