A Classic—Quad's Corner Ribbon

On display in the ballroom at the Hi-Fi News Show: an original early-'50s Corner Ribbon speaker from the Acoustical Company, later to change its name to Quad.

I have a pair of these... passed down from my grandfather.one is rose veneer, the other is teak. the reason for this is that my grandfather bought one... then they invented stereo ! so he went out and bought another.beautiful sound... surprising bass due to the acoustic labyrinth.I have replaced the ribbons a few times because they melt so easily if overdriven. Its a very difficult job wielding steel tools near such a powerful magnet.
