Snell Acoustics Type A Loudspeakers, Early Versions
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.
