AR(Acoustic Research) AR-90
198,000 yen(around the one-set and 1980 time)

The Tallboy type speaker system of the vartical series which inherited the main designs of AR-9 and realized the miniaturization further.

Two 25cm corn type Woofers are carried in low-pass, and little distorted low-pitched sound play is realized by installing in enclosure both sides.

The same 20cm corn type Woofer as AR-9 is carried in inside low-pass.
The natural vocal play is realized by having prevented the mutual intervention by mounting to the subenclosure, and also making this unit take charge of 200Hz - 1200Hz which is a vocal zone.

a crown -- the unit of a 1.9cm dome shape is carried in the 3.8cm dome shape and the high region in the region.
The same thing as AR-9 is adopted like [ these units ] inside low-pass, the magnetic fruid of the shape of colloid which is tinged with the magnetism of NASA development was put in between the voice coil and the yoke, and the input-proof is improved while aiming at distorted reduction from a central axis as a structure as for which Bure is not.

A "17AWG sky core coil", a "computer class electrolytic condenser", "input-proof [ unguided quantity ] ceramic resistance", etc. are used for the network portion.

The acoustic suspension system of AR tradition is adopted as the enclosure.
By this system, air can achieve the duty of a spring by carrying out full sealing of the core, compliance can be enlarged, and it is possible to make low-pass resonance frequency lower.
Moreover, the acoustic blanket which is a special sound-absorbing material was attached to the surroundings of a driver unit, and sound quality degradation by reflective sound is prevented.
Finishing is walnut oil finishing.
