Default Re: Do you own (and use) any Vintage speakers

I have and use daily a pair of ESS AMT10B speakers that I obtained at a tag sale about 8 years ago. They had been "stored" in a garage for over a decade and needed refoaming of the woofers and passive radiators. One of them actually had the remains of a squirrel's nest inside. The air motion transformer tweeters were intact, which is what matters most. I refoamed them and they have been in constant use ever since in one of my two main systems. They outperform every speaker system I have ever owned, including full range electrostatics and a pair of Magnaplanar SMGa's with subwoofer supplement. The air motion transformer tweeter was and remains one of the few true audio breakthroughs.
