    For now I have the 500a driving a pair of Philharmonic Audio Affordable Accuracy Monitors. They are full range bookshelf speakers. I recently acquired a pair of Infinity IL40s from the Interlude series. I suppose they qualify as vintage - they are old enough to vote! They are probably 17-18yo. I'm surprised at how much bass I get from the 500a. When I had them driving the Salk Song Towers a week ago I was amazed at how well they sounded with only 20wpc to drive them.

    I recently moved my AU-555A and TU-9500 into the bedroom and am using AR-5's with them, It's a nice combination.
    The G-8700DB in the livingroom is powering a pair of Dahlquist DQ-20's and a M&K SB-1A subwoofer.

    I am driving a set of Frazier Model 7's with a set of Pioneer CS-63DX's stacked on top with a Sansui G-8000 handling the power. It sounds like an odd couple, but sounds incredible.

    The Osborns have moved on, and I'm back to the Aesthet 1 Mk II large standmount speakers again. Such brilliant, brilliant speakers. They are less 'in your face' than the Osborns, with a very deep sound stage, but just as much detail overall.

    Sansui SR-212 & SC-3300 into a 1000X powering a pair of Acoustic Energy AE103's which replaced my Scandyna A25's after more years than I care to remember.

    I never thought anything would replace those Scandyna's but the the AE103's are superb, even more so at the price I stole them for direct from Acoustic Energy!
