Bottom Line:   
These served as my main loudspeakers for 10 years. Gordon Holt of "Stereophile" rated them as class C--I think.
Somewhat forward sound emphasized midrange and vocals and brass. I like this coloration, but it is, after all, a coloration. Violins, ok. Treble somewhat soft. Transparency, not up to the best of todays, but not bad for the 80's. Able to play very loud. I used them with the Adcom gfa 555 II and they cranked pretty well, and I never clipped the amp.

Woofers had foam surrounds so may be in for some rot. Mine never went, but it may just be a matter of time.

I think these were pretty inexpensive when new. Probably should go for $200 or less used. They would be a good starter speaker if they were in excellent condition.

I sold mine to a friend and he is quite pleased with them.

NAD 208 Question ?

I noticed some slightly humming sound in the woofer, when it's connected to the 208 and there is nothing else on the amp inputs, just the amp pluged in the outlet, no preamp or any jacks, I know that is very normal to hear a hiss in some amplifiers, but does the 208 puts out a quiet humming ??, or i ...
