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.

I always thought the CAM 16 looked like baby B&W 801s... in fact, I'm listening to a pair of brand new (never opened after 30 or so years in storage) CAM-16s next to my B&W 801 S3. They sound decent, not bad at all.
