Mono Hi-Fi at its best

Recommended Posts

If you think that obsession with modern systems is unique, check out this installation from 1958.  I’ve returned to my roots with a single speaker mono system with no regrets at all!

Glorious Mono! I love it.  I listen to lots of mono recordings. I do feel there is a benefit to listening on a well placed set of stereo speakers though. Sit in the sweet spot and you get a good sense of depth that you don't get with one speaker.

I enjoy listening to the phantom center image also.  However, I am finding that the single speaker placed in the corner creates such wide dispersion that an illusion of width and depth is created which is even more pleasing to my ears.  By changing the listening spot I can create varying acoustic effects which, depending on the recording, can be very enjoyable as well.

I had been looking for a single Klipschorn to set up a dedicated mono system, but I do have a spare cornwall... maybe that is my que to get started. I need a turntable that can do 78rpm
