Thanks for the photos, Limp. The Fasett looks to be a very unusual design and difficult to manufacture. From the front it looks like a bass-reflex system, but in the rear photo it appears that the vent tube is a pathway from the exterior back to front.

Okay, I didn't recognize the (unusual) grill. So it's a conventional two-way bass-reflex in an enclosure of unusual shape and a different type of grill. -An art object. I like the appearance, but I suppose the sound quality isn't anything special. However, manufactured by Tandberg is supposedly top of the line, no? This is the same Tandberg that years ago manufactured the best reel to reel tape recorders?

Yup, though I believe TV and radio is what most people remember them for, at least over here.

I've never listened to a pair, but they're supposed to sound decent enough for their size and age.

Ported. Molded plastic shell and an aluminum back plate. Orange, black or white. It was probably very easy to manufacture.

No where top of the line. Quite inexpensive. Sound was not special, but quite forgiving. Still are. Significant in they were small and different when everybody expected monkey coffins made of half inch particle board. They were made to work in real peoples houses. This is what we call industrial design. Form AND function in an object that works and is pleasing. They fit into the then clean design of the early 70's. Glass and chrome. Very few products succeed in this today. Speakers are just ugly dull boxes made of MDF. In many ways the Tandburgs are still ahead of todays' products. Some may remember the trend in those days was to have small speakers sitting on the floor tilted up.

Would you call the super zero a milestone, or just one of the best executed of a trend? It did nothing new, just was well done. One's were also quite good. Was NTH the brand that made the piano black finish the fad, or did they just jump on it?
