What to look for when buying Stereo power amplifiers - 1959 Hi-Fi Review

Hi-Fi review examines 5 really nice amplifiers of the day. I have the Knight so their comments about it are really interesting to me. I'm rebuilding it this year to use on the bass section of my next horn system. It should be fine for that duty. If I could pick one out of this list it would be the Leak. Always wanted one.

1957 Leak Ad Showing New Designs

 50 or 25 or 12 watts. I'd go for the 12 watts.
 I really like the clean layout and build. Don't think I can do that yet.

Leak Ads 1955 1951 1949

I bet the guys designing these didn't think people would be drooling over them 60 years later. It is a shame this were hidden away in cabinets. There are a few examples in the Klipsch museum which reportedly came from an early UK Klipsch dealer.
Groovy arm with Ruby stylus.

Another Visit To The Klipsch Factory And Museum

These are new pics of some items that may have been posted here before but this stuff is so cool I don't mind ;) There was a Klipsch Pilgrimage this last weekend. This is a fan trip as Klipsch opens the doors to their museum and factory which I think is very generous.

This item is a pic of a pic. This was a custom made Khorn which was last seen in New Mexico and if I remember correctly the subject of post #1 for this site.

A 1939 Lowther. This is a massive beast.

Another massive Lowther but without the waterproof casing..

This one makes me drool every time I see it an early Leak amplifier.

A Newcomb 25 preamplifier. The settings are very interesting and obviously tweaked for lp playback.

An early example of cassette tape. I'm glad they got a little smaller.

A rare McIntosh SS amp the 100. A friend is running two of these currently.

One of my all time favorites a Voigt tractrix horn with Voigt cornerhorns in the background.

Another one of my favorites a very early non labeled or numbered RCA cornerhorn which has fieldcoils inside.

Jim Hunter the curator of the Klipsch museum opened up this short horn to show us how far these can be taken. Zowee.

Then things started to get strange around the museum........

Leak ad 1959

Here is some more great Brittish Hi-Fi. This ad has the Point One preamp and Stereo 20 and TL-12 amplifiers. The Leak Stereo 20 is on my list of amps I want to own.
