I happened upon a Craigslist ad for some Celestion 300 speakers and wound up picking them up for $40 untested. Well ,they needed some work and I had to send the woofers off to Miller Sound, but for less than $240 they are up and running. I cannot recommend Miller highly enough. They're being pushed by a pair of Dynaco Mk III monoblocks. I had thought "how much better could they be than the NLAs?". Well, the answer turns out to be a lot. I keep thinking that I have reached a point of diminishing return with my cheapo stereo investments but keep being rewarded. Surely this is some kind of apex? I suppose I will be proven wrong again. I come from a background of riding fast motorcycles and there is a maxum about suspension "the best you've ridden is the best you know". Meaning you're constrained by your frame of reference. This sure has turned out to be the case here. These sound so beautiful, and they and the Dynamos are also just beautiful relics of industrial design. They are pleasure to be around, on or off. Thanks to those that helped me sort the Celestions and have put up with my know nothing posts about these and everything. My wife and I owe something to the Audiokarma community. So, I have joined.
