There doesn't seem to be much information on EMI (sometimes Benjamin-EMI) loudspeakers. I used to have a couple pair of extended range EMI oval drivers #93870. Interestingly made. Melhuish's website has a sentence written about them. Anyone ever take the time to upload a catalogue scan of EMI's driver line-up? Perhaps there is an EMI 'fan club' webpage out there someplace.

Those oval EMIs were quite frequently advertised in HFN&RR in the 60s and 70s. They were also used in some DIY constructions published in HFN&RR during the same period. I do not have a scanner since I threw out the old SCSI scanner so I can not help with much more info Crying or Very sad

Hi there, I sure would like to see some of those old timey scans. Too bad about your late scanner, may it R.I.P.

I have a pair of these EMI:

HFN&RR (hi-fi news etc?) was a stereo publication I imagine? It seems EMI made a few different drivers, including a smooth sounding bextrene cone mid-tweeter.
