I have been living with these early HL1s ( Serial Numbers 228 A & B ) for some time and have been surprised they aren't mentioned more. The equivalent (?) Spendor BC1s have a much higher profile. I bought them sans grilles ( the foam ones had rotted away ) and Sid Chaplin, of Traditional Radio Grilles, made me a superb pair. When one of the Audax tweeters lost some output, Jerry Bloomfield at Falcon Acoustics was very helpful sourcing two new units. It's good to keep older loudspeakers running and they complement my Harbeth P3ESRs used on a second system.
