:wave: Howdy Markm,
Those Infinity Servo-Static sound like they were pretty special speakers, thanks for posting and sharing in this thread! If I may ask, How did them Infinity Servo-Static compare to your Magneplanars of today?
Hi,
My ears were a lot younger then, and I enjoyed all the frequency spectrum then allowed to me. Now, I seem to be missing some of the high end.

Anyway, the two speaker systems are like apples and oranges.
Different.

The servo-statics were full spectrum; I fully balanced the room, kept the sound pressure down as to not affect my hearing. I also was doing records, and had to de-noise some of the recordings. I enjoyed the full monty experience, (especially when my family was not at home).

The Magneplanars are 6ft dipoles with no real low end below 80hz, so I use the Infinity speakers to add some bass.
If you enjoy listening to piano and authentic jazz singers, the transparency of the Magneplanars is amazing.
Sounds as if the piano is in the room.

I use the other Infinity speakers in the room to get some good sound out of the TV and videos.

Hope that helps.

Coming over to "A-B" the systems, would be the ideal way to see the difference, except I no longer have anything to A-B. I'm sure there are newer and more advanced electo-statics on the market, but now I'm satisfied with the lighter weight Magneplanars for most of my music.

Infinity RSb - $480/pr (1978)
Infinity SM-65 - $280/pr (1995)
Infinity Video1 center - $190 (1995)
PE Dayton Audio Titanic III 15" 1kW sub(kit) - $560? (20??)

Couldn't afford to replace the RSb's now for equal SQ and the kit sub is a lot more.

That's a clean setup!
The 16's now Motion15 are great speakers for rears. That also the very definition if voice matching.
