Wharfedale and JBL did a good revivial with linton and L100 respectively.

will we see a similiar for AR?

 

Nope. Wharfdale speakers are still manufactured by the original company in Britain, and JBL is now a subsidiary of Samsung. AR as we know it is long gone.

The closest might be the KLH revival at klhaudio .com .  They look interesting but I have to admit I haven't researched them much since I'm not currently shopping for speakers.

IIRC Audiovox (Voxx) owns the rights to the name. I don't believe they are doing much with it so you might be able to wrestle it from them on the cheap and restart the company. I don't believe they are into quality audio gear.

DavidR is right.  There is little chance of Audiovox ever truly resurrecting the AR brand.   They now own Klipsch and I can't see them ever investing in a second full line of speakers.

I love to see AR  try something like its limited Model 3 speaker. I have never heard the sound of it. However, the crossovers contain 12 awg air cored inductors and  arrays of polypropylene capacitors are  truly a feast to my eyes.
