This thread is getting old...apology if these were mentioned already: German Braun L1030 floorstander, IIRC 2x 200mm, 3" & 1" domes...I would have considered anything to get a pair of these back in the days of Pacific Stereo stores where they were heard in the high end room...I'd still love a pair. I think the ADS (Analog Digital System) version were pretty much the same speaker. Another is the Braun mini-monitor which (again IIRC) stuffed a 130mm & dome mid/dome tweeter into a tightly packed small speaker. Sooo smooth & detailed, hmmmm...In quality of appearance, finish & aspiration ADS & Braun were similar to Wilson Audio of today's brands.
I had these 35+ year old Dynaco A25XL's refurbished with ne cabinets and got rid of all the bad things about the original design. No grill, no edge in the front, made them left and right hand, and beautiful wood all around.Wayner
I'll bet the neighbors really like it.
Didn't you miss the dynamics when they were gone?
Being older than rocks, I've owned or thoroughly auditioned a LOT of these (mostly common) better vintage speakers in their time ('60s-'70s):Honestly, none were as enjoyable or with me for nearly as long as the JBL L100s. They were completely underrated at the time, but continue to flourish on the nostalgia and vintage sales sites. And for good reason. In spite of the technical disadvantage they might have against current, super integrated loudspeakers with space age driver materials, I think would still prefer to spend an afternoon with any good rock and roll OR classical music with the L100s over my other, new, well regarded speakers. Smooth, top end to bottom, they are that good. They're personalizable with the mid/tweet attenuators. Bass forever (very nice 12" woof). Not the most efficient speakers, and not as detailed or sophisticated as the new batch of SOTA speakers...but give them some power....yeah! I believe I lost a little hearing because of those speakers. Give me the old '60s west coast sound in speakers!
I was just going to say, I miss my Allisons. Had the Fours and the CD8's. Don't know why the principles weren't more widely adopted; they sounded the same everywhere in the room. I was even able to open a door in front of my Fours (they were close to a corner) without completely losing the stereo image.Also had, and loved, Dyna A25's, along with 300,000 other audiophools. They were my first 'real' speakers.
