In a class by itself during HollywoodÕs golden era, the A7 was the only commercially available theater speaker approved by the Research Council of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Originally introduced in the 1950s, the A7 became a mainstay in recording studios and audiophilesÕ homes as well as in theaters.

The new Legacy A7 is a meticulous re-issueof this classic Altec speaker. Manufactured in the USA, it is true to the original in every engineering detail with one exception: more refined cabinetry.

 

Technologies mature. Tastes change. Audio evolves. However,

 

qualitatively speaking, some of the best speakers to ever hit the

 

market did so years ago. ThatÕs why Altec Lansing is re-issuing

 

some real classics: the 305 S, 508 S, and 510 S Ð speakers famous

 

for their sensitivity and power.

 

WhatÕs more, weÕve tweaked these systems ever so slightly,

 

enhancing their best qualities and furthering the Òart of

 

balance.Ó The result? An audio experience that offers all the best

A7

qualities of yesterday and today.
