I have found over many years of many speakers and houses that best speaker is on a concrete floor.Pure sound dead without resonance like on a main floor wood framed home. I do run full range larger Pro Tannoy 15 inch drivers (times 4sometimes)but they are not intended to play to college kid levels. ...

The Mcintosh gear deserves Tannoy.I definitely prefer the sound of vintage Tannoy over newer Turnberry and the like.Too much attention paid to esthetics and eye candy.Much more valur for the dollar with older Tannoy Ardens,Monitor Golds and similar.I have SRM15X Super Red Monitors and love them. I a...

Restore a vintage Kenwood 700c-a world class winner at any price point and you will never want an upgrade.If you can find one.
Build quality that shames the best.
Newer = not always better.

I have had a flood of USA interest in buying my items clearly advertised on CAM,Not for sale in USA,local Cnadian shipping only. Somehow this missed all the American buyers with dollar strong,-please read ads carefully! I prefer a local sale,shipping if buyer is willing and it is so much easier for ...

Phillips Forester tweeters?
Sometimes little known brands from 70's will surprise you.Radian Research for example is similar to your speakers and sound fan dam tastic but only those in the know know!

Gotta love the 80's!

Milan tries to sell locally but he prefers to bend people over the table on *BAY,and asking over the moon prices.His gear is all over the vintage stereo category.I believe he works with his sons too. I have also had a friend that dealt with him to buy my friends Tannoy speakers,and when his back was...
