Dictogrand Table Top
The Dictogrand Table Loudspeaker iHorn is made from a Dictogrand Table Loudspeaker, which was made by the Dictograph Products Corporation in New York City. This speaker made in 1925 and epitomizes subtlety. A bookshelf model, its tonal quality is unparalleled.
Dictograph Products was a new player in radio technology in 1923. However, Dictograph had a long history of acoustical products, including telephone systems and products to aid hearing for the deaf. It was an international corporation, with offices in United States, Europe, and the Orient. Its most famous product was the “Detective Dictograph Audio Amplifier.” This police eavesdropping device was used to convict Ohio state senator Rodney J. Diegle of bribery in 1911; U.S. Senator William Lorimer of Illinois for suborning perjury in 1912; and to indict Albert and Louis Bimberg of White Plains, N.Y., for trying to hire an employee to burn the American Oilcloth Co. plant in Trenton, N.J. in 1914. Dictograph Products was a big player in telephone equipment parts as well.
The Dictogrand Table Loudspeaker is near perfect. Its rich wooden tones will soothe your senses. It is a piece of Americana which reflects ingenuity, beauty and grace. Its appearance and sound are symphonic.
