H.M.V. 'DA' Series

The 'DA' listing (at present) features most of the series from DA-103 to DA-7029. (There are gaps still to be 'filled')

The DA series is the 10inch equivalent of the DB series. The following notes on approximations of recording dates for the DA series may be helpful:

  • DA 103-458        Pre-1925 (and) Pre - Electric
  • DA 761-1000      1926-1929
  • DA 1000-1700    1929-1939
  • DA 1700-2000    1939- to the end of the 78rpm era
  • DA 4400-5450    Continental recordings, mostly pre - 1939. Some series in use until end of the 78rpm era
