Q std...tuew twL nL o'L4 WAs w By Deems Taylor Here was a battered souvenir that dated back to the earliest days of disk recording. Another record had recently been re-made from one of the old cylinders . . . the original itself worn almost through the wax in many places. Others I chose because the compositions were notori ously hard to reproduce. Even the Meissner, I thought, will be lucky to get anything worth while out of these five .. . And now I stood... my arms filled with records no longer needed. For the first few bars of the very first record had proved the truth of all those amazing things I ,had heard about Meissner reproduction. And, record by record, the evidence mounted. It was the most con vincing tonal demonstration I had ever heard. Deems Taylor, distinguished composer, critic, and author, had just been listening to the only Meissner radio-phonograph in existence- the final laboratory model perfected just before war turned all of Meissner's skill and knowledge to the manufacture of vital war supplies. Luxurious counterparts of the Meissner, how ever, will bring postwar riches to all the lovers of artistic perfection who have long been irritated by the "missing elements" in much of today's recorded music. And you will join in welcoming such Meissner advantages as an Automatic Rec ord Changer that provides two hours or more of music without your touching a record; plus Frequency Modulation, Super Shortwave and a connoisseur's choice of distinguished cabinets.
