Sleeper Brands

Recommended Posts

I've recently been buying vintage loudspeakers that are great performers, but have not gotten any press and that means they sell for a song. I recently bought a pair of small Magnaox speakers ($5.00) from about 1960, 2-way, 8" woofer w/alnico magnet & a 21/2" tweeter. cabinet construction is amazingly nice, solid walnut ?!, not veneered mdf or plywood. Great aluminum trim around the gold grill cloth, very retro looking. Best of all they sound every bit as good as a smaller AR, KLH or ADS.

I had read that large Magnavox speakers built at their Fort Wayne, Indiana plant are fantantic and have a cult following. I'll say the smaller ones are also great.

Anyone else have brand worth mentioning ?
