McIntosh 60 And C8 Ad

Early McIntosh Ad featuring the MC60 and C8. The C8 is one of the earlier mono McIntosh preamps or compensator. It works well if you have an old stack of 78's
Unit shown is C8S.

Frank The HiFi Nut

Not a Sinatra fan but the man always had a top notch Hi-Fi and superb style. This is just one incarnation of his system. I have a few more pics in my archive that I am looking for...  Three channel with Lansing, Amperex,  and Mcintosh.

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........

1950 McIntosh Ad

I've actually located a pair of these early McIntosh amps locally but the seller seems to like to torment me.

Brilliant Mcintosh Marketing Lost Instruments

Companies like Mcintosh and Klipsch went to great lengths to educate the public on the fundamentals of high fidelity music reproduction with minimized distortion. The record companies of the day also explained why their recordings were the best sometimes telling you more about the production than the artists. This is a brilliant marketing tool from McIntosh called Lost Instruments. I've actually owned MC30's and they were wonderful.
