I had been to Korea for 7 weeks to attend the wedding of my daughter.

I talked on the phone with Mr Chung whether Silbatone 300B SET is up to driving Altec A7 speaker which was available in West Vancouver, BC Canada across the border.

After getting positive opinion from Mr Chung, I bought Altec A7 which I plan to pick up after US Canada border get open.

Mr Chung will build Audio Museum for Western Electric vintage system with budget of 200 M USD which will be finished sometime 2023.

It will be located at south end of Seoul.

Althought the above linked You tube video is not in English, you can just follow the photos to get some idea.

Chung and Joe Roberts both recommended the Altec for those who could not afford WE, John Roberts owned one himself for many years, and at the last Munich JC Morrison had made the big bass panel that accompanied their WE with 8 Altec woofers. After hearing Misho's Altec 817, during my Altec research I read a lot of comments by John Roberts on the forums especially in favor of their woofers and therefore bought two pairs. The 817 is the bigger brother of the A7 and the A5 with dual woofers instead of 1, so the reflex bass in A7 comes in much higher, but needs a bigger room
