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

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

In the mid 60s the east coast Boston sound dominated the market. In 1966 I think I recall Acoustic Research alone owned 1/3 of the market and off shoots of Acoustic Research like KLH were doing well also.

One of the next huge sellers just a few years later was the Advent speakers, also acoustic suspension. They were designed by Henry Kloss, the K of KLH and also the designer of the 1st Acoustic Research though Edgar Vilchur developed the concept.

And the best seller of all was the Dynaco A25 using what is now often called the variovent(stuffed port)design. And the other Dynaco models didn't do badly sales wise also.
