Why would I want to buy vintage speakers?

Vintage, Baby

Sometimes new is not better. In the same way some people prefer a '62 Corvette to a new Porsche, certain audiophiles search out and collect vintage audio equipment, including speakers. Speakers made from the 20's, through the 70's by manufacturers such as Altec, Western Electric, JBL, Klangfilm, Ohm, and Quad are highly desirable not just for their collector value, but for their unique sound and craftsmanship.
