- EMG offered to covert customers old gramophone to the then new EMG sound system. They also offered conversion kits so customers could do the conversion themselves.
- This conversion dates from around 1928/29. The HMV Junior Grand was the cheaper "Grand" with storage for records.
- Apart from the conversion kit, the motor was also upgraded to the superlative Garrard Super Motor.
- The conversion was pictured in Frank James' The EMG Story on page 35.
