Legendary pair of AR-LST studio monitors.
Originally purchased in June 1974 and used until December
1996 as the monitors in the main control room of a very busy Detroit recording
studio. In storage until recently. Now completely restored to Acoustic Research
original specs. Woofers are original and
have been re-foamed. All eight tweeters
are new. All eight midrange are in excellent condition. Oiled walnut speaker
cabinets are original. Some small nicks, but over- all in very good condition.
For those not familiar with the AR-LST monitors:
The AR-LST employs the same driver elements as the legendary
AR-3a, but four mid-range and four tweeter units are used for increased power
handling capability. In addition, the AR-LST offers a choice of six different
output characteristics (spectral energy profiles), each accurately known and
available at the turn of a switch. One of these profiles is at the state art
permits, from 30 to 20,000 Hz.
