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

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

ESLs were used in the '60s but were - from what I remember - not that widespread due to cost (and durability issues).

The US market was dominated by AR, and later, KLH and Advent sealed dynamic speakers, along with Klipsch, Altec Lansing and JBL horns. The 3 former being known as representing the "East Coast" sound and the latter the "West Coast" sound. The former companies probably sold a lot more units as they were smaller in size and, I think, significantly less expensive.
