Newcomb 1950's ad

The Newcomb amplifiers and pre-amps have been very elusive to me. I've only seen a few of the. I dig the style.

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........
