HUMAN Speakers is still building and shipping speaker parts
and complete speakers during this public health crisis.
I am well, and isolated, and I hope you and yours are too.
Please follow advised guidelines for handling packages upon arrival.

Once upon a time, I bought one of these from a customer, and included were the original owner's manual, a fistful of review reprints, and a sales brochure. I used it in my factory "listening area," and it ran my factory overhead speakers and workshop speakers day in and day out flawlessly. I eventually sold it, to a very motivated buyer.
Here are two great photos from that brochure:
