    They sound open, smooth & musical ... old but nice speakers. :clapper:
    There's not a ton of info out there on them, but they are very detailed without being bright with INCREDIBLE imaging and great hard hitting bass (when needed). They're pretty big too. The grills are a bit funny and they're expensive to fix if one of the woofers or tweeters dies but they really are fantastic. I wish I could find another set but of course, I'd need money to buy them anyway. LOL!

I loved that system but at the time weren't doing much 2-channel so we sold it. I regret selling that gear to this day. It was absolutely fantastic sounding and really didn't require much setup. It was just nice/clean and had great synergy.

    About 7-8 years ago, our house was robbed and they stole all the electronics, so our everything is new since that time.

    Except for the VHS VCR (a fance 4-head hi-fi model) I purchased in ~1995! Even 7-8 years ago, the theivs realised that a VCR was worthless. However, my wife and I have a ton of Disney movies on VHS, and so we've recently plugged the VCR into the TV to watch them with our 2.5-yr-old daughter.

    Original Audio/Video Gear

    All of us that have a little age on us have sold, traded, or given away gear.
    Mostly because it just broke, wore out, or we wanted something newer and better.

    I’m curious how many of us still have a piece of our original gear (Assuming it is at least 10-15 years old).

    My first hi-fi system circa 1968 was a Lafayette 30WPC stereo amp feeding a pair of Lafayette 8” 2-way bookshelf speakers. The sources were a Lafayette LT-525T am/fm stereo Tuner and a Garrard belt drive turntable. Wasn’t a top of the line component system then but “rocked” out a lot better than the little portable record player or living room consoles that were so popular back then.

    All of the system has been sold, traded or given away except for the tuner that is still in use today after forty plus years.

    The old bookshelf speakers were given to my brother & still survive today, and seem to play ok (The woofers had a corrugated surround instead of foam which has probably saved them).

    I have no clue what ever became of the rest of the stuff because I lost track of the owners over the years.
