Yep...I've been a music addict since the 70's...that's where the Kenwood and Technics came in...all I could afford at the time...still have the original integrated amp and tuner with speakers hooked up I bought in 1978...can't stand to change it...sounds sweet if only 40 watts...my other stuff is in a bedroom ( yea, it's a tight fit)...tried to upload pics, but files too big...will try later with less pixels.

Kingman, welcome and get ready!! There's gonna be snide, but good natured comments about your choice of a certain brand of speakers. I think it's like a tribalistic bonding ritual among stereo freaks to attack any and all things Bose! BTW, I've got two very low mileage seriesV available at an extremely reasonable price!! :lol: That's a shitload of nice equipment you've amassed! :) Geoff

yea, I know...Had a couple of DQ-10's but blew them up with the amps...can some one recommend some speakers under $1000 that will be accurate with this set up? Thanks! TFM -35 bi-amped.

Think Amazings! AL-IIIs can be had for under a grand. So can some of the bigger ones, but they' don't travel well.

I purchased these MB Quart Alexxa S-One's and at first I was disappointed in the bass. Now after a month plus the woofers have burned in and bass is starting to sound Great! The price is why over what you mentioned but let me explain; The adds say "each". When I called Maxxsonics (parent company of MB Quart) looking for a dealer location, there was none in Oregon. I was able to purchase these "direct" from the company for $700.00 each (Piano Black) or you could get the White for $600.00 each. The shipping was only $75.00! After she told me this I decided to go the extra few hundred and order, could not pass this up. Good luck in your decision. Late

Kman, I switched from those that shall not be named, to Polk SDAs of various series, the SRSIIs are incredible (to my ears anyway!) but somewhat rare. A good model that usually goes for under $500-$600 is the SDA1-C, no bi-amp capabilities though. Sometimes SRS models are at, or just a little over $1000

These are tasty looking :D

Thanks TFM-45...I'm looking at a pair of Polk RTiA7's. Anyone heard anything about these.?..the specs say they can be bi-amped and they look pretty good. Thanks to all for their replies.

I'm sure Jesse (F1nut) will have something to say about those Polks. I never learned to Polka :D
