  1. >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 wo
  2. New to the forum, so hello. I'm hoping for some help and advice on a pair of ARs I just acquired (thankfully cheaply). The Grill badge is AR-6, but the tweeters had been replaced with something from Radio Shack and some changes made to the crossovers! I have attached pictures in the hope that someone can identify which year/country of origin, if indeed they are AR-6s, and most importantly - where I might search for/find the correct tweeters (and crossover, if necessary)....
  3. For many years—perhaps from the very beginning—AR had a difficult time selling their products in typical audio salon showrooms. In fact, from 1954 until around 1974, AR made no attempt to cultivate good dealer relationships. Nevertheless, and despite the lack of dealer success, AR outsold nearly every other speaker manufacturer worldwide for many years without a strong, formal dealer network. How was this possible?

I'm sure these will keep me busy for quite some time. The organic pilsner is to show scale and keep me happy Quick analysis revealed serials in the 27,000 and 37,000 range. The labels on these come off easily unlike the US versions. Three front wired tweeters and one rear wired. The rear wired tweeter has a break in the lead at the cone junction. I can probably fix that one since I did one the other day on
  5. Hi everyone, I am new to the forum. I’ve been reading those pages previously a lot, but now, since I obtained a lovely sounding AR-6’s, I will need some help from you guys. So, I would like to restore my AR-6's and make them not only perfectly functional, but also would like to restore the cabinets and grilles. The cabinets will be sanded, repainted and oiled, maybe even lacquered but for that to be nicely done I will have to remove the LF and HF drivers. - Is it a good idea to have the cabinets veneered with natural veneer or it would be best to leave them as they are? - While restoring the
