That furniture looks really uncomfortable - and hard to get out of. Those chairs show up all the time at Goodwill stores. Too bad the speakers don't...
About what year was this ad?
wow, featured at the Brussels World Fair. Would that have been fun to be there or what?
Hunter tells me this is either '59 or '60
Is it possible to know what amps or preamps would have been used by Mr. Klipsch and company at the time of these showings? I doubt records were kept of this but it would be interesting to see what Mr. Klipsch considered worthy enough to hook up to these speakers.
Those were great years, when men's feet were smaller and we were tall and lean.
way cool, I have not seen this in a long time. All the guys are smoking. This drawing looks very similar to the drawing/cartoons that were in Playboy in the early 60's.
Are the corners deep enough? That you want at least 36" and the drapes seem to start sooner then that.
In the book it was noted that he sent the crew out with a Marantz IC-6V amp, 2A amp and a Fisher C Pre. It looks like a Cornwall center speaker, later yaers he promoted an equql type speaker, more like a LaScala or something. That's my goal...
I vaguely recall, from an article about the fair in an old Hi-Fidelity magazine, he had a Marantz 8b and 7. There were problems with people, particularly Russians for some reason, sneaking under the rope and turning the volume way up - especially on jazz recordings.
This looks like a scene straight out of the new AMC channel series "Mad Men," an office drama set in a NYC advertising firm in 1960. It's a great show, by some of the producers of the Sopranos.The set and costume designers really have that early '60s feel down pat. Maybe Klipsch should try for a little product placement deal.
I have a set of KHorns in the corners of a room that is 40 feet long and twenty five feet wide. Pine boards on the floor are 24 inches wide and 200 years old. Low ceilings on this old house and I'm in music heaven. Thanks for the blog
