Wow - that’s an original Phillips Pronto remote on the top of that baby.

The AMT-5's were the first hi-end purchase that led to the rest with the ESS 100 being a good sounding match with the Heils.

Sounded awful good to me at the time.

Hi Bob - Fellow Cornellian (graduated in '80's) - a Yamaha RX-500, Boston Acoustic Speakers, and a Magnavox CDB-650 CD player - shortly after graduating and getting my first job. I didn't like working too much so went to grad school but kept the gear for 10+ years. Good times.

Exactly, but branded Marantz, and with a battery pack that still works today, after 21 years and still recharges...

I gave up on my Prontos when they started to fail after years of continuous use. A unique product I do miss.
