Excellent pair of restored Acoustic Research 3-way four-speaker AR-93Q speakers. The AR-93 and AR-94 floorstanding speakers were introduced in late 1979, and called the "High Tech" series, because most of their emphasis was on hard-core performance rather than flashy cosmetic frills. They share the design concept of the top-of-the-line AR-9 and AR-90 speakers using dual side-facing woofers in an acoustic suspension enclosure to produce fantastic bass. The 2 woofers are 8-inch and complement a forward facing 8-inch cone midrange and a one-inch dome tweeter.

The lesser brother of the AR-93, the AR94, received a truly outstanding review in the October 1980 issue of High Fidelity. "Frankly, we were surprised at just how impressive the AR-94's tonal reach and balance proved to be...to the deepest organ fundamentals, we were mightily impressed with the unit's ability to put out clean, articulate bass...High frequencies...are handled with clarity and verve."

Very heavy and uses a wrap-around sock-style grill with top caps, a cosmetic design that Definitive Technologies, Mirage, etc. copied some 15 years later.

Condition: Excellent sound and cosmetics - fully tested.
New grill sock using original AR cloth; All 4 woofers replaced (new foam). Refinished walnut veneer, upgraded binding post speaker connectors.
Size: 31 x 14 x 11 inches

I am selling because I have upgraded to a pair of AR-90s
