Couldn't figure out how to edit this old post, but I still wanted to update. The Phase Techs were the worst speakers I ever owned. I know the brand has a following. The OLAs are playing as I type. Remarkable bass and superb female vocal rendition. Can't believe the O3s are 20 years old, and that the IL60s still anchor my HT. Looks like I'm too old to upgrade and too old to care. Glad I bought some good stuff back when.1967 - AR4x
1972 - The Advent Loudspeaker (still in use everyday in my vintage system)
1989 - Phase Technology 730es towers
1994 - Infinity Overture 3s (still in use in living room stereo)
2000 - Infinity Interlude IL60 towers (current)
I completely forgot about my first steps into audio tinkering, which involved a friend and I each adding multiple mismatched raw drivers to our boom boxes with detachable speakers. We pretty much just got a bunch of old speaker wire and daisy chained them all together around our rooms. The speakers were salvaged from old radios, tvs, or cars, and probably sounded awful, but we were thrilled with our enginuity.I don't think I've posted in here yet...
My first speakers were Zenith Allegros that my dad picked up for me at a yard sale because he remembered them (or something very similar) from his youth. Those speakers lasted probably a good 10 years through high school and university, and even though I was about my stuff, they still took a beating. Over the years I removed their beat up glued-on grills and built a new removable set, did what I could to fix up the peeling bits of veneer, and built some matching stands to get them up off the ground.
After university I picked up a pair of Paradigm Mini Monitors and a CC-370 to use as the front stage. Several years later I added the Monitor 7s and moved the Mini Monitors to the back. Now after building a few subs and a rear surround, that's where I am.
Oh, and I haven't been able to part with the Allegros, they're just too close to my heart. I now have them wired as the B channel in our dining room.
Note: These aren't mine, but the best pic I could find online.
