Thanks for the input so far. I should have prefaced with two things:

First, I am on a slight budget ($100 or less)

And I'm looking for vintage stuff. I have been questing for some Pioneer HPM-100s or JBL L100s. I think they look cool :music:

I just saw these, wasn't sure if they were decent or not.

Thanks for the help, I'll be passing. Keeping my eyes peeled on craigslist.

The general response here would most likely be pass judging from similar items. These speakers look to be part of a rack system from the 80's or early 90's. Usually rack system speakers are cheaply made with thin particle board, small woofer magnets and a bare bones almost non-existant crossover. This is not just LXI but also the bigger brands like Pioneer, Technics that was bundle into a system.

Excellent, I did not know that. What exactly is a "rack" system? Is that where you got everything in a bundle?

:yes: Yep, they will mostly look like the one in this link. Often very low grade mass consumer electronics. STAY AWAY. If you are patient for $100 you can assemble quite a nice system. Look on Craigslist, Goodwill, etc. If in doubt ask here on Audiokarma in the Dollars and Sense board of course! Happy Hunting! :thmbsp:

Yeah. They tend to have the turntable on top, equalizer, radio, pizza oven, 5-CD changer, dual cassette deck, with the speakers flanking the sides.

For 100.00 you should be able to find a decent pair of Large Advents. Just make sure the foam surrounds are good. If not, this adds another 25.00 to fix, if you do yourself.

I try to do everything myself, cars, house, etc. I don't know much about electronics, but like everything in life, you don't learn unless you "do".

I am going to keep looking for the Pioneer HPM-100s. Thank you for your help.

For $100, you can find many good speakers to choose from. The Realistic Nova series, 6, 7B, 8B, Optimus 1B, Large Advents, KEF C40 and many other speakers to choose from.
