Default 755a

Hmmmmmm

Even the Great Pass looks at the price of vintage Altec 755a's turns pale and retreats to something more available and less costly.

Yes, the prices on 755A are beyond insane compared with historical norms...but still cheaper than many entirely unremarkable and boring high end speakers.

You can have fine Italian craftsmanship and exotic wood --or superior sound. Your choice!

I have Altec's in the corner, TAD, JBL, Fostex and etc on the shelf and Pass in the listening position........ just the typical self torturing audiophile. It's all good, even when it's not!

My objection is that Altec used to be the working man's choice. Western was only moderately more expensive.

Now it is like collecting fine vintage watches or even vintage sports cars.

Sadly, my budget is still decidedly deep down in the 99%!!

Just for your ears a secret. There are very good auction buys to be had on days of major sporting events......Super-bowl, indy-500!

If you had a pair of 416C woofers, what cabinet would you make for them?

A7s. Not that they'd sound that good, but if a person had the room, they sure look menacing ....
