I was wondering which would you'd preferr... the 70's 80's 90's...or 2000's is new technology ...wining? i know some love the older speakers...and tend to hold on to them for years....and some may agree or disagree that earlier speakers were better built ...am not that old but i remember ..brands like polk audio used to build really good speakers e.g the SDA/...SRS.. / Definitive Technology to the TL2000..
Infinity Speakers to with the MTM PRELUDE..and i could on and on ...you can add some of ur Favorite brands in to .....for me i love the 90's ...

2000s, IMO. While I love the more traditional underhung topology, I am a huge fan of Adire Audio's XBL^2 technology. And I think Scan Speak is making the best drivers it ever has. I dream of buying SS Illuminator stuff.. which is underhung, in fact. Great BL curve on those. I've also found my favorite tweeter yet being from the 2000s - the Vifa XT19. And I would like to hear the new CSS XBL^2 tweeter too.

Edit to note: My signature is more about electronics than speakers, for the record biggrin.gif I would love to own some of the larger Apogee ribbons for example.

"Vintage" is good for wine, not for A/V equipment.

I still use my Canton CT1000's I got in the 80's. I liked the sound better than the 6' Magnaplanar's I tried at the time.
