here are random and not so random pix of my audio travels… these objects inspire me to make audio gear. i can’t generally afford to own or collect this kind of stuff, although i have worked with most of it. and when i have owned it, it wasn’t long before i sold it to pay rent or eat. but this is all stuff that i admire. the weirdest, cleverest, or best made of the best!
WE-59 the rarest of the rare? i love those mercury rectifiers!
WE-43, 1920’s brute force.
and a close up…
WE-42 elegant frankenstein…
WE-15A this one was originally at an ice skating rink… where it was in operation for nearly 60 years. it still sounds amazing!
WE-13A with WE-597 in background. sorry for the grainy pic… it was dark. but this thing is so pretty.

this is one of the absolute best sounding systems in the world, and the speakers were made before 1928.
