History of Audio: AR 4x and KLH 17

History of Audio

History of Audio is a new series to be featured on the Hi-Fi+ YouTube channel.

The series will feature audiophiles who speak about what they’ve learned and observed through their respective journeys through hi-fi audio.

In this first installment, Nextscreen Executive Publisher Tom Martin takes us back to the 1960s with looks at the Audio Research AR 4x loudspeaker and the KLH 17, both small, bookshelf speakers.

Tom talks about the two speakers that came about 10 years into the introduction of acoustic suspension technology. He goes on to tell about who basically invented acoustic suspension technology and how it splintered into other manufacturers.

History of Audio aims to teach viewers a little about the History of Audio, which might be a trip down memory lane for many. It also hopes those who watch will learn from the varying experiences of other audiophiles through their trials and tribulations with different equipment.

While you’re on our YouTube channel, be sure to check out our Audio Basics series. So far, this series has covered what makes a great stereo system and how to find a great stereo system.

Soon, you can find reports from manufacturers at audio shows from around the world. Right now, you can see what debuted at AXPONA 2022.

Be sure to subscribe to the YouTube channel so you don’t miss any episodes!
