  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. Hello everyone, so i’m Quite lucky and am one of those rare people that own a pair of LST’s. Thing is I’ve never used them since I got them, kept them in a spare room and only recently got them out. I can see the surrounds have degraded on the drivers and I’m guessing that there probably gonna be some work either related to the slow blow fuse and/or the cross overs. I do t know if they’ve been re-capped or not. I’m a studio producer/engineer, I know very little about the tech behind speakers. I’m so know that for me having a pair of LST’s is a luxury that I don’t really need f
  3. I've just uploaded some AR speaker reviews from High Fidelity magazine to my server. You can access them here: https://archive.mgm51.com/library/AcousticResearch/
  4. 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? AR products traditionally had the highest ratings and best reviews, but a prospective speaker buyer would never know it to visit the typical, small hi-fi showroom where on
  5. Always nice to see these in original condition and well preserved: eBay item number: 381681007398
  6. They appear to be unmolested, sequential numbers and all original from a charity auction: 111995837516 BIN for $2,499 plus $249 shipping. I think I would drive those though. Love to do those ... Roger
  7. I saw a pair of LST's in original boxes on the auction site yesterday complete with refoamed woofers and a demo video. They disappeared very quickly -- must have got an offer he couldn't refuse. Anyway, since there seems to be so much, or considerable interest in these rare birds I am wondering if doing a reproduction is feasible. It looks like someone may have made a "one-off" cabinet in the past unless AR offered "unfinished pine" (added: but those don't look like AR woofers). The only possible drawback I can see other than finding suitable drivers would be hand-winding the auto-transformer
  8. I know I saw the LST xover diagram recently but can't seem to find it; then I remembered I saved a copy of RoyC low-res version. I would like to experiment with the capacitory (sic) protection circuit. See bottom left of diagram. I'm I correct in assuming these are npe caps? Roger
