Do you remember who designed those Advent loudspeakers?

Yup, it was Henry Kloss... the original "K" in KLH, who started the Advent company to sell enough speakers to fund his most passionate invention... that's right, a 6 1/2 ft. screen front-projector... the first ever consumer "bigscreen" TV, marking the "advent" of the home theater industry.

I was an Advent salesman in those days... and the only furniture in my living room, was this HUGE TV plus a giant beanbag chair.

Now THOSE were the days.
