That's where one the Victrola is pre-eminent The Victrola brings to you the pure and varied tones of every musical instrument, and the beauty and individuality of every human voice-all absolutely true to life. Such fidelity of tone was unknown before the advent of the Victrola-the first cabinet style talking-machine; and this pure and life-like tone is exclusively a Victrola feature. "Why exclusive with the Victrola?" Because of the patented Victrola features, which have been per fected after years of study and experiment: "Goose-neck" sound-box tube-the flexible metal connection between the sound box and tapering tone arm, which enables the Victor Needle to follow the record grooves with unerring accuracy. Concealed sounding-boards and amplifying compart ment of wood-provide the very limit of area of vibrating surface and sound amplifying compartment, so absolutely essential to an exact and pure tone reproduction. Modifying Doors-May be opened wide thereby giving the tone in its fullest volume; or doors may be set at any degree graduating the volume of tone to exactly suit every requirement. Closed tight the volume is reduced to the minimum and when not in use the interior is fully protected. Victor system of changeable needles:-A perfect re production is possible only with a perfect point therefore a new needle for each record is the only positive assurance of a perfect point. You also have your choice of full tone, half tone or further modifi cation with the fibre needle. It is the perfection of every part, and its per fect combination with all other parts, that gives the Victrola its superior tone-that makes the Victrola the greatest of all musical instruments. There are Victrolas in great variety from $15 to $200 and any Victor dealer will gladly demonstrate them and play any music you wish to hear. Victor Talking Machine Co., Camden, N. J., U. S. A.
