    Another French line, maybe not really "vintage", guess that depends on what or how far back one wants to go, but look for Rehdeko. They are kind of a speaker one will love or hate, not much in between. Currently a German company, Tocaro, has a speaker line roughly based on the Rehdeko, maybe more of the look than anything else. I have been wanting to listen to the Tocaro, but here in the US, they are rare, even though they are distributed here, not many dealers though. FWIW

    Just recently discovered there is a dealer about an hour away who has a good stock of modern French speakers.
    I found out about it whilst browsing the JMR website and reading about the Euterpe Supreme. I contacted the dealers with my requirements without mentioning what speaker I was after, and he has recommended the Euterpe.

    I may have to go for a listen, although there are a couple of pairs of Offrandes for sale. The signature pair are a tad expensive, but look very nice and I am yet to hear a bad word spoken about them.
