    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 :)

    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.

    I STILL remember a summer afternoon about 1974 when I visited the local Springfield VA "Audio Specialists (AtlantisSound) store and heard the 1000's for the first time. They were running the original Phase Linear 700 with them. Lucky Man sounded superb. I also brought some pipe organ LP's and Harry Nilsson's Jump Into the Fire.

    Everyone's ears are different, my guess is that everyone who is intimately familiar with both would not come to the same conclusion. Head down the Pittsburgh area, happy to have you hear my Dunlavys, maybe get my friend to show off his 'Black Knights'.

    I'll just have a pair of these:

    And yes, they are vintage now because they've been discontinued for quite a while...
