Andy Posted October 20, 2006 Report Share Posted October 20, 2006 Thought I'd share a couple of Henry Kloss's comments about Advent from a 1996 interview. Kloss; "We started Advent in 1967 to develop projection TV, but work in projection television is far more expensive than work in audio, and money runs out after awhile. Surprisingly, the audio loudspeaker buisiness did not go to the majors, RCA, Zenith, etc., it still belonged to the small specialty companies. Fine, we'll go back and make loudspeakers, and we did, and sold more among our particular audience than we'd ever done. That was the Advent Loudspeaker. Then we did an interesting varient and made something that sounded exactly the same, 3 db less efficient. As the laws of physics tell you, in one half the volume, you can do this. You save alot of money, but performance can be exactly the same, and it was. That was the smaller Advent. It was thought to be a lesser Advent, which it never was. It should have been far more successful because it cost a whole lot less. It was a product of importance, I still listen to it."That's a fine endorsement for the small Advent from the man himself! I'm a KLH guy, but after reading that, I must find myself a pair of these little Advents !Andy- Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
