    The only odd thing different is silhouette in the email link has a very slight triangular top while the HK images are flat.

    I was wonderin' about that, too, but more in an abstract way.
    I thought that it was hopelessly out of fashion to make a loudspeaker enclosure in the form of a rectangular prism in 2019.

    Maybe it's the grill that has the slight triangular shape.

    Harry Olson was a visionary ;)

    (he really was -- I am not sure I've ever heard a better sounding coaxial speaker than his/RCA's LC-1A)

    Oh, they're beautiful all righty. Most of the RCA "Refrigerator" cabinets were a utility grey color. I know a fellow with a pretty pair not unlike the ones above (although that's a borrowed photo from teh webz).

    Elvis approved of 'em...

    And you can make out a different layout, with a downward facing power port. That isn't present in the Hong Kong pictures.
