The design of the Hommage 755 is based on the esthetics of the Western Electric 753 loudspeaker, the sole speaker of Western Electric, which was offered for private use. Like as the Hommage à Ken speaker, the Hommage 755 is fitted with the LM 755 Alncio driver. All parameters of driver were carefully tuned to the dimensions of the cabinet.
The development and realisation of the concept – supplemented by further insights that derived from the manufacturing of other speakers by Auditorium 23 – led to a result that gives a strong signal in the segment of full-range speakers.
The physical properties of the LM 755 driver are perfectly maintained in all parameters by LineMagnetic Audio. The extreme complex and costly Alnico-structure, the thin pole plate, the ‘overhanging’ wound voice coil (manufactured for the first time by Western Electric and a feature of the 7 series), the accurate and well considered large conception of the spider in a wisely produced basket with little windows, the flat shape of the membrane, built as a one piece dome-construction out of the cellulose-pulp – properties which Western Electric elaborated in the 1940s. More than a few consider the WE 755 driver to be the best full-range driver in general.
