The surrounds were shot. If you replace them get originals there is a guy on E bay in Florida that sells them. Also replaced the caps. Both sound really nice. The 70s are good for a small room since you can put them next to the wall.
Maybe you get lucky at Thrift's once in awhile!!
Good score - thanks for heads up on surrounds from Florida.
These, as the picture above shows, are absolutely mint. They likely will need surrounds at some point but for now they look and perform flawlessly - according to this fellow.
I will be auditioning them likely next week - as stated he has $120 into them and is willing to sell them to me for $110. He is not advertising them but knows that with all he has in his
collection a little purge occasionally is a good thing - for his wife!!! …and to find more gear.
He is always adding and on the prowl. He admits to being addicted to the hunt. Nobody here understands that right??
We'll see where this goes - at $110 it's still a premium price but these are pristine and extremely
hard to find in this condition. If I love the sound - as I did with the A100's I heard once - then I just might purchase them for the "cave".
