An invention which stopped himself short on Edison's first phonographs, was the cornerstone of a new industry. The wax plate is coated with a layer of silver. What was impossible for the phonograph, Edison, that was made possible by the phonograph patent: the mass of records. The necessary die is manufactured on galvanoplastischem way. Wax plate and die are separated. And now begins the thrusted. Every minute a finished record leaves the hydraulic press. Shellac, essential for good reproduction, must be imported from abroad. Germany produced annually over 6 million records.
50 years of records - a long way - from the Zinc plate of the inventor to the first Caruso plate shortly after the turn of the century and from this until today-perfect playback of sound and voice, sang and sound.
