Thanks for starting this forum. I didn't know about the Capitol Audiofest, I'm sorry I'll have to wait until November 2017! Relatively recently I recapped, refoamed, and (sadly) replaced the tweeters in the AR-3a's I bought when I was in college. I'm currently repairing the AR-AU amp I bought at the same time, it went out just before the speakers were restored. (Bad luck, that.) I'm also looking around at speakers to go with my modern set-up after the amp is repaired and restored. No budget for super components, but I'm having a lot of fun with what I can afford.
