    You might consider dusting and running the vacuum before posting pics.

    Perhaps he didn't own it. Maybe he saw it at an estate sale and just took a picture of it. I know when I go to an estate sale, I rarely take along my Dyson. Sometimes...but not often. lol

    Hey, I just saw his similar post in another section where he said he bought these speakers over 20 years ago. You are absolutely right! He should have cleaned them up a bit.

    Hey, priorities man! Dusty speakers still sound good!

    Actually I'm weird about keeping my gear looking good. I absolutely HAVE to dust my speakers, all components, and what parts of my rack I can with a soft microfiber towel before I use my system. It's like a routine that I have.

    Same here, although I only dust when it’s necessary, and there are levels of necessity for me. If it is my audio gear, I probably dust once a week or so. If it’s my desk, 2-3 weeks. So on and so forth until you get to random Knick knacks, which can be anywhere from a month to a year. :lol:
    Not Tom, or Trey, or Jim
    Main setup:
    Speakers are one of three, Mission Freedom 770 IV’s, Polk LSi25’s, or Polk SDA-CRS (stock XO, SL2000’s, Blade/Blade model). Electronics are as follows: for the LSi’s and SDA’s, a Technics SU-v75 acting as a phono preamp, into a Yamaha RX-v665, into a Crown XLi800 power amplifier. For the Missions, I have a Lafayette LR-1100. Turntable is a Technics SL-3200, with a Shure M97xE. Cables are generic/soon to be replaced garbage.
    An old post I found on AK, from 2013.
    I've always thought the goal of high end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    Dust on the cones alters the T-S parameters.

    Ha! I have to actually vacuum my Martin Logan panels every 2 months, makes my back hurt, up and down. dusty ML's sound like crap. We all have to bow to the audio gods every now and then to get what we want!?!
