Lijadu Sisters

Two of my favorites vocalists. They are from Nigeria and have worked for decades. They recently toured with David Byrne. Incredible talents. I wish Lee Scratch Perry could produce them.

Brociner Klipsch Speaker System

A pre Klipschorn advert from Brociner. I'm not sure what year that started using the phrase Klipschorn perhas late 1940's. I'll have to ask Klipsch historian Jim Hunter about this one.

Western Electric 1304 Broadcast Turntable 1947

I love these giant broadcast turntables. One day I will have one and it doesn't have to be Western Electric perhaps Fairchild or Gates or RCA.  This is a nice one.

The Klipsch museum of course is centered around the life of Paul W Klipsch and his inventions but the archives are huge and diverse. This is an amazing glimpse into the glory days of Hi-Fi. PWK coresponded with all the giants in the industry including Western Electric, Jensen, RCA, Fisher, McIntosh and many others. There are literally crates of documents awaiting discovery and your contributions help preserve and uncover these gems. 

Please consider supporting the museum by becoming a member or by donating.

United Electronics 966 966A

I assume this is the same as the 866A and 866. I'd love another pair of unshielded 866. The one I have is abit scary looking.

1947 The Klipsch Sound Reproducer Article By Paul W Klipsch

A little heavy on the Klipsch posts lately but thats ok as they are practicatlly the last man standing of companies from the dawn of Hi-Fi. That is still made in the US.  

This article is special as it is 1947 and the article is by PWK himself. Read the article it is brilliant and no Bullshit! The article appears to be before the name Klipschorn is used.
