Space Age Bachlor Pad Music Les Baxter Skins!

I've been familiar with Space Age Bachlor Pad music since the 90's but didn't really listen to much of it until recently. There is alot of it around Arkansas and the south. I buy it because the album covers are cool and it is cheap. Then finding out some of the music is cool was a bonus.

Les Baxter is hit and miss but I think this is his best release. If you like 50's latin tropical percussion this is for you. It is lots of fun.

RCA High Fidelity Ads Of The 50's Hi Fi Plus

RCA introduces something new Stereo.


RCA introduces tape.

RCA how to listen. A new dimension in sound. This is great with a nod to the DIY crowd. All those pipes remind me of Bob Dobbs and the Church of the SubGenius.

Frazier Loudspeakers Dallas, TX

Frazier loudspeakers have a small cult following. I've seen a few in person. They are very well made but I can not attest to their sound. Here are some pics of pro and home Frazier speakers.

EV SP13.5TRBXWK Rearaxial Softspeaker

Ok this cracks me up. Monty Python meets Electro Voice engineers.

Do not operate this speaker within 200 feet of Ardvarks and 3 toed sloths as this will cause untold agony and immediate disintegration.




Apparently there are a couple versions of this document.

Karson Speaker Enclosures

I've seen Karlson speakers a few times but have yet to hear a pair. They certainly look cool. These ads I found posted on various sites and www.hifilit.com which is a great resourse. The Karson boasts high effeciency and low distortion which is a great thing.







This Karlson is in the Klipsch Audio History Museum which is a must see for any audio technology fan.

Live In The Horn

This is amazing. I always say I like big horns.


A little perspective.

They don't look this large in the room. Amazing.
