A Little Heresy Ad

A Little Heresy is good for the SOUL. This might be one of my favorite ads from Klipsch... Good stuff.

Arthur Fiedler's Klipschorn

Arthur Fiedler was director of the Boston Pops. He was a HiFi enthusiast and custom ordered a Klipschorn in the early 50's. PWK I'm sure arranged a discount to use Arthur Fiedler in an early Klipschorn ad.

Arthur Fiedler Klipschorn is currently in the Klipsch Audio History Museum. Here are a couple pics.

This post originated at retro vintage modern hi-fi

Only Klipsch Ad

I saw this ad at the Klipsch museum. It took some tweaking to make it look ok as it was hard to photograph under glass. The associated audio equipment is very nice.

Klipsch Rebel Cabinart Ad

The PWK caricature with the whip is very cool. This is likely from the mid fifties. In the early days of Klipsch PWK did everything from engineering to pr to sales to day to day running of the company.

Just a couple early Klipsch ads

I spend allot of time posting about Klipsch because that was my intro to hifi and more importantly horns.

The days of Klipsch run by a genius eccentric southern gentleman engineer are sorely missed. It was the right time and the right product. PWK struck a good balance between fidelity and price. Audiophilia was in full stride in the 50's and Hi-Fi actually mattered to people. You couldn't have a swing'n bachelor pad without a proper hi-fi system.

Here are two ads from the early days. The mid century modern design is very sleek and clean. The first is a mono and the second ad is three way. Klipsch was an early pioneer of multi channel not just stereo. Not the first of course but he made many early stereo recordings in Arkansas. I understand Klipsch Corp has these and could be undergoing restoration. I really hope this does happen.
