Pioneer HPM-100

Pioneer HPM-110

1 9 7 6 1976
1 9 8 1 1981

Bestselling speaker from a bestselling series designed by ex-JBL man Bart Locanthi.

Of all the versions made between 1976 and 1980, only the HPM-100 was distributed in Japan after the initial USA launch (although it was made in Japan :) but it didn't do well there : this really was a USA (and to a lesser extent an EU) product.

The HPM-100's filter was revised three times for improved power handling (the HPM-900 and HPM-110 being the last - but ugly in vinyl black) and saw a few higher siblings like the much better HPM-150 and many lower ones.

Not really "audiophile" speakers but vibrant and lively.

All about it here.
