I've got a couple of speaker group tests from the mid '70's. They are in those. Give us a model number. JB

Without an exact model number I can't be 100% sure but they woiud seem to be a pair of MLS 1's. These were good units with a positive review from the Hi-Fi Choice 1978 report. The drive units were Audax. The 1" dome was being used by the BBC (and everybody else!) at that stage. The treble benefits from a 3db notch filter at 13k Hz. if you want to fiddle with them. A nine element cross over. Which means that they put some effort into its design. The capacitors could prob' be upgraded. At that price I'd buy them......even with the Aussie dollar having become a "bottom feeder" recently! Cheers.

Hi,

Audiomaster was a brand name formed by a large UK retailer.

At one point they produced the BBC LS3/5A's under license.

All the other speakers I recall used Audax drive units, the
ubiquitous 1" soft dome taking over the world at the time
and Audax's range of Bextrene bass/mid units, which to
a degree competed with KEF's bextrene offerings.

All the speakers where good value as relatively they were
not expensive, but they are not built to LS3/5A standards.

Tweeter : Audax HD12-9D25
Woofer : Audax HD13B25H (2 or 4 - different vc layers and magnets).
The crossover was probably made by Falcon, named "Tantino".

Do not pay too much for them.

/sreten.
