  1. Ciao Adriano Immagini molto belle di papà e mamma. Tre anni fa ho iniziato con il mio primo AR 2ax e continuo ad ascoltarli, sono entusiasta di questo nuovo progetto, i saluti da Buenos Aires.
  2. Hi Frank Marsi I.M.O. They are BEAUTIFUL
  3. ndeed Genek, but the wood of these was in perfect condition, without moisture or stains, and when finished cleaning them, I will apply a special opaque paint to preserve them.
  4. Thanks samberger 0357 for your comment
  5. Hi Tom, thanks for your comment. As I would like to have you in Buenos Aires to hear more about these stories, as you can imagine they never arrived in Argentina, I appreciate sharing them with me. I tell you that the numbers are 31169/31170 and the year is 1958. The boxes are like new. Imagine if they were from the US embassy, and then had only one owner, they were very well taken care of. Unfortunately I sent the two woofer for repair, I prefer that they be measured with the same graduation. I send you warm greetings from Buenos Aires, and if you come one day, I would like to receive you. Hug.

      you will be welcome

  7. Hi Kent you are right, one was in good condition with cloth, the other seemed repaired a long time ago, and the rubber was damaged, my decision was drastic, removing the two woofers and sending to repair with the need for both to have the same equalization. You were indeed right, one of them had the cloth ring. I appreciate your comments, as the project progresses I will be uploading more photos. The process of washing the boxes has left them practically new.
  8. Greetings to the members from Buenos Aires. New project, my third pair of AR, recently acquired. When I bought it, I asked for its origin, and the answer was "directly from the American Embassy in Buenos Aires", that is, I am the third owner. AR-2 1958, unfinished pine, impeccable condition. Crossovers new inside, as newly manufactured, tweeters in very good condition. When I listen at home, their sound was spectacular. Neither my AR-2ax, nor my AR-6, have the medium and treble response of these boxes. I only decided to send the woofers to refoam, in order to equalize them the same. To begin the work, I removed the emblematic warranty labels from the back, which are retained to be glued again. I attach the first photos. Treatment with lemon salt in gel, to remove dirt marks on the wood. The first results showed a wood in excellent condition, considering that they are from 1958. As the work progresses, I will upload more photos. Comments are always welcome.

    Hi JKent, Starting a new restoration project, this time a pair of AR6 speakers. Do not have the original tweeters, I need your opinion about the best replacements, since I should buy 2 new ones, and if possible the crossover plane, I appreciate your comments, greetings from Argentina

    Dear JKent, when you return to Buenos Aires, I will be waiting with my restored 2ax, a glass of fine Malbec bottle and an original Argentine "Asado" (roast), and of course, listen music in my AR

    Need Help

    Hi friends, I need some help, I am restoring a pair of AR 2ax, serial number 96xx, and I need the original circuit of the crossover. A photo would also be very helpful, an old restoration modified the original contacts. Thank you very much, and greetings from Argentina.
