The original "new" Advent loudspeaker. Appeared around the early seventies. Designed by Henry Kloss. A simple two way design which to this day still sounds better than many boutique speakers costing thousands more. I purchased mine in 1977 while in college (I'm aging myself here). I still have them, they still sound great. As a matter of fact my son, who is sixteen years old, loved the sound so much he purchased a pair off ebay for himself. I won't give mine up

I'm probably going to get killed by all the haters out there, but if there truly were a speaker hall of fame, the Bose 901 would belong in it. Now before you start throwing tomatoes (or worse) think about this for a sec. The 901 was a revolutionary design, came with a dedicated eq, and defined the "hi-end" for a decade or so. If you ask 99% of the population to name a hi-end speaker company, they will say Bose. It all started with the 901.

that was a revolution there - the concept..... and it eventually led to sats all around with a dedicated subwoofer....

Possibly not as nice sounding as some of the other speakers mentioned here (and I can say I have never listened to a pair of them), but they were highly regarded during their time. And if I am not mistaken, I think they were the best selling speaker for many years-and might still be?
Of course, I am very partial to old Dyna equipment- I pulled out my Stereo 70 tonight for the first time in a couple of years and I am so enjoying it right now....
