Unity Audio Signature 1 loudspeaker

90unity.promo250.jpgFor anyone who wants to be up to date on all the audio products available in North America, Audio's Annual Equipment Directory is an indispensable source of information. (So is the publication you're reading now, of course.) The 1992 Directory (aka Audio's October issue) arrived when I was finishing up the review of the Acarian Alón IV (see February 1993, Vol.16 No.2) and about to start seriously listening to the Unity Audio Signature 1s. As I leafed through the issue, I wondered how fledgling loudspeaker manufacturers feel reading the section on loudspeakers. According to the Directory, there are 329 makers of speakers (17 more than in 1991) producing no fewer than 2286 different models. How can a new loudspeaker manufacturer compete with the established makes and their marketing clout, brandname recognition, and economics of scale? You'd better have a really good product—or be a genius at promotion.

Tech HiFi phone: 477-hifi.

People still like those Walsh versions.

TechHifi closed it's doors well before vinyl died but so did our Stereoland & Audioland Chains and High Fidelity Workshop ( I worked there when Erica Morini was still performing and recording ). All the rest mostly closed up over the next decade ( including my Retail Store "Esoteric Audio". Phew.

It's rumored that we still have Harry Francis of Audio Dimensions on Woodward Ave. and one remaining Linn Dealer in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Audio was Hot till the 1980s. What the hell happened to make the bottom fall out? It was thrilling to be in the Audio Business.

I know someone that still uses the Ohm Walsh in his basement.

The CD. It hampered a listener's ability to become emotionally engaged with the recorded performance.

I currently own a pair of Walsh 4000 and have owned them for many years. I have a love hate relationship with them,
On some Stereo recordings I love them but when I use them with my home theatre setup (Sunfire 5 channel amp and Sunfire Processor, and the brand new Oppo DVD player I don't feel immersed.

Many years ago I had a pair of Ohm Walsh 2's. I remember being in awe at the fact that I could stand directly in front of one speaker and hear the other one. Then, of course, the tweeter in one of them blew out and I sold them to someone I didn't even know, I think it was for about $50.00. Even still, I have fond memories of those speakers.

The Survivalists: Mosaic and Newvelle Records

One is a well-established reissue label, known the world over for its completist black boxes filled with beautifully remastered jazz recordings from the 1930s through the 1960s.

The other is a new label that records only new jazz, released in elaborate packages that include a poem and original artwork, not to mention transparent 180gm pressings, tying into the newly fashionable idea of a vinyl lifestyle.

In both cases, hope truly springs eternal.
