Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

negative - looks to me like an homage to (ripoff of) an Allison

The proprietary Allison drivers were a big part of the design.

That thing looks to me like an out of focus cross between an Allison and the orignal DCM timewindow (but with cheaper drivers).

A "real" Allison One (my pair came from my favorite audio emporium, no less):


... and a 'real' Allison One midrange (as damaged by Zappa the cat)...


A butt-ugly DCM timewindow (I paid actual $ for this pair; fortunately not too much - and they do sound great):


I am, truth be told, getting a "Synergistics" vibe. Synergistics was a value-leader (high margin!) semi-off-brand speaker sold, e.g., by Stereo Discounters in the mid-Atlantic. Not quite junk, but not really "high end", either.

That said, I've never seen a Synergistics speaker quite like the one in the photo at the top of this thread...

Here, FWIW, are a couple of catalog scans I have handy of a couple of 'real' Synergistics speakers...



These are some of the 'better' models...
all the best,
