I, personally, think Allison is some of the finest speakers that's been made. I've always wanted some Allison Ones, but couldn't afford them. Back in the 60s (I think), Roy Allison was the chief engineer for AR speakers. He was in that position when he left to start his own company.

Here is a good review that was for Allison Fours, but would really fit about any Allison. Check it out........

I have a pair of Allison 4 speakers, I believe they're in good condition, yet sold as is.   $300 OBO plus s/h by usps, which is about $30 per speaker, but will get price if you are serious.

That is a very tough question Allison One's where out of my budget in 1978 when I bought my Allison Fours which were $375/pr. When the Allison One's where re-released in about 2006 they were  $5350/pr. I currently have both the One's and the Four's which I would NOT sell. If ericrk still has his Four's for $300. you should buy them they sound sublime when set up properly ... vocals are stellar. FYI: Do not replace the woofers on any of the old Allisons for $25 you can re-foam them they are not replacable everything in the box was custom designed by Roy. Roy Allison left AR with the former president Abe Hoffman to create the best speakers in the world ... they don't have a "sweet spot" like all the flat baffled speakers so you can be most anywhere in the room and get great sound. Roy's main objectives was to eliminate the dip in power in the 100-300Hz range and that makes for full and rich vocals etc.

I have a pair of Allison Ones that I bought new. These are the big floor standing model 40" high. They are in excellent condition and sound spectacular. No mars on cabinetry or issues with screen. I can send photos if you like. I was thinking of $1000 for the pair? Let me know or call me at my cell 703.517.1345

YES!!! IF you're still interested, I got a pair of the Allison 3's and Allison 4's with me! NOW, I want to tell you they will need some "touching up" to do, like revanishing the cabinets, and replacing the foam in the speakers, but I do have them in my possession. Would you be interested in any of them?? Please let me know, and I can send you pictures. Thanks ERIC

I am looking to sell my pair of Allison 4 speakers. Hate to give them up, but it's time. Anyone interested? Any suggestions as to a fair price for a pair in good condition? Originally bought them on the late 70's and have always loved them.
