    Review of vintage stereo components, mostly from the early 1960's to 1970s

    "A review of vintage stereo components, mostly made in America from the early 1960's to the 1970's. Many quality component systems were made in American during that era, and many of them still offer outstanding listening quality and are of very high value even today. Altec Lansing & J B Lansing made some very impressive sound systems from the 1940's up for industry, and the home."

    One of our own has cornered the market on most of the extant Harlans out there... don't know why anyone would need a room full of Harlans, but I suppose if one is good then ten are ten times as good.

    In answer to your question...

    I'd happily pay list price for a pair of those cabs

    If one is restricted to putting speakers in room corners, at least they should look nice.
    I think these hold up pretty well.
    It's nograveconcern to me, but it appears a fan on AVS "borrowed" my avatar...

    I especially enjoyed, "...the Harlan's illusion of small size is due to the designer's treatment of surfaces."

    Small ain't what it used to be.

    Do I -really- need to answer that?

    The 4-D123+075 option would be pretty cool (IMO).
