    Those EMI 350's are nothing even remotely special. Boot sale fodder in my view, worth a tenner (to me at least)!

    I agree - there's not even a remote whiff of any BBC or LS3/5A associations which normally account for exaggerated prices.

    Well Geoff, in 1967 as apprentices, they were a sort of revelation - the ones with the two angled plastic tweeters that is, but yes even by the early 70s they were just another speaker, and now a historical artefact.

    Yes Tony, there is no association with the BBC heritage, but there is with that free era of abundance and social revelation in which there was a lot of technical development money.

    You refer to the EMI 450.



    This is a horrible device. I bought a new pair From G.W.Smith in 1971. They were dreadful.

    Ending today and could go cheap. Tannoy Dorset speakers. Collect from Caterham. Sound rather nice these. Proper dual concentrics!

    Not really a HI Fi speaker, the plastic coned tweeters did not go up as high as the much better paper coned one used on the 350. Also the 450 did have a very small magnet. That said, the 450 could make quite a bit of noise from a low powered amplifier, so connecting it to a radio or record player with a poor speaker could result in an improvement.
