At The Sell It Now Store, we have a number of vintage speakers and other stereo gear for sale. We have a RARE pair that would make a great addition to that collection. This is a pair of 1960s Altec Milano 871A 871 loudspeakers.
These are a very high end and collectible
speaker system, and are very similar to the Valencia or
Iconic models. They measure approximately 30" high x 27" wide x20" deep. They use an alnico 15" woofer
(416-8Z) 2-way N-800-K crossover, and an 18" cast iron horn / driver / tweeter (806-8A/H-811 B). These drivers are same Altec used in many 1960's
and early 70's professional systems "The
Voice of the Theatre" models.
Scroll down to see all the pictures of these beautiful speakers below. These speakers are superb sonically and nice cosmetically, as well as adult owned and extremely well cared for. All drivers read between 7.0 and 7.2 ohms. This pair was either built during the Altec transition to black drivers or the one was replaced with an OEM driver years ago.
As you can see, there are a few minor marks, but they are very nice original survivors. These would be a great speaker pair for the audiophile, or the perfect speakers for your listening room or home theater.

tested the drivers and they are all functional and both speakers sound
as they should. These are waiting for you to place them in your listening environment.Any audio enthusiast will
appreciate the quality and craftsmanship of these speakers. Best of all, we are selling these speakers at no reserve. We will let the market determine the value. When wlll you ever see another set of these? Don't let them get away from you. Best of luck in the auction.
