Ho-Hum, Another Major Breakthrough
Monday, October 26, 2009 11:31 AM
From the classic 1970s brochure...still relevant after 30+ years? You decide.
Oh No! Not again! Yes, it seems that every year someone "re-invents" one of the discarded speakers designs of the past. Or they purort it to modify the laws of physics by miniaturizing a 32-foot wavelength. They may even write a "technical" article on their revolutionary discovery and succeed in getting it published.
We customarily make an optimistic estimate that these speakers will survive five years. Some make it. Some even get re-invented all over again after a subsequent five years. In the meantime they sell. Because they sound different. Different from all other speakers. Different from the live performance.
We'd sort of miss them if they failed to show up. After all, what would spring be without a new major breakthrough? And would it really be fall without the letter edged in black? Pity!
So -- aren't you glad you own KLIPSCHORNS?
