Just some ADS history here


Hello-To this day, I am still using my ADS L810 speakers. I am always wanting to upgrade them. I have gone through a Pioneer RX-434 receiver (If I am right?), A NAD 8030, once again if I am right, (It was 90 a side back then), then a Polk Audio full surround receiver. Now, to stay I am pretty sure, a McIntosh MHT200 A/V System Controller. I have to say this-It Works Just Fine! I remember in the 80's seeing Mc's and ADS together. It is a true match. The ADS with their dome tweeters, like Audio Research (Correct me again if I am wrong.) Thank you for reading, GREG
P.S.-Best Album to listen too for sound? Steve Khan-PUBLIC ACCESS, trust me on that!

I remember lusting after a pair of L810 II's back in 1981, after hearing woodwinds reproduced on them....   Haven't heard them since, but I have thought it would be cool to hear them again to see how they hold up to all the great speakers I've owned in the decades since.
Wasn't one of the designers for ADS, Michael Kelly? The guy behind Aerial Acoustics now? I may have the name wrong. I use to own ADS 320i speakers for auto applications that he was the designer of.????
Thanks! for the hot tip on Steve Khan - gregforluck
I enjoyed ADS car audio speakers back in the 80's. Never had an opportunity to audition the home speakers.
Happy Listening!
Thanks for the heads up on Steve Khan, Bravo.

I was told that this is the case by my dealer, Duane, just this last Saturday; I hadn’t known it before that. Important distinction: he was one of the main designers with ADS when it was still in its EARLIER form........   Anyway, I also owned a pair of ADS two-way speakers for my van that were of that vintage and they were outstanding.  They had great midbass punch and a detailed but smooth high end.   rx8man owned a pair as well, and he may still have them.  In my mind, this fact goes a long way towards explaining the excellence the Aerial company.
