I’d like to introduce you to a life changing pair of speakers. At least your audiophile life :>.
The Altec Model 19 Studio Monitor Speakers. These are vintage 1974 2-way, all original speakers that are the best I have ever owned. If you will indulge me, I shall storyboard this a little for you so you know what you are getting, what I am parting with and some of the why.
In my quest for sonic perfection as a Quasi Audiophile for the last 35 years, I have owned and operated many pieces of audio equipment – just for the shear enjoyment of combining pieces and listening to the results. Then, one day comes the opportunity of a lifetime – to finally own something legendary, coveted. All the stars aligned. Enter the opportunity to purchase the Altec Model 19’s. A long drive, a rented trailer and a precarious trip through snow covered mountain passes in the dead of winter was not enough to deter me. I got there and came away with my dream speakers.
Its hard to put into words how having these speakers has altered my listening. Better description would be how they have informed my listening. I have heard many with adjustments onboard, but nothing I have ever heard compares to what you can get out of these speakers – they are truly a reference point.
I have used them in my own quasi mixing studio environment – sending every kind of music on the planet through them in creating, mixing, even live music at low volume. But where they are keenly at home is spread out, set back in a large enough room and then fussed with, toed in, crossovers fiddled with, height adjustments, positioning, connected to tube amp, drop a new 180g vinyl album, start dancing, hold onto your martini glass.
In listening you will find such clarity, such flat response with capacity to tweak it to sharp or sweet with the large controls on each. These speakers bring chills easier, and the voice of the theater style metal horns sound reproduction is unmatched in realism to anything I have ever heard. I have enjoyed them immensely, now due to size constraints and changing situation, I find the time right for me to return these to the market so a new enthusiast can dive into their sound and march them forward.
Let us discuss current state condition.
The equipment is all original, cones, surrounds, VOT horn, cabinets, internal lining, veneer, terminals. I bought the from original owner who never fussed with them.
The crossovers work very well in tuning, I have not tested the crossover networks or even pulled them out – there has been no need. They are sublime. A deoxit may be in order – I never wanted to mess with their removal so not since factory have they been removed (so far as I know).
The cabinets are true and good to very good shape. The body veneer very good, both the tops however are solid and decent, but have been worn /show wear. Some staining and a little water damage perhaps on one (previous owner), woodworking is not my long suit so I never got tops done to my satisfaction. Still, they look great.
Drivers all in working order
Cones all clean and in working order
Horns in working order
Crossovers / controls in working order
Dust caps – good working order. Note one dustcap has lost mesh cover in center, does not affect sound.
No speaker grills.
