>I also recall having read the same detailed information from Stereophile, and I assume its correctness against what appears to be a sort of revisionist article containing conflated timelines, unattributed premises and boot-strapped conclusions. >I've been wishing & hoping for Tom Tyson's definitive AR history for years...would a GoFundMe effort be in vain? —ar_pro Book: The History of Acoustic Research Any and all suggestions and ideas here would be greatly appreciated! Any thoughts about what you would like to see would be great as well. To do a complete history would be difficult, but a history of the "Classic Period," from 1954-1974 (or 1980 perhaps) in one part and the Teledyne/International Jensen/Recoton/Voxx period in another part or in a revised edition. The most important part of AR history is the first 25 years or so. Anyway, please reply with your thoughts and ideas, for example: The best title for such a book? The period covered with this book; part of all? The amount of detail to be included in this book? The size of this book, a small book with 150 pp or so, or comprehensive with perhaps 300 pp? The other questions you might have. There are also many people here on this website with detailed knowledge of specific aspects of AR history and technology. Therefore, give me ideas about how you would like to see such a book. —Tom Tyson 06Jun2017
Greetings Gentlemen. I am contemplating these three speakers for bookcase placement in a medium sized room: Acoustic Research 11, KLH Model 5, Allison Four. I would value your thoughts regarding how they compare with one another in terms of 1) quality of cabinet construction 2) clarity and naturalness of sound 3) warmth vs brightness of tones and 4) listener fatigue value. I like a wide variety of music: medieval, renaissance, swing, beebop, blues, Celtic, Scandinavian folk, organ, opera and orchestral, and a good helping of classic rock. Many thanks for your ideas. Best wishes.
