    Background info

    Here's some info about the monitor on Tom Hidley's home page:

    Record Plant today

    Seems they are no longer in use (I wonder who has them now?):

    At least they've been replaced by custom monitors designed by "our" George Augspurger.

    Eastlake custom monitors

    For reference (I've posted those links before), here are other examples of early Westies (or, actually, Easties ):

    Studio Bohus, Gothenburg 1977:

    Addendum

    The pic in my first post was probably taken in 1973 (judging from the text on the site).

    I'd say that seems about right (judging from the guy's shirt!)

    Thanks for sharing this; It makes me wish studios never left the big monitor days. Looks like some big monitors are making a comeback- the success of Dynaudio, Dunlavy, etc...oh, and Westlake.

    EDIT- Damn, Merlin. You beat me to the punchline! lol.

    EDIT (2X)- I will share another mother of Westies:
