About thirty years ago, a company called Ohm Acoustics gained popularity in the audiophile crowd for their Walsh Driver series of loudspeakers. Pioneered by Lincoln Walsh, the Walsh driver uses a very special inverted cone, which fires outward to produce very life-like sound. Their Model F from 1972 is one of the highest regarded tower speakers ever made. It has a small footprint, and projects an extremely wide, open soundstage.
Over the years, the model has been refined and, currently, the top of the line Walsh 5 Mk-2 is produced. The entire Walsh series is renowned for their imaging and soundstage, and what Ohm refers to as 'Full Room Stereo'. The fact that Ohm Acoustics still produces an ever-evolving line of Walsh driver speakers, and even upgrades older models is a testament to their dedication.
