Checked it out! Interesting indeed. The 130 tweeter array is what dad has. Im sure the fact that they beam quite noticably all the way into the midrange, just kills the soundstage and imaging of these..but do they ever provide the best tonal quality these ears have heard in some time.
Intersting to note also the history of development after the war years and affiliations with KLH, Koss, AR and others including Roger West of SL fame.
The prices of the new models certainly reflects the time and expense put into the new models and updated technology. I may not be so quick to rush out an bring them home..but it was very nice to see A.A.'s son David take over and continue on his fathers passion with the new company.
Thanks much for this info and link to the site!
I once had Janszen 130s (and 65s, too) and I agree with Kehut's assessment of them. What I did was to construct a vertical ladder-frame and stack the elements. This widely opened the radiation pattern and vasatly improved the soundstage. However, it was at the expense of the low end requiring me to add a cone midrange to the system, going from 2way to 3way. Lovely sound, though.
