    I think if I could choose a 'vintage' set of speakers to try I'd like to try the Duntech Sovereign 2001 - actually I'd love to have this same set up with the Krell MDA500 as seen here...
    Lovely system. Kudos to this lucky fellow... If he's an AK'er.. :thumbsup::trebon::rockon:

    "How it's Made" showed how they make these speakers.

    A pair of lovingly rebuilt and tweaked Crown ES-224's.

    You mean like these? Ultra-rare blond cabs plus the SEQ box as well. These came from less than 50 miles from you and aren't much farther away today. 409.jpg

    I never knew anything about those! I saw this picture and wondered how these would sound. Thank's for telling me!

    JBL 4350's. No idea where I'd put them at the moment though. A friend has a pair and he got them dirt cheap in mint condition.

    Someone here is bound to hear these someday, perhaps on Holy Grail Day.

    That is an early LV1020. I've never seen one with an eared woofer basket only round ones.

    I've heard these ~4-5X at shows. Each time I walked away thinking how bad my own system sucked. Holographic is the only word to describe them.

    I guess if money was no object I could get them all then decide what to keep.

    I have the H/K 700 series stack if you want to get the full American Psycho theme going... it sounds pretty good actually :)

    Nice. I am currently running 500wpc Citation 16M monoblock amps on my Epi 1000M. :thumbsup:

    OK, you win... my H/K is feeding a pair of Rectilinears and the biggest EPIs I have (now, I used to have some big Genesis) are M100s.
