----- was this the 10" RCA test record 12-5-49? This "New Ortophonic" 
Frequency Test Record was recorded in such a way that they could state: 
"adjust wide range reproducer for constant output when playing this record". 
On the front of the cover is the curve, and on the back complete 
instructions, including passive LR and RC networks. It goes all the way from 
30 Hz to 15 kHz, although while the part from 10 to 15 kHz is with a reduced 
velocity, it is still constant.

Kind regards,


George
