Sunday Update.

A few bunch of speakers have left to excellent new homes in the past couple of weeks.

The Yamaha NS690s left for the north of the city on New Years Eve. They are fantastic speakers, among the best I've had here.

The latest JBL L26s left with the Avid 100s for a good home on Friday, to be driven by the Marantz 1060.

Update: I never told you about the Avids. Avid was a Rhode Island based speaker manufacturer in the 70s. It made products in the vein of, and competetive with Advent, AR, Rectilinear, EPI etc. The 100 is a well built 2 way, 8 inch, sealed system, with rubber woofer surrounds and phenolic ring tweeters. They sounded very nice, not as sweet and extended in the highs as EPI 100s, but nice.

I've been really enjoying the Sansui AU-888 (the Marantz 1152DC will be back in a day), driving the Mission 770 Freedom Vs or JBL L16s.

How do you let go of such great speakers? I myself would have a hard time parting with those nice hard to find speakers....
