I Got The Unicorn of Speakers! AR18s Speaker Review

➡️➡️Watch our interview with Hugh Padgum here: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnLOmVwRMCqRcoP_3eJ0yKDo0GLPkLL7r For months I have been looking for the unicorn of speakers, the AR18s, and today I am so excited to unbox them with you! Producer Hugh Padgham has used these speakers his whole career and has made records by Peter Gabriel, Genesis, The Police, Phil Collins and MORE on them. The AR18s Speakers are extremely hard to find so to be able to have a pair in near perfect condition is amazing! Back in 1982 Edgar Villchur, founder of the original Acoustic Research Company already knew stuff about acoustic engineering and loudspeaker design many modern day designers have only come to know in recent years. One such aspect is the minimalist cross-over network, that when implemented in conjunction with custom designed drive units, bring about unparalleled transparency from the transducer system. The AR18s are one of those timeless designs that seemingly yet constantly increase its capabilities as technology from the opposite end of the listening system improves. They are a two way stand mount loudspeaker (bookshelf design in old school) using an in house designed and manufactured 8″ mid/woofer and a 1.25″ cone type tweeter both made of good old paper. The box is of acoustic suspension (sealed box) design (a proprietary Edgar Villchur development) and is of good proportions to promote rigidity. And yes, all speakers prior to the AR model One from the mid nineteen fifties were other than sealed enclosure designs. The AR18s has a fantastically neutral and engaging upper bass / lower midrange spectrum. Pitch definition is never questioned with these speakers. Bass lines are driven forth with speed, tightness and accuracy despite being a little lean when moved away from the wall. Driven by a high-end vacuum tube amplifier and a decent record player as source, these speakers leave you longing for very little. ❤️My Favorite Plugins:
