    So those $5.00 RCA 40-5016's I bought today are working out to be mighty good speakers. They way satisfy my expectations and are giving me that retro sound I've been craving. I've got them right up in my face. The sound stage is really, really sweet. The build quality feels and looks like my Polk Monitor 60 SII's...this was $5.00 so well spent!

    C2rice, you get my vote for 'Best Laugh In A While.' I got a major 'visual' to go with the "turd in the punch bowl" line.
    Er...yeah...um...well, that ain't good. :confused:

    Agreed Ted. I never saw a mean spirited post on this thread ever. Maybe a poorly worded one or two, and they were both my posts, so whatever.

    Thank you! Those old paper cone drivers (especially the tweeters) sounded OK but a little harsh - nothing you'd want to listen to for an extended period of time.
    The cabinets are pretty nice, though... large well made towers, real walnut veneer, etc. so I'm hopeful my modest upgrades will breath some new life into them

    Erm, yeah. This may have been one purchase too many. Some great stuff in here, though, like this one:

    I'm very surprised to find that I'm still as sad as I am about Chris Cornell's death (sad might not be the right word but I'm not sure what is). I wasn't a raving fan or anything, but I did like his stuff and was a fan of his voice and vocal style. I loaded up my ipad with his stuff (Soundgarden, Audioslave, Temple of the Dog, and solo) last night and was listening on headphones when I fell asleep. When I came upstairs to work on my desktop I felt compelled to load my winamp playlist with Cornell FLACs. Listening to Badmotorfinger now.

    To say that these Radio Shack/RCA 40-5016's are impressing is an understatement. I've never had an audiophiles ear or budget for that matter, but I know what I like, and I'm totally digging these...can't wait to hear me some ELP on these.

    It's also available on ROCKIN' THE RHINE from a 1972 show in West Germany. I also have a live version from DICK'S PICKS Vol 16 from a Nov. 1969 show.
