Yes, manufacturers of modern horn speaker systems exist (for a mix of vintage and modern with exquisite craftsmanship Volti comes to mind) but please DO be prepared for a sticker shock ;) If you don't mind and are capable of some DIY Wayne Pelham of Pi speakers or Bob Crites who does Klipsh are a good guys and very reasonable. Welcome to horn speakers brotherhood! My decisive moment was acquiring a single diy EV Patrician IV from 50's and since then I'm cursed , ha ha. Good luck to you.

Thanks , but I'm not able to do DIY . I will need turnkey only .
Saw the Crites CS1.5...any thoughts on those ?
Any others ?
The DIYSoundgroup horn systems are pretty much turnkey kits. If you can't DIY you can probably get someone to put them together for you for modest price.
I use a two-way horn/direct radiator system in a small room. It comprises an Altec 414A, Altec 802D, and Altec 32A horn. The 414 and the horn were intended to be used in smaller spaces such as studios and domestic environments. The 802D gives better HF's than the usual 806 driver when used with a properly implemented crossover. This is not something you'll find off the shelf unless you are willing to pony up for a Shindo Petite LaTour.
