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

Family and I started in 1968, owned AR 3 (family system), AR 2ax, AR 4, then McIntosh ML 1, followed by real high end stuff. The competition was KLH and JBL and Altec, etc.

When I moved to another town in the 70's, I bought a pair of used ESS Transtatic I, not Heil. These had Brit pancake woofs (KEF), KEF B 200 and 2 blue panels of stat's. The panels blew spontaneously with no music playing, plugged into the wall. So I had to fashion another way, replacing with KEF T 27.
