Classic gear from yesteryear; vintage audio standing the test of time.

What type of speakers did audiophiles use in the 60s ?

...and early 70s...

I just read an interview with ATC's engineers and they said when the co. was founded ('74), they tried to blend the high dynamic-range of U.S speakers ("often horns") with the "better fidelity" of the U.K.

I know about Klipsch and Altec, but I thought most audiophile-choices in the 60s were ESLs -Quad, Janzen, KLH, Infinity. It appears Acoustat, Beveridge and Dayton-Wright came out in the 70s.
