Speakers - Acoustic Research AR-3a
No, these aren't mine. I did have them for a few days though and listened to them . . .a little. As you can see from the bottom photo, the woofer needs help. There's an excellent restoration guide for FREE for AR-3A speakers HERE.
I played these at very low volume, and considering the driver condition, there's no need for an audio assessment here. These are very collectible though, and there's even a pair in the Smithsonian American History Museum - according to Wikipedia, anyway.
I was glad to get an up-close look at these iconic loudspeakers, and perhaps one day I'll get a pair of my own to enjoy.
Ever listened to AR-3A's? Tell us what you think of them.
