Altec 605B Speakers. About £2500 from Springair Germany.

…but…this is the interesting speakers thread Dave, not the beige speakers thread :smirk:


#164

But how do they sound?


#165

Look like old British Rail announcement speakers.


#166

I quite like them. Keep expecting the lower port to start flashing and speaking like a 50s sci-fi b-film


#167

15" Dupex Co-Axial. Some announcer.


#168

I’d like to see how they’re made and then DIY a pair.
I bet the sound decent.


#169

They’re basically American versions of Tannoy.

Ugly as fuck.


#171

Taste is a strange thing. I like the look of them.


#172

Considering some have amplifiers about that size, it could be an opportunity to reduce the overall hifi size…


#173

:+1:


#174

Volti Rival Speakers.


#176

Is that his version of a Cornscala?


#177

I don’t know. But they are pretty cheap in basic form. (No veneer)


#178

Yeah, they are basically a 3-way Cornscala (a mash-up of a Klipsch Cornwall and La Scala dreamt up by Bob Crites). I think all of his speakers are basically Klipsch copies with nice build and finishing.


#179

That is one ugly fuck speaker.

When Guy, Pete and myself were listening to the Vittora’s at the RMAF About 4 years ago he offered a pair for $12000.
