    Not a bad price. Interesting use of some Bose 901 stands.

    Not bad Altecs, but not great Altecs either.
    They do look to be in nice shape, though.

    One should be able to find a functional pair of A7s for a kilobuck if one is patient.

    Back in the 70's I had a friend that had A7's driven by a Macintosh tube amp in a rediculously small room. It was awesome.

    Looks to me that those are in a ridiculously small room. Talk about near field listening.

    I underestimate(d) these. Probably 1000 worth of fun there -- empathetic amplification is key, though :)
