I used to WATCH the music on the ‘scope… (Jun, 1958)
I used to WATCH the music on the ‘scope…
…but a NORELCO speaker made me LISTEN!
Every time I bought a record. I used to set up the calibrated microphone. connect the oscilloscope. start the music with hated breath, and keep my eyes glued to the screen. If anything on the ‘scope pattern looked suspicious (something always did), I would start checking tubes, voltages and crossover frequencies, and examine the record under a microscope.
Then, at the house of a musician friend. I heard a NORELCO loudspeaker. I was suddenly carried away by the sheer joy of listening! What lovely sound! Clean, tight bass; creamy smooth highs; crisply defined middles it was music!
I rushed out to the nearest hi-fi dealer, bought my own NORELCO speaker, took it right home . . . and I am a different person today Man. just listen to that music!
