Classic elegance: a circa 1960s KLH Model 24 loudspeaker, from The Audio Classics Collection.

     

    The KLH Model 24 with the grille off. Why bother making everything square and parallel when no one was going to see it? Photos by Howard Kneller.

     

    Here’s our friend the RCA Magic Brain again, now with a Magic Eye, the height of 1935 radio technology.

     

    OK, this is, hands down, no contest, game over, the coolest image that will ever appear in this column. Hope Lange models the Radio Hat on the June, 1949 cover of Radio-Electronics.

     

    Well, this 1961 Electronics Illustrated cover’s pretty cool also.
