I tried to buy a pair of ESS Translinear speakers the other day even though I don't need another pair of speakers. This was more for nostalgia because I remembered I really liked these speakers back in the 1970's. I limited my offer to a token amount because they needed some repairs and the drivers and electronic crossover are 40 years old so the seller declined my offer. I was curious to hear how these vintage speakers from the early 1970's compared to my Alon 1's. Especially the ESS transmission line bass with the Kef B139 woofers which I remembered sounded great back in the 1970's. Does anyone know how these would compare to the sealed box designs of the more modern day speakers such as the the Alon's?
