Comments
M&A incorrectly dated 1940.04.29.

Guild fairly decent sound.

All the rest have poor sound.

M&A most natural sound but still thin with lots of acetate crackle.

ATRA low surface noise but poorer fidelity.

ATS higher surface noise than ATRA and slightly better highs.

HR heavily filtered.
