Wah, my friend, another Head-Fier, spotted an AKG at the bus stop. At first I thought it was the black Q 701, but it looked something more like the K 272 with an all-black appearance. Too many of the AKGs look the same. -.-

Probably a K240? I own the K272 and have been trying to find replacement parts for them for a very long time. I don't think akg has different colored 272s.

I went to Lynbrook. Sang in choir and Jazz Choir, and was in two plays there. Grew up in Regency Park townhouses.

Unfortunately, she's only 22 months right now, so that day will be quite a while away, but I can't wait to pass on to her my L3000s (giving me an excuse to get the L10,000s that'll be out by then!).

My daughter is about 3 years younger than yours, lives on the Peninsula, and is the great granddaughter of the great Dr. Oskar Heil. She shall inherit all of his vintage audio equipment and the stories behind them. Like her great granpappy's ESS Mark 1 cans, in original box from 1976.

Wow? Isn't he some sort of important innovator of the microwave?

He also invented the "air-motion transformer" audio speaker technology [6] made famous by the amt1 speaker of ESS in the early 1970s.[7]

The amt diaphragm is made of a mylar ribbon, bonded with conductive aluminum strips. It is equivalent in surface area to a conventional seven-inch cone type mid-range driver, but is accordion-folded down to a compact one and a half inch grouping for point-source dispersion. The low-mass diaphragm is suspended within a dipole magnetic field concentrating an intense field around said diaphragm. When signal current passes through the aluminum strips, the ensuing bellows-like motion of the folded pleats moves air five times faster than with a conventional cone driver. This rapid acceleration of air-motion is claimed to provide enhanced sound reproduction, including high dynamic range and over a broad frequency range.
