Extremely Rare Design Acoustics D-12 Dodecahedron Omnidirectional Speaker

Extremely rare Design Acoustics D-12, a dodecahedron omnidirectional speaker. This was one of Design Acoustics first products and it essentially made the name for the company. It was reviewed by Julian Hirsch in Stereo Review in the 70's and received some of the highest marks given by Hirsch to any speaker ever. The D-12 remained for some time as the magazine's highest rated speaker, with a perfect 100% score overall. Years later, it was still mentioned favorably. This is one of the closest speakers to ever achieve true "omnidirection," radiating sound evenly in all directions. 10 drivers cover the surface, as per the original design, and the wood has been refurbished with beautiful Brazilian Rosewood. Sits on it's original chrome base.
Many pieces are stored in our warehouse, so please give us a call at (323) 463-4434 or email us at info@thomashayesgallery.com to find out if the pieces you are interested in seeing are on the gallery floor. Thank you!
