My Cerwin Vega s-1 i bought new in 1979
For this exercise I'm thinking in terms of future downsizing necessity, so size matters, inversely.
Go: DQ-10's/DW-1 , NHT SuperOne's, SuperTwos', SuperCenter, SubOne, Madisound Kanspea's, & Allison AL-110's
Stay: B&O M70's (Since new in '76)
(But I'm keeping all my head phones)
Those B&O M70's look elegant. I've wondered what was underneath.
I would love to hear them.
Those are the IRS.
But look at this... I'm confused as usual..lol
Those are not Infinity IRS's.
Ahh ha...I see now!
Your link is a story about the RS-1 while the earlier picture is of the IRS. They vary considerably in the number of drivers and size.
Since I've only recently had a house, instead of a townhouse or room, my speakers have been for more modest. I'll keep the KEF 104aB's since I racapped them last year. I'll give up the JBL 4312's.
*IF* we could only HAVE ONE set of speakers with great matching power amps and crossovers......
I'd want a pair of Crown ES224's. Tubes on top, my PSA-2 on the bottom.
KEF's big studio monitors.
Easy, since I'm down to two pairs.
Go - KEF 103.2's - very good speakers, but not 107's
Stay - KEF 107's - I like that these can fit essentially anywhere a stand-mounted monitor-type speaker could go...they're really not all that large for the amount of sound they can put out! So these will likely stay with me for good...unless I get upgrade-itis...which at this point seems incurable, lol!
(Wish I still had - Quad 57's)
My modded Speakerlab K's for sure !!!
Out of everything I own I would keep the Allison Twos, they do everything very well.
Yeah I can only wish. Doghouse isn't that big.
My now two pairs of KLH Model six speakers and maybe the SPICA's.
Hey me too!
Hahahaha! I saw this and was sure that the relative proportions could not be right; the IRS Vs were too big, and the RS1s were too small. But then I measured the pix, and you know — this is an excellent comparison. They really are that different!!!
P.S. I have a pair of RS1s, a pair of Infinity Modulus Satellites (1990) with an NHT SW2/MA-1 subwoofer system, a pair of B&W Matrix 801s, and a pair of Chartwell BBC LS3/5As bi-amped with KEF B200 woofers in a three tube transmission line. And as strange as it may seem, I really don’t know which pair I would keep. They all have their own unique positive characteristics (and failings).
Your room's prettier (as are your cabinets) -- but it looks like we have close to the same color blue walls!
Thanks! I still love the naked looks yours have. My color is Behr tidal I think?
I chose the color because of your room and Art Dudley's. I'll cop to that.
I'd love to see those got any pics?
If forced to choose just one pair, it would be my Infinity RS-IIb's. But I would really hate to get rid of my Infinity Modulus/Genesis G928 speaker system, so I'm going to cheat and keep two systems.
