.. a- adw Z446eielu 'Vb/ eoz -As Guy Lombardo Found! "Can we make it short?" asked Guy Lombardo. "I've wanted so much to hear the Meissner . . . but I must leave for rehearsal in five minutes. .. " Guy, himself, touched the button starting the automatic record changer and watched the metallic arm as it quickly, silently selected a record and gently placed it on the turntable. He saw how the Meissner could play both sides of a record in sequence or repeat any record. "It's amazing," Guy said, "but now let me hear this Meissner play.." All else was forgotten, now, as the music took command ... with each note as clear as if the musicians had been in that very room. There were no "missing elements" here to annoy the experienced listener nothing blurred or adulterated. "You know," said Guy, "it's hard to believe that good reproduction alone could make such a difference. I've heard those records before - but never have they sounded like this ... " Later, much later, Guy Lombardo looked at his watch. "Well, I guess the band got along without me," he grinned. "But they'll forgive me when I tell them about the Meissner. What a set it is!" Guy Lombardo had been listening to the only Meiss ner radio-phonograph in existence--perfected just before the war-now on loan "for the duration" to the high school in Meissner's home community. Your postwar Meissner, in a distinguished cabinet, will combine unexcelled reproduction and completely automatic operation with Frequency Modulation, Super Shortwave, and other advancements.
