"Sony APM-22ES speakers"
Sony APM-22ES Bought them in 1984 influenced by Alvin Gold -hi-fi reviewer and "golden ear " in hifi choice mag. He gave them a "best buy " commenting on the "near electrostatic" tweeters , I have had no reason to dispute that judgement as I am still using them , very much under appreciated . Beware ! later models of the same ilk had cheaper (inferior ) tweeters . More

"Reliable old friend"
Denon DRA-825R Great sound. This 30+ year old receiver ably powered my SDA-1s until fizzling out a few days ago. Wish I could replace it. I'm now using an X3600H to power the same speakers. The X3600H has excellent features for network and bluetooth connectivity - Great tech! ...not sure if I'll ever make use of the full 9.2 or 7.1.4 capabilities. I had no complaints about the 825RA.

"Superbly Detailed Speakers"
Monitor Audio MA9 Monitor Audio MA9's from 1982 or there about Positives:wonderful soundstage and instrument separation, excellent clarity really brings out the fine details in the Music Negatives: Tweeter can be a bit shrill on already treble heavy Music and some female vocals which is slightly fatiguing however this only an occasional Issue for me, I think possibly experimenting with different speaker cable might solve this problem I am currently using Lin...

"Good speakers don't age!"
Mission 760i Wear and tear aside - as that's easily fixable and should readily be embraced. The age of a speaker is not a consideration, it's either a good speaker or not so good speaker! When buying, listen with your ears, not your eyes. Take some time out and fortify your mind! More

"Delta 30.2 -Under rated speaker"
Wharfedale Delta 30.2 This cheap looking speaker can deliver exceptional good sound for wide range - from bass to high tweeter note with clear separation. I found the speaker easy to drive with most amplifier. In comparison with my other 4 pairs of different hi end speakers, this Delta 30.2 (6-in paper cone for mid range) delivers clear sound and in particular the tweeter that gives very clear distinctive sound. Great value for a small price. More

"buon diffusore se ben posizionato (Good speaker if well positioned)"
Technics SB-HD81 partiamo dal presupposto che ogni altoparlante da una resa diversa in base a dove si posiziona.a che tipo di amplificazione si utilizza eccetera. questi diffusori soffrono particolarmente la vicinanza alle pareti posteriori.le basse frequenze si enfatizzano troppo,e le medioalte passano in secondo piano. sconsiglio di utilizzarle in librerie,o loculi chiusi.hanno bisogno di aria attorno. discorso diverso se si posizionano distanti dalla par...

Google Translation: We assume that each speaker gives a different performance based on where it is positioned, what type of amplification is used, etc. These speakers suffer particularly the proximity to the rear walls. The low frequencies are emphasized too much and the mid-high ones go into the background. I do not recommend using them in bookstores, or closed niches. They need air around them. Different sound if they are positioned far from the rear wall: t... More

"Arcam Alpha 3"
Arcam Alpha 3  Integrated Amplifier Have used this unit now for thirty years with a pair of Paradigm Compact Monitor speakers (same age). A couple of years ago a capacitor of some type was replaced because it was overheating but that's it as far as repairs or anything like that goes. The only time it's ever been in the shop. Have never used a turntable. Am using an Audiolab 8200CD CD player with it for 4 years now, I think this is the third CD player. I don't understand all the bad... More

"Denon PMA-250SE"
Denon PMA-250SE This little amp, 2x30 Watts/c at 8 ohms and 2x50 Watts/c at 4 Ohms is surprisingly powerful and drives my Dali Spektor 2 speakers with rated sensitivity of 84.5 db with no stress and goes very loud. The sound is clear, transparent, neutral and very detailed. Absolute gem. More

"Dry heavy weights"
Tannoy Revolution R3 Reviewed these Tannoy Revolution R3 speakers together with Dynaudio Audience 122 speakers in a hifi store when new back in the day. I was impressed by these more than the Dynaudio's because of their neutrality an weight. The really low clean bass sounds perfectly integrated. Friend of mine bought the Dynaudio speakers, because they are a bit more present in de mids and highs and the bass is more punchy. I went and bought these a few years later s... More
