    I had a pair of Olson "Dynaco A25" knock-offs. I don't remember the model number. but they were okay for what they did. They were very rolled off on the top end (yes, I put in new caps). They were the only speaker I ever used where the Realistic add-on super tweeter actually helped. I ended up giving them away.

    Those sure look to be quality built. The Olsen stuff I have heard has been ok. I dig the cabinets!

    These were made in the 60,s. But just like all the others, quality declined starting in the early 70,s. This pair is very well built and all the drivers are near pristine. I'm waiting to recap them before having a listen but as far as I can tell they should sound pretty damn good.

    I have a pair of olsen s879 speakers they are a end table design round top decent cabinets and it look like the same components as the last poster speakers. I have had them for 10 yrs and recently dug them out to revive them.,I'll recap them and am looking forward to hearing them again.
