Description

Sponsored post - log in to remove this ad.

I have a VERY nice pair of all original Allison Model Two speakers. These are very well regarded in the audio community, and unlike most "rare" listings are actually quite difficult to find. These are definitely keepers. The only reason I would ever consider letting them go is if I found a pair of model One's in similar or better condition. Well, I have and I am looking for a new home that will appreciate and care for these important and highly collectible speakers. All four grills are complete, intact, and in good shape. The cabinets are exquisite oiled walnut, and all 12 drivers are in beautiful working order. 1 Tweeter has been replaced with an original part, and all 4 woofers have been re-foamed.

These were designed by Roy Allison who worked with Edgar Vilchur to establish Acoustic Research or AR as one of the leading and most innovative audio companies of all time. He was a pioneer in the field of room acoustics, in which a speaker is designed to perform its best in real home environments instead of an anechoic chamber test studio. The model One and its nearly identical sibling the model Two were the pinnacle of his work. His many achievements are terribly fascinating to us audio nerds, and a little research will be richly rewarded.

These speakers are designed to sit up against a wall for optimum performance. Not only is this the best placement for sound(opposite of most speakers), it has the added benefit of intruding on the space in your home the least, and leaves itself less vulnerable to accidents, children or pets. The unique triangle shaped cabinet has two front baffles each containing a proprietary in-house built nipple dome tweeter, dome mid-range, and 8" woofer for a total of 6 uniquely matched, built to spec drivers in each speaker. This allows the speaker to use your room acoustics to it's fullest potential, and eliminates the "sweet spot". Your whole room is now the sweet spot. Complex orchestral passages are simply enveloping. Rock and R&B have a very live presentation and sound more like an actual concert than directional designs. The cabinets, finished in beautiful oiled walnut are heirloom furniture grade and will be a stunning addition to any decor while maintaining a slender footprint. In the sadly mostly male world of audio nerds we call this an extremely high wife approval factor(waf).

They sound absolutely wonderful, and are available for audition to serious buyers. I am looking for a local cash sale, but will consider trades for other high end speakers, or tube gear. If you got this far, thanks for checking out my listing. I hope to hear from you.
