This morning I had a peek into the Silbatone room to see how the set up progresses there.
This year they will be showing something completely different.
A system which does not have a historic pendant but is a new creation. The straight 'trumpet' horns actually predate electric recording.
Two of these horns are accompanied by a Western Electric 24A horn. All equipped with 555 drivers.
And a tweeter for the top end.
The large bass cabinet in the center uses two different types of woofers:
So apparently at least 5 ways. We need to see how all this will play together.
This set up will quite certainly attract a huge crowd again.
Stay tuned for updates and first sound impressions from this room.
