It's a rare opportunity to get to listen to even one of today's top speakers between the Cessaro, Vox Olympians and Wilson Wamms you'd think one would have heard it all until you hear a vintage horn like Andrews WE's, for me this is were it's at.

The system wasn't hooked up at the time and I was there only for a day so we were concentrating on the WE system.

Holy $h!t....I think is the appropriate response.

Makejestic, is the word that come to mind when I think of how it must sound. Sweeping is another.

Sweet David, it looks as if the Big Blue Micro is still hanging with Andrew; however, it’s armless :)!

What a trip!

Cheers!

My thoughts exactly! If I had that in my office, I wouldn't get any work done! I wouldn't even be able to study enough to get started in earnest! LOL

Decisions get made in office. Ideas are normally generated outside.

I'm just kidding you Khun Tang. :) If it were me, the bulk of decisions made would be which LP to play LOL

Now we know moola is in far east.:D

My local dealer friend is a Line Magnetic dealer. His Magnetic’s Replica Western Electric Theater Speaker System is very impressive. I wonder how it compares to WE original.

I have heard the line magnetic, GIP, and WE in the same speaker (16a replicas). The LM are not as good as the others. For those on a budget, start with Goto (i haven't heard, but been advised) or silvercore. Original WE or GIP is many times more

I'm thinking that if I had a world class system in my office I'd be more successful!
