You don't want a substitute arrangement that merely conceals
an amplifying tin horn behind some fancy grille work, or that
swings the horn around from one position to another while the
record is playing. With any such inadequate substitute you can't
expect a satisfactory tonal reproduction from your records.
There's no such substitute device in the Victrola. You can open the modifying
doors and see the sounding boards and amplifying compartment for yourself and
these exclusive patented Victrola features are necessary to provide the very limit of
area and character of vibrating surface so necessary to a full and pure tone reproduc

Furthermore, the modifying doors give you full control over the volume of sound,
and enable you to increase or diminish it at will simply by opening or closing the doors

Come in and find out all about the Victrola. See the features that result in such
a wonderful tone and make the Victrola supreme among musical instruments.
