Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: "to reflect new thinkings and innovations and materials"......

Depends on the price point.

Vintage as in before copper rings on pole pieces, frame venting below the spider, or neo magnets...

You might not be able to beat a vintage midbass with a $25 driver from China but you can do it with a Zaph driver that costs $50 to $60. There are many very-high-value midbass and tweeters available now if one knows what to look for.

Scan Speak (now owned by Tymphany) has come out with value price point drivers that use Scan Speak motor technology and the bang for the buck is incredible. You can get midbass drivers in the $65 range that crush the previous generation performance wise.

Unless your idea of vintage is "Seas Excel Magnesium"... I don't think the vintage argument is a any longer true.

What could be true is a specific vintage *design* is just a better overall *design*!
