Thanks!

they sound great!

I just tested them with the Infinity's, which are great for their size.

I now have to test a few different set-ups.

It seems, no matter how great or low cost the find, it leads to the potential to buy more equipment!

I am on my way now to a local vintage audio swap meet!

Congrats! That was a great score. =D> A friend of mine has a Citation 16? I think, 150 wpc and we did a side by side with my Adcom 5800 @ 250 wpc. I was very surprised at how well it did on my system, lots of good clean power, seemed to keep up with the Adcom just fine!
