1951 High Fidelity Ads Featuring Khorns

It is interesting that the Klipschorn shown right next to the Brociner electronic crossover and preamp. In this 1951 magazine Klipsch has several ads one in this report, a Brociner, and RadioShack ad. It wasn't long after this that Klipsch quit liocensing others to build their speakers.

The High Quality Horn Loudspeaker Systems Arrived

 This book by Thomas and Bjorn is massive. Their 15 years of hard work has paid off. Their geek points just landed them in the gods and legends status. I emailed with them briefly a few years ago as the Klipsch museum had just started up. It would have been nice if our archives had been available but alas they are 12 4 foot square crates. The museum hopes to follow their example and get audio history and theory ino the hands of the people. Thank you Bjorn and Thomas for send a book for the museum it truly belongs there. I'll make sure it passes through Roy Delgado's hands.


If you are a horn junkie this book as an absolute must. This book is amazing.

Support the good work of Thomas and Bjorn.


 I hope one day to shake their hands and drink a toast to this successful project.

Restored Designer Klipschorns

 These are amazing Klipschorn refurbs. The veneer and the horns look great. I can't help but think the MF and HF need a baffle but otherwise they knocked this out of the ballpark. Great skill and craftsmanship here.

Spindr Bespoke Garrard 301

Spindr are the new kids on the block.. Block is right... Amazing Garrard 301 cut from blocks of metal. I don't even know what to say. I would usually say oh but it isn't a real Garrard 301... I do say that about mods because at some point they just aren't 301's anymore. This is on an entire different planet of quality and gutso. This is a from scratch build. Just scroll and check out this eye candy..









I'm stunned....

This was posted on tne Horn Loudspeaker FB group.Those horns are amazing. Guy Fountain was not only a public address company but a genius cabinet designer. He is one of the few I would put up there with PWK.
