Altec Lansing celebrates its A7 heritage by reintroducing the A7 “Voice of the Theatre” loudspeaker system, using the same materials, specs and production drawings as the original.
"The new A7 is a meticulous re-issue of our original product," said Mark Lucas, president and CEO of Altec Lansing Technologies. "Every detail, every specification is based on historic research and painstaking design analysis. For anyone from vacuum tube amplification fans to modern-day digital system lovers, the new A7 is a piece of history they can enjoy right in their own music room or home theater."
The product's low-frequency Model 515 Lansing® woofer is specifically designed to maximize the performance of the A7's bass horn cabinet, using an edge-wound, copper-clad aluminum ribbon voice coil. The Model 902 high-frequency compression driver, also a part of the A7, features a 100-percent aluminum diaphragm for extended high-frequency performance. Frequency response in the new product is now 35-22k Hz, and the crossover has been improved to accommodate SACD and DVD-A.
Housing the A7's drivers is an individually numbered speaker cabinet constructed of 13-layer Baltic Birch, finished with the black-splatter finish.
Priced at $4,000 per loudspeaker, Altec Lansing's new A7 speakers are available only via the company's corporate Website, www.alteclansing.com. For more new sound reinforcement products, visit mixonline.com/livesound/products/.
