View Full Version : McIntosh XD-717

I have JBL Century L100s that I bought new in the 70s. Love them but a bit unsettled in the lower bass. Wife didn't want them in livingroom so I loaned them to my older son and bought Infinity Micro SL which is two satelites and a subwoofer with 2 6-1/2 woofers. Ok but a bit lacking bass. My youngest son is buying a couple Carver AL3s and offered to give me his McIntosh XD-717s which are in mint condition. I will listen to them this weekend. As I'm stuck at home most of the time due to a lousy battle with cancer my wife said I can get better and bigger speakers! Any input on the differences between the JBLs and the Macs greatly appreciated. Hoping they will have a tighter bass.
