There is a pair if La Scalas on ebay (100 miles north of me, starting at $1500, "buy now" at $2250) signed by Orndorf Hertz. The seller says that is PWK. I thought Mr. Paul used his own name on speakers.

Ross, John, et.al.,

The O. Gadfly Hertz was PWK's pen name whenever he wrote a tongue-in-cheek technical paper in response to some new, gee whiz breakthrough in the audio reproduction arena . . . there is at least one, perhaps two such papers that were published with the Klipsch Audio Papers and Dope from Hope series. What I now speculate is that the "O." stood for Orndorf.

Additional point of trivia,

Gadfly:

"A nickname for a "professional" shareholder that owns stock in various companies, attends annual meetings and asks senior management hard and often embarrassing questions."

From Mellon Investor Services glossary of terms . . .
