I had to do some real digging to find out that "Meglio" refers to an instrument builder named Carlo De Meglio. This one was built in 1826. I don't know Albrecht but it is a pleasant sounding instrument.

The Albrecht is available on Spotify, so will take a listen - thanks for the info on the piano; back when I was 'in the discussion' in this thread, I found the 4-disc Bart van Oort box inserted above (older recordings using three period pianos from Chopin's era, i.e. 1823 Broadwood, 1842 Pleyel and an 1837 Erard) and enjoyed on Spotify, then purchased - reviews attached (2 excellent and MusicWeb's comments not as complimentary).  At the time, I was also interested in Elizabeth Joy Roe but price was steep for one disc - will put a playlist together of her w/ Albrecht.  Dave :)
