As a satisfactory alternative, if you have a turntable with a P-mount or 
universal-mount cartridge, one can buy a cartridge.stylus designed for 78 records. 
Play them at 45 rpm and then use  audio editor software to change to  the 
"correct" speed without changing the pitch.

But they are still produced. Technics still make 'em and at around GBP 400
retail I s'pose they are a bit on the pricey side but they will also play
33/45rpm discs. Numark and other brands also produce turntables which include
78rpm for about half the price.
