Snell Acoustics Type A Loudspeakers, Early S/N
Snell Acoustics made great speakers right down the road from us, initially in Newburyport, and later in Haverhill, Massachusetts. Snell Acoustics were founded in 1976 by Peter Snell to develop a speaker that "disappeared" sonically; providing the listener with uncolored and pure music. Snell's approach combined excellent quality drivers sourced from Europe, and hand-built, hand-matched crossovers to ensure those drivers were performing at Peter's highest possible standards.
It is rumored that Peter Snell personally matched each pair of speakers to a "Reference" pair in his listening room, and I've met a few former employees who have corroborated that story. Incredible attention to detail, and at a time before computer simulation and analysis!
These Snell Type A were the top of the line offering from Snell in the earliest years of the company. With sequential/matched/early serial numbers (381/382) this pair of "A's" provide an exceptional sound stage with height and depth that is unmatched by nearly any other speaker - Then or now.
These speakers have been serviced and tested. They are also probably the cleanest set of A’s we’ve ever seen. They are ready to last another 30+ years.
Demos are available at our Lawrence, MA showroom with COVID precautions in place.
