  • Blast From The Past

    Note: As our coverage of the 2016 New Audio Show has just been posted, I thought it would be interesting to post our report from the 1965 show, in particular to see which brands are still around 50 years later.¬óJohn Atkinson

    Indeed I was an Acoustic Research Fanboy !!--devouring(?) anything they spat out! Hooked by the Ads --Von Karajan owned them!

    AR TT, Amp,AR4X, 2AX- the ones with the 2 Midrange in a V formation semi facing one another, AR3A with the troublesome prone to break Mid Dome, squeaky attenuators ,being the dumb Tiger for punishment fell for the LSTs great while they lasted intact-sadly not that long!--- they also had the flawed Mid Domes-- just too many of them!

    But hey " I was so much older then I'm wiser than that now"-- no that doesn't seem right?

    Good Listening
