Lansing 1937

I must say that I agree with Lansing Iconic advertising. Theater quality in the home should have been the standard for then and now. This early ad from 1937 shows an early basic icon speakers. Les Paul and Lee Scratch Perry used Iconic speakers in their studios.



Here it is starting to evolve. $400 for a speaker in 1937 was a large sum of money. This was for studios or very serious early audiophiles.


A survivor.

I'm still studying the early history of Lansing, RCA, and Western Electric. Their contributions to speaker design is still being implemented today. Hopefully I'll have a more informative post later.
