Hello All - I have a pair of these. Wondering if anyone knows anything about them, if they are good, bad, otherwise, worth anything?
I'm thinking of picking up an Onkyo Receiver and using these as the front L&R. Would be interested in suggestions for the surround and powered sub to match on a fairly tight budget.
The story goes like this:
The ADC company had always made audio
components, which were disdained by
'audiophiles', mostly cheap, noisy, crappy
equalizers and the like. So, in about '91, I
read review in Sterophile Magazine. They
praised the ADC speakers and awarded
them with the 'best under $1000 speakers'.
I think the retail price was ~$800. But, no
one bought these speakers despite the
raves from Sterophile. ADC discontinued
them, and I think shortly went out of
business. My guess is: The production of
Soundimage speakers was ADC's last ditch
effort to get out of the red. They made
tons of these speakers which did not sell.
The 'audiophiles' literally spited themselves
by not considering them because of ADC's
speakers are not like regular speakers;You point them at each other, not towards
They interact with each other
to correct for frequency responses.
They contain dual 10" woofers, a
mid-range, a tweeter, and a super-tweeter.
The super-tweeter is positioned towards
the listener, unlike the other components.
