Picked up a pair of ADS Model 300 speakers for $30 at a garage sale last weekend, white with metal cabinets. Finally hooked them up out on the three season porch today. Wow, what great little speakers! They blow the Minimus Sevens away, as anticipated. :thmbsp: They sound a lot like the ADS L-520s I used to have but shouldn't have sold. Small, but they still have that signature ADS sound.... Just for the heck of it I might hook them up to the Yamaha CA-1010 in the main system.

Yep, great small speakers. I have a set in teak or walnut and they may be the only ones I'll truly never sell as their small size and big sound makes them indispensable.

Congrats on the find!!

Thanks, everyone! After further listening , I am even more impressed. Maybe the best small speakers I've ever heard. Andyman, you're right, they sound so much bigger than their size. If you closed your eyes, you'd think you were listening to much larger speakers. The ADS 300 will be our permanent speakers on the porch.

Great score on some excellent speakers! Thanks! Judging from your signature, you're someone who knows his ADS.:D You've got some nice ones listed there.

Great speakers. I've got a pair of 200Cs and the similar powered 2002s and both really do sound better than the Minimus 7s, even after modding the 7s.
