Thanks Mikado !

They have very nice black grilles, making a face completely flat but because of my 2 cats I removed them. Cats love grilles.

Default New "old" speakers are home.

Hi Jerome’
It has been fun to watch your audio journey unfold.
I’m sure these are excellent sounding speakers. Here’s to many hours of enjoyable listening!

Tom, David...
Thanks a lot.
David: yes they actually give lots of bass. But most of all what is stunning with Altec drivers is the clarity and speed of the bass.

Hi Jérôme, nice looking speakers, congrats!
Was it the same man who produced your old speakers?

Ha, they remained in the AA family!

I do like the aesthetics for your current speakers more.
Enjoy them!
