What is stereo?

There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

Bozak B-401 Rhapsody

 For a quarter century - since the beginning of "high fidelity" - Bozak loudspeakers have been acknowledged as representing the highest standard of music reproduction.
This has been true both for all types of music and for every range of loudspeaker size and price.
Recognition of Bozak quality has not been confined to music in the home. The same qualities which have kept Bozak pre-eminent among those striving for the finest living-room music reproduction have been equally - perhaps even more so - recognized by professional musicians and audio engineers. The result is that the compact loudspeakers in this folder carry with them the same name and reputation as the sound systems used for the Broadway hit musicals A Little night Music and Candide, in such famed outdoor concert locations as the Hollywood Bowl, Tanglewood and Ravinia and in the mobile orchestra stand used by the New York Philharmonic for its summer series of Concerts in the Park.
While enclosure size bears a direct relationship on loudspeaker performance, the compact speaker systems described below have been engineered by Bozak so that active components complement each specific cabinet size to provide the maximum faithfulness of music reproduction for the particular sizes involved.
Model B-401 (free standing unit sculptured foam grille)
Model B-402 (bookshelf unit with changeable cloth grille)
The largest of Bozak's line of compact speakers, the Rhapsody is available in two enclosure configurations, both of which feature genuine walnut veneer surfaces with Bozak's special stain-resistant matte finish.
Model B-401 is a vertical free-standing unit with a pedestal base and with a sculptured foam grille. It can accommodate an insert of glass, slate or marble to protect the fine finish of the top when it is used as an end table.
Model B-402 is a bookshelf version with a changeable cloth grille. It may be used either vertically or horizontally since all surfaces (except the back) are completely finished.
A true three-way system, its speaker complement includes the famed 12-inch variable-density, high-compliance Bozak B-199A bass speaker, the patented B-209B midrange driver, developed in Bozak's laboratories to give maximum presence in the midrange without "break-up" distortions, and the dual B-200Y tweeter array for broad dispersion of the upper frequencies without the shriliness so often encountered. Midrange clarity is further heightened by the fact that the driver is completely isolated from the bass enclosure.
This combination of the very same speakers used in the largest Bozak systems, combined with a passive L-C crossover network, provides a full spectrum of true sound from natural bass through clear midtones to the highest shrill-free treble.
A three-position Acoustical Contour switch permits adjustment of the output frequency response to accommodate varying room acoustics or individual preferences.
If your circumstances require a compact speaker, there is no better choice than the Bozak Rhapsody.
