Stepwise improved between 1931 and 1934, AEG presen-ted 1935 the model K2, named "Magnetophon" together with the acetyl cellulose tape type "C" of BASF. 1940, AC-biasing in model K4 improved the signal to noise ratio up to 60 dB, surpassing all known recording systems at that time. The steps of development until the 1950th will be presented in detail.
