Maybe i was more sensitive when i was young but the look of Hifi had a real peak in the 70th.
There are numerous other examples.

I mean, what has happened to the aesthetics of High End audio ?
For my eyes modern stuff looks more clumsy like this :

That is the typical " i saw that as a student and now i can afford it " effect.
Maybe everybody has a child inside somewhere.
I had a HQD system. Double Quad 57, kelly ribbon without horn, Hartley bass.
That was an active system with Levinson crossover.
I think i crossed the bass active and the tweeters passive.
That is over 30years ago. Filtering the Quads in the bass makes them play louder.
I could not afford Levinson amps so i used Treshold. Had a Oracle turntable. That system looked the business.
I guess you should go back and get it .....

Frank Sinatra not dead and a prisoner in the room. The source Denon top CD player and Garrard 301 with Schroeder arm. How 20 watts could do that I will never know.
Because bass "detail" is not about bass! It's because all the harmonics higher up are being rendered correctly, which has nothing to do with the panel flapping away in huge excursions, this is midrange information ...

Acoustic piano bass usually sounds pretty dull and lacking in audio systems, easy to hear even in YouTube clips of such - and it's because the harmonics structure is all messed up!

Good to hear that you managed to hear a system working properly, at that NASA guy's place ... !
