"How much richer SINGERS who have never been particularly popular in the household become favorites overnight - when PHILCO enters the home. With PHILCO the family hears the singer's voice just as though the artist were present in person. PHILCO reproduces the high est notes of a soprano with a richness that does full justice to the original. And PHILCO does equally well on the other side of the scale-bringing the deepest notes of a basso with never a trace of "booming". PHILCO is the only radio scientifically designed as a musical instrument. PHILCO will not only bring every note of every singer on the air into your home-but PHILCO will also become a whole symphony orchestra from the topmost notes of a high pitched piccolo down to the lowest growl of the tuba. Leading dealers everywhere are happy to show and demonstrate PHILCO. See it. Hear it. Buy it. Enjoy it.
