At 36” height and and with an opening over 14” across, these phonograph-era style speakers make it very clear they're not ordinary audio equipment by any means. Designed to work with almost any stereo system, including iPods via a special tube amp, the theatrical Little Horn Speakers are made from high-density fiberglass and Baltic birch plywood, with an inverse design where lower frequencies are emitted from the top horn enclosures...Here's a description of the $1500/pair speakers:
The Little Horn Speakers come with a choice of Fostex full-range drivers providing various performance levels, efficiencies, and power handling capabilities. The Fostex drivers used are chosen specifically based on their proven performance in a great variety of experimental designs.
Those who are familiar with the legendary Fostex FE-103E will hear this driver in an entirely new way. The cutting edge FE-108 Sigma is a beautiful cast-frame driver with a radical new cone design with a particularly even response. These Fostex drivers perform effortlessly in the Specimen Little Horns and present a unique soundstage that gives listeners a brand new intimate three-dimensional audio experience.
And you may be asking why these are called the Little Horn Speakers. That's because they've got a much larger sibling, the XL Horn Speakers, alongside the Marsha Brady inbetween Single Horn version. Then there's the siamese twin Spinning Double Horn speaker. Seems like something for everyone, but we're most smitten with The Little Horn Speaker, which seem within the realm of reason of saving up for one day (at least when we could have a dedicated music listening room).
