Arthur Fiedler Hears a Familiar Voice in The Meissner's Magic Tone Yes, this was a sound the noted conductor of the Boston "Pops" Orchestra knew well... he had heard it many times as he ascended the podium for his famous Charles Rives Esplanade Concerts. It was the murmur of thousands of voices ... the conversation of music lovers from all walks of life rising on the wind ... then suddenly hushed by the raising of the baton... A composer had caught this sound ... woven it into a descriptive passage of the powerful American symphony Arthur Fiedler heard now, cascading from the luxurious cabinet before him ... recorded music that overpowered him with its sheer beauty of natural tone... for this was the famous Meissner electronic radio-phonograph. When the last record of the symphony was ended, Arthur Fiedler spoke: "This new Meissner is an inspi ration! I have heard these records often, but never before has an instrument been able to reproduce the full, true tone that brings such a musical picture to life for the listener!" Soon you, too, will find new life ... new inspiration ... in your favorite music, for the great new Meissner, housed in luxurious cabinets created by the nation's most skilled craftsmen, will soon be ready for you. Its introduction will be a musical event, for this complete new world of sound will include the finest AM, FM and Super Short Wave reception, in addition to reproduction of recorded music with the clarity and fidelity of tone that has astounded many of the world's greatest musicians.
