So there's another thread up regarding what new speakers would you buy if...? I'm just not familiar with the better new speaker's out there as I don't consider a trip to Best Buy in my best listening interest. And we just don't have the local mid fi shops around anymore. So let's take a trip back in time and identify a set or two that we heard and fell in love with but the sticker price was just too high then and may be as well now. My selection is the Altec 19's. Rich kid in my dorm had some and I'll never forget em!
