The oldest parts are from the 1940's and the newest parts are from 2005.

Thanks. We are moving in a few weeks and the new HT space will not have a view, but then again I won't have to worry about light control either!

I don't have a picture of them, but I still have a pair of Yamaha NS-690 III's and My parents are still using their Yamaha NS-1000M speakers. Anyway, mine look just like these:

Sorry Raymond, I have not visited this thread in a while. The NS1000M are more exacting a speaker. In other words, good source in, nice sound. Poor source in, not so good. Very crisp clean on the upper end. The 690's are similar, but a little more mellow.

Found these at a flea market in San Antonio. The one on the bottom is an SP-8 from Grafyx by August Systems and I am not really sure what the one on top is.

Seems similar to the Zenith "Circle of Sound" circular speakers. It has no branding on them whatsoever. Bought both pair for $30. The SP-8's sound nice. The little square ones not so good. Bought them really for the uniqueness of the cabinet and driver configuration.

Any ideas what they could be?

MY NS -1000 still sound great, the 690's are close but don't have the detail of the 1000's.
