    I've listened to an old pair of bookshelf's driven with an entry level Sony receiver. You can imagine how that sounded. Yup, this was a completely useless post. I'm just trying to catch ya, Juice!

    Yes i did,
    I heard them I a guys house, they were an older pair he bought in New york years ago.he loved them and still used them today.
    I listened to them, they were ok but nothing to get all excited about.Just nice older sounding speakers.
    My personal quest is to save to world of bad audio, one thread at a time.

    I don't know about those new 'tiny towers of power', but give me a good Walsh series speaker any day of the freakin week. Some consider them a little heavy on the low-end, a little lite up-top....

    But the demos I have had sing right on, esp on good vintage amps, eg, Marantz, Phase Linear, Gas....

    Definately in my top 10 vintage, must-have, speakers.....

    Check your lips at the door woman. Shake your hips like battleships. Yeah, all the white girls trip when I sing at Sunday service.

    The older Walsh series sound great. I've heard a few of these and some of the older 3-way. I haven't had an opportunity to listen to anything from thses guys in about 12yrs.

    I answered an add for a pair of Walsh 4XO's (maybe wrong number it was in 1987 or so) any way got them in the box new for 750.00 (hint: this was a steal) They sound great, had them on a Carver TFM-45 and they soaked up the power, the omni-directional sound was good, not what you are use to so it was different, had great lowend, I think they had a super tweeter to help on the topend?? anyway sold them and made some cash, I think this was the beginning of my buy/sell adiction.

    BTW I will say I thought they were way over priced for what you got.
    Dodd - Battery Preamp
    Monarchy Audio SE100 Delux - mono power amps
    Sony DVP-NS999ES - SACD player
    ADS 1230 - Polk SDA 2B
    DIY Stereo Subwoofer towers w/(4) 12 drivers each
    Crown K1 - Subwoofer amp
    Outlaw ICBM - crossover
    Beringher BFD - sub eq

    Where is the remote? Where is the $%#$% remote!

    I have a pair of OHM FRS5's in my bedroom. they are great sounding speakers. Very natural sounding and image extremely well!

    I will never get rid of them..and ohm still has replacement parts for them..so if anything happens..they can be fixed...

    I even have a trade in value with ohm if I ever decide to upgrade them...
    Peace sells, but who's buying?
