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

The rules that say all your channels need to be identical.

I don't think that is a rule, but a strong recommendation.

Hi. I have a pair of Wharfdale 8-inch full-range shelf/floor standing speakers. My father bought them about 30 years ago, and to this day, they still work OK. The enclosure is about 24x12x8. I think they are rated about 25-30 watts peak each.

Yes. I have a beautiful pair of B&W DM 3000's which I would never part with. I also have a pair of Tannoy SGM 10's (solid gold monitors). These would easily get my right arm instead. The Tannoys were purchased in 1990 in NYC for $750.00. My daughter took them to "goog will" two years ago without telling me. So I bought a replacement pair off ebay for $1500.00. The hi-fi dealer here has always carried B&W's so I have always compared the new models with the DM 3000's. Hey, they haven't come out with anything better yet. The diamond tweeters are a bunch of bull.

Have a hard time finding the appropriate speakers thread,but here goes.I've got a recent set of speakers RTI-A7 from Polk Audio.Of course,to complete a surround sound environment I need a few additional speakers.Since my big Polk speakers must do the bulk of the work,I guess that smaller additional speakers are the only thing I need to complete the surround sound.But what type are smaller speakers are necessary,eitherwhat we would refer as small shelf speakers or somewhat more performing speakers. And what price range would be recommended for each pair in order to get a satisfactory sound quality.
