I love the L-100s. Is your grille burnt orange?

Sonnie ,cool write up in Stereo Review.That was a serious HT system especially for the day.I bet 18" sub woofers were not very common although I think Snell produced one back then.The Snell B's,B minors and C's were all very good speakers.And of course the Mac stuff is built
to a very hi standard.
I remember reading about some 18" JBL home subs back in the day. I wanted one quite badly but it was way to expensive for me. It was mactched to some 4 ways with a 12" woofer. They were sort of pyramid shaped.

Re: Vintage Stereo Gear

Yes, the 24" Hartely subwoofer is the one used in Mark Levinson's
HQD system. Here is another picture with the Hartely subwoofer
mounted in my wall many years ago.

Ok, who is still seduced by vintage audio? There are quite a few followers of the 1970s classics. Double Large Advents anyone?
Back in the day, when The Advent Loundspeaker (they didn't have the "larger" Advent because that was the only model) was just release I bought a pair to mate with a Dynaco SCA-80 integrated amp, Thorens TD150 turntable, and Koss Pro4aa headphones. It was my first system after my little all-in-one portable shelf unit w/ flip down turntable, and the sound wowed me. Shortly after, I read the review on double advents in Stereophile (when it was a rag with no advertising) and purchase another pair, and all I can say is double wow, a huge difference. That started my journey down the road to audiophile equipment.

You know what was funny, I bought 16 ga lamp cord for speaker wire and built short speaker stands to get the double Advents off the floor 3.5" (thickness of 2x4 speaker base), because my ears told me it sounded better than 20 ga. zip cord speaker wire (common in the day) and speakers on the floor (too boomy).

Re: Vintage Stereo Gear

Between 1978 and 1982 I gradually built up my first decent system consisting of a pair of Philips 3-way 70 Litre Hifi speakers, Sansui 4900Z Receiver, Technics SL-D303 Direct Drive Turntable and Philips GP-412 Cartridge/Stylus.

Here's the interesting bit: The Turntable is still in my system (1 drop of oil every year, and the control IC replaced about 3 years ago); The GP-412 cartridge still gets a run occasionally; The Sansui Receiver is still the core of my best mate's Hifi system; And the 1" Dome tweeters from those Philips speakers are still in use in my DIY Front Mains!
