  • Vintage 40-50's - Zeiss, EMT, Vitavox

    Hello.

    I had been listening old blues and jazz (and symphonic music too). For stereo recordings and big band I use the Zeiss. For mono recordings - old Vitavox and Shindo 300B.

    1. System 1 (for stereo and big band)
    EMT-930 (ortofon rmg-309) or AudioNote DAC 5 Signature
    Shindo Masseto + Zeiss Dominar L + ZEISS IKOVOX D (1953)

      Welcome to Audionirvana Oleg! Glad to have you aboard!



      You certainly have assembled some unique horn based systems. Not sure any made there over here but sure David would know more! But Shinzo and EMT are certainly well known!

        This is a rare pair of ZEISS IKON SPEAKER IKOVOX D/TYP31-15/1 in near new old stock condition with amp Dominar L (http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/zeiss_d...erstaerke.html). The 18inch leather Woofers and Horns are never been opened. The flat board size is height 1720mm + 490mm Horn, width is 1740mm. The exact specification I do not have and I could not find anywhere.
        And several photos:

            I'm a fan of Zeiss Ikon cameras, but I never knew they made speakers too.

              Hi David
              First of all, I would like to tell about your beautiful collection of vintage equipment (turntables and speakers) - really great!
              I listened Bionor in Moscow - perfectly sound.
              About Zeiss ... They are very different from Vitavox. Zeiss - this scale, excellent separation of the symphony orchestra of tools, the power of 18 inches and an open acoustics.
              Vitavox - a soft enveloping sound of the voice and small ensemble - a quartet, etc. The main thing in it - a 15-inch speaker K150, an extremely rare, with an admixture of silk paper 40s.
              And - I'm from Moscow, Russia. Welcome!

              Yes, but only a few years Zeiss produced loudspeakers and amplifiers for cinemas. The scheme is very similar to Klangfilm, but with a little better quality components. As far as I know, in perfect condition in the world about 5 pairs of ZEISS IKON SPEAKER IKOVOX D/TYP31-15/1

                    I'm updating the photo of the room for the movie.
                    I watch movies often, so I searched for a long time in excellent condition JBL 4345. And I found)))

                      Hi again. I made a comparison on my system of vinyl and digital sound.
                      First, it's a vinyl record. Then - digital recording
                      Pink Floyd β€Žβ€“ Meddle (the original vinyl 1971 Harvest β€Žβ€“ SMAS-832) and FLAC 24/96

                          I found in the documents that the acoustics are made in the city of Kiel. This acoustics produced only a few years, for cinemas after the Second World War, so very little information can be found about it..
