The sound wins plaudits too. The piano is quite forward, recorded closely as is the orchestra, but there is never any harshness or transient distortion problems. A very sensible balance between piano and orchestra is maintained and the acoustic perspective is such that it lends liveness without destroying detail or brilliance in the piano tone. I hope this was recorded stereophonically as it is so well done in mono that it should be a real winner in its stereo format. SHAKESPEARE AGES OF MAN Sir John Gielgud. Columbia Mono OL5390. Price $3.98. It is very rarely that I ever review so- called "spoken words" discs, but this one is so outstanding it deserves your attention. Sir John Gielgud is, of course, one of the most distinguished Shakespeareans of our time and has that compelling, rich resonance of voice, flawless diction, and commanding stage presence which are the attributes of a great thespian. This album derives from his "one -man show" which has lately been touring this country and is, in essence, scenes from various plays and sonnets of Shakespeare divided into sections depicting Youth, Manhood, and Old Age. If you like Shakespeare, then with this alburn you will sit, listening spellbound to Shakespeare's incredible play on words, delivered in their every shade and nuance by Sir John. This is really the highest art of the theater and I, for one, am grateful to Sir John for a most memorable experience. WE COULD HAVE DANCED ALL NIGHT Griff Williams and his Orchestra- Mercury Stereo 51160021. Price $5.95. This album was, I am told, the largest selling stereo tape in the Mercury catalogue. As I remember the tape it was indeed first class material of the "society band" type and recorded with extraordinary presence. Here in the stereo disc version, it is perhaps one of the loudest discs over -all I have heard, but I feel there is a penalty for this, because a little shrillness crops up now and then that definitely wasn't on the tape. The sound, in general, is very crisp and bright but I don't think it can meet the measure of the tape. -j0= markets in swimm mg pools, amusement parks, clubs, schools, etc. COMPONENT SERIES AUDIO Fidelity lui. just announced its "First Component Series" of stereo records. The first group consists of sir different selections: "Marches from Operas "; Tchaikovsky "Symphony #6"; "Russian Composer Masterpieces "; Ravel "Bolero"; Bizet "Carmen Suite "; "Strauss Waltzes "; and a stereo test record. Fr a technical point of view these recordings are equal to the best that we have heard to date. All masters were made on a Scully record lathe mounting a Westrex cutter and, according to the firm's literature. the frequency response is from 16 to 25.000 cps. We doubt that this extreme frequency range, if it is actually' on the final pressings, will hold up too bag in playing. But even if the records do cover a range of 30 to 15,000 NEW STEREO CONCERTAPES, Inc., P. O. Box 88, Wilmette, Ill. has just released copies of its "Concert-Disc Stereo Demo" record which incorporates an exclusive "bouncing ball" balance control signal in addit' to a lush sampling of excerpts fr the recording firm's stereo library. Catalogued as the CSD -2 and priced at $6.95, the new disc carries complete STEREO RECORDS fps the. can be classed among the tops in the record field. We were particularly pleased with the tremendous dynamic range that was attained and the lack of static and surface noise which is so annoying on many of the records available today. All six of these discs are literally noise -free. A word of appreciation to the cons - pan. regarding the policy that they have established. All of the promotion literature specifically states dust these records are to be used only with the best coast nt hi-fi systems available. This is admirable in the sense that they are not after the mass market but are making an attempt to produce lhing but the finest for 11 who are willing to spend a little extra ($6.95) for a stereophonic record. -Ed' DEMO DISC instruc s for using the balancing band (the first on the record) to ready the stereo system to receive the rest of the material on the disc.

Compatible Stereo Broadcasts New Bell Labs system uses a time -delay effect for stereo. MUCH present stereo broadcasting is not compatible in that the listener to one channel does not receive the entire program information. Now this single- channel problem may be eliminated without affecting the stereo listener, through the use of a new "compatibility" circuit which has been developed by F. K. Becker of Bell Telephone Laboratories. The circuit depends for success on a psycho- acoustic phenomenon known as the "precedence effect." This effect operates in such a manner that when a single sound is reproduced through two separate loudspeakers, but is delayed several milliseconds in one, the listener will hear the sound as if it came only from the speaker from which he heard it first. He will judge the second loudspeaker to be silent. In the new development, circuits are cross -coupled (see diagram below) through two 10- millisecond delay lines, each with its own amplifier. Signals from the left mike are sent directly to the left speaker, while the same signal is delayed 10 msec. before reaching the right -hand speaker. The stereo listener will hear the sound as if it came only from the left speaker because of the precedence effect. Also, sound from the right mike goes direct to the right speaker but is delayed before reaching the left speaker, and is therefore unheard. The stereo listener thus localizes the sound in such a way that a full stereo effect is produced. However, monophonic reception is completely compatible with this, since a listener to each single channel hears the total sound from both mikes in a balanced reproduction. The slight delay produces no echo and does not affect reception at all, according to subjective tests. 30L Basic setup employed in compatible system. The Spotlight of Leadership is on..."
