Just wandering through Youtube i found this, have to say, the quality is amazing. How clear and precise is this? Wow. Clap

(Yes, i know there is some hi-end gear driving it, but credit where it's due.)


Be seeing you.

I think the original Living Voice Air Partner was a single w bin with a pair of scoops/HF horns. Very expensive 30 odd years ago, and extremely efficient so was popular with valve amp enthusiasts.
  I can't work out how to post pictures, but there are a few decent images of the birds eye maple ones about.

Must disagree on you with this one. I find that the horn loaded systems used as HiFi tend to have a certain 'PA' sound. The over emphasised bass and slightly honky 'horn' sound ruin it for me - this was never obvious on systems like the Altec A7 back in the old days. The system on Bennett Prescott's video sounds really good but I always refer back to my brother's EV S200 that I used to use when I had issues with my old A&Rs (child number 2 used them as a climbing frame - needing very expensive imports from the US and elsewhere which took for ages) as a nice HiFi sounding system. I have read on other forums that the choice of drivers would not be to everyone's taste but sounds pretty good to me - a bit of judicious FIR tweaking would make it even better IMHO.

For sidefills, can we have two enormous things of a type that might be venerated as Gods by the inhabitants of Easter Island, capable of reaching volumes that would make Beelzebub soil his pants.
