Favorite purchase source: On line sellers, ebay,, J & R, MonoPrice.

My focus is now on room treatment, equalization, tweeking. I am extremely happy with my Altec Model 19 speakers. To my ears very hard to beat for any money. The other type of speaker I really like is Martin Logan electrostatic speakers. Also for near field speakers the Heil top end of the Emotiva Pro Airmotive line of speakers are impressive. Now that the patents have expired on the Heil tweeter I think we will see many more Mfg move to this tweeter as ML, Adams, and Emotiva have already done.

*Equipment roster is subject to change without notice.
