JeffS Posted September 24, 2015 Report Share Posted September 24, 2015 My son and I traveled to Kutztown, PA last week for the fall show. Late Thursday afternoon a seller from New Jersey arrived hauling a large flatbed trailer full of various pieces of vintage equipment including an AR-1W. We were able to acquire it and found out from the seller that he purchased it from the home of Ben Tongue (who at one time was president of Blonder-Tongue Laboratories and developer of the Audio Baton nine band mono vacuum tube equalizer) who passed away in early July.Peering through the grill cloth when I arrived back home, I was expecting to see a pleated surround but surprised to see an orange cloth roll with dome dustcap. I’ve followed AR-1 sales on eBay for a few years and have not seen an earlier cloth roll unit.Of course I had to hook it up. It plays fine.
