The Puck cylinder phonographs mounted on a wooden box which has no utility except to look more luxurious than the ordinary cast iron base ones were called Kastenpuck.  As the other ones, they have a leveling screw.  The drawing of the lyra is still here.  As shown below, some were able to record as well.
