Product Design SS-G7

  • Product Design SS-G7

An ambitious offering developed by Sony's Audio Business Group, which had just been formed. The speakers effectively updated the Sony image in this category, with features such as carbon cones, an inline speaker layout (arranged on the same vertical and horizontal axes), and a grooved baffle for better acoustics. Audiophiles also noticed other details in the original style, such as the way the woofer edge protrudes from the baffle. The SS-G7 was even praised by Austrian conductor Herbert von Karajan on a visit to Japan in 1977.
