Funny audio gear adds
 
This amusing advertisement in a 1974 issue of ETI caught my eye (for obvious reasons), so I had to scan it.
OK, itís a tad risque, but hopefully the moderators here arenít too prudish.

What ever happened to four channel.......errr sound.... anyway?? :)

Cheers,
Glen

"Up front: big booming 3 way speakers for wall shaking sound"

Nice set.

I believe you will invoke the wrath of the moderators who will probably delete this thread and send you to the sin-bin for a few days.

This forum is US based and for various reasons that I will not go into lest I, too, invoke the wrath of the moderators, the majority of people are prudes who do not take kindly to their children logging into an audio forum and finding bared female breasts displayed with wanton abandon.

If your ad depicted a violent crime it would be acceptable, apparently, because some portions of the manual are taken more seriously (literally?) than others. Go figure!

Given the majority of nudist camps being family oriented, I can't see this as being fact.

I don't think the majority of Americans are nudists though. :D
As a whole, though, I donít think that the average American is as prudish and puritanical as many in the more Ďliberalí parts of the western world perceive them to be. They just have a rather largish, far right minority with a strong political influence.

But isn't all this deviating a bit from the scintillating(?) topic of risque 70's HiFi gear adds?

I've come across a few Ampex add's and one for an upstart mob called 'Fearless Audio' (I think their add probably finished them though) in my old ETI collections which probably would be worth a scan too.......

Cheers,
Glen

Prudery has nothing to do with it as anyone who knows me will attest. But the realities of many cultures (not just the US! This is a world-wide forum- can you imagine some poor Iranian audiophile getting hauled off to jail for looking at pictures of naked women?) and our desire to keep a quasi-professional environment mean that we just can't allow certain sorts of pictures.

Nice hoots, though.

Awweee......OK.

I guess I better not post the "Fearless Audio" add with the naked dude getting amorous with his amplifier then?

Yes, but for a different reason- safety issues.:D

You have a remarkable understanding of the American public!
