Default Re: Do you own (and use) any Vintage speakers

I have a pair of speakers I purchased from Burstein Appleby in the late 60's which still work well. Don't use them much anymore as have a Bose system. tedsterling@hotmail.com

Wink Re: Do you own (and use) any Vintage speakers

Wow!!! All of you are comming up with the names and models of some beautiful vintage speakers. What memories!!!!! My main system, which is a Quad system, (remember Quad!! SQ, QS, CD-4?? I know that you do) uses my ESS origional AMT's in the rear and a pair of ESS AMT monitors that are bi-amped in the front. ESS is still my all time favorite speaker. Used with a good sub-woofer, I don't have much dust on the rafters for I listen to a lot of Theater and Classical organ, as well as good old Rock and Roll. I also have another system that I can switch my AR 3A's and AR 2's in for listening. All of my systems are powered by vintage tube equipment.

Living in New Hampshire, vintage tube equipment does two things; Number 1, provide "fantastic sound" and number 2, a bunch of KT-88's glowing greatly reduces the heating bill!!!

Would some ADS L1590 speakers count as vintage? Please give me your opinion.

Probably built in the 80s, I would say yes.

Telarc used the ADS L1590 for their reference monitors before they went to B&W. Was pretty up there for its time. Still sound good. Mids and domes were rather delicate and they did not take well to any clipping. Each ones weighs about 100 lbs.

New Acquisition of Ancient gear:

A pair of Acoustat 2+2's, with no buzz or rattles.

As soon as I can, I am going to pull the socks off, and give the panels a good vacuuming, rip out the crappy Monster Cable, and replace all of the capacitors in the HV section of the interface.
