the mid-1940s Western Electric began – in consequence of better
magnetic basic material – to develop drivers with alnico magnets.
During that period the series 7 with its models 728, 754, 713 and as
the smallest full-range driver the WE 755 as a 20 cm unit, were
developed. In the last couple of years these drivers are rarely to find
worldwide as originals. Even later types from Altec with ferrite
magnets are rare.
With a driver very similar to the
historic original, the Chinese manufacturer Line Magnetic Audio gave us
the possibility to design a full-range speaker solution. The timeless
aesthetics of the WE 753 speakers use of form led us to adopt it
for our own new product line of loudspeakers.
