1958 Bozak

 I really dig the late 50's audio propaganda. This one from Bozak is superb.  I ran across a large pair of Bozaks a few years ago but when I went back for them they were gone. The time to buy something is the first time you see it... Don't wait.

1950's HiFi Shop

I can make out some Quad and Leak gear so this may be a UK HiFi shop. Wish there were still HiFi shops like this one.

Acrosound Presents The Perfect Stero Combination

The Perfect Stero Combination? Hmm wonder what a stero combination is and why I don't have one.

Grebe Radio 1925 - Vintage Steampunk

If there was an award for vintage Steampunk design I'd have to pick the Grebe radio. The controls on this radio are my favorite of any piece of audio equipment. They look hot from any angle. If you can find them with an aged patina they look even better. In these pics they have been bling'd.
If I could find a way to get these to control a Slagle 28 step autoformer volume control that would be too cool. I would have to find a roached Grebe CR-18(not pictured) to fashion the most Steampunk Slagle AVC ever made. I've been looking for a good design to put Slagle's 28 step AVC into but doubt it will turn out this cool.
Hard to believe this design is from the past instead of the future. Superb.
Here are some pics of the CR-18 with nice patina.

Bozak for the discriminating 1970's

These speakers need to be placed on some fly shag carpeting. I'm thinking orange or black. Definitely need some quality tunes for a swingers pad. I wasn't aware Bozak was still going into the 70's but these look true to their history. 
The concert grand is a nice sized speaker almost fridge sized.

JansZen launched an impressive ad campaign teaching the value of electrostatic tweeters and benefits of adding extended high frequency to audio systems. Check out these adverts.

60th Anniversary Klipschorn

The anniversary Klipschorns are always really nice. The 50th anniversary was superb. These were limited edition. In case you didn't know the Klipschorn is the only speaker in constant production for over 60 years.
The enclosed backs should have been a permanent fixture to the Klipschorn when they relaunched the heritage line in 2006.  Many Klipsch heads have done this mod to their own Khorns.
 The black piano gloss top hat is beautiful and goes very well with the lacewood veneer. When I redo a pair of Klipschorns this year I'm thinking all piano black gloss. I'll likely change my mind 60 times by then.
