    i just received a call from a flipper I know who got his hands on a Snell Type B in excellent shape. I know nothing about these. Any info would be welcome.

    I just recently found a pair of B Minors and can tell you they are the least compromised speaker I've ever owned in 25 years of audiophilia. I would imagine the B's are amazing. Now I just need to find an amp that does them justice:)

    Only speaker in the last 6 years that I haven't grown tired of and flipped. Amazing imaging and one of the only speakers I've heard with sub 20 hz low frequency extension that doesn't sound boomy and unrealistic. Kevin Voecks did a masterful job on the B minor. The Stereophile review, not easy to find, is worth the read.

    The big Snells seem to be quite rare. Very intrigued by them. With the Bs Stereophile keeps mentioning the "slow, ponderous bass" and "somewhat restricted image depth" lol. And "the equivalent of a Telarc recording--intially very impressive, but ultimately unsatisfying." Still wanna hear them though!
