1952 Altec 620A and 820A Corner Speaker

A beautiful corner cabinet from Altec. I need more corners.... And I can't tell the difference between 620a and 820a.

  1. Hi,

    That is an Altec Lansing 820A, not 620A.

    Best regards,
    Anders

  3. I think the 620A had one 604 driver.

  4. That's a very early 820 with cool small multicell
    , by around 57', they switched to the 811b sectoral. Beautiful,
    Unfortunately, the 820/821 is NOT a great sounding speaker.
    The 500 cycle systems A-7/ magnificent,
    Altec Laguna and best of all, the big HeathKit
    Legato are all much better. Bigger horn and
    Lower xover make the difference.

    1. I agree bigger horn lower xover 8-)

      The fine print on the ad does say 620 but what I posted must be 820.

      Thanks for the info.
