  1. To whom? Model and era dependent and even then it's apples to oranges for the most part Note I said MOST, NOT all 'ALTEC' covers a LOT of ground Plenty to read about the history of the company and it's products on-line The company that Jim Lansing started? Their peak period systems like the commercial VOTTs? There's no comparing the two, only thing close would be a Klipschorn ALTEC no longer exists except in name only - a handful of former employees were keeping the torch alive for a while offering service, repair and even some new drivers based on the originals (and made in the U.S.A.) but last I heard that was coming to a sad close as well
  2. No cranky hear dude, I explained my comments based on my own pair of verticals and how the deal went down I don't buy base solely on an ad anymore and even with an aural audition - especially a crummy one (again, lesson(s) learned the hard way) Just sharing my experience is all - the eyes can deceive
  3. I don't how in the heck people manage(d) to blow woofers in Cornwalls Tweeters OK, but woofers?
  4. You don't know that Not from that crummy weird ad (and offing them after just 3 months?) Unless you have seen them Have you seen them?
  5. Whole lot of useless rambling in that ad and not a lot of specifics about the actual pair he is selling I would insist on having him remove both backs for inspection if things get that far I had a pair of Walnut verticals (1971), similar deal and only found out after I got 'em home one of them had a replacement woofer Genuine Klipsch (but not a cosmetic/magnet match) and an appropriate substitute but still................... .............you get the point
  6. Are you his attorney? I would prefer to hear DoubleJ's own answer rather than your speculation I doubt, very seriously, that when those badges were still readily available from Hope, that anyone in their right mind was paying $50 to $100 the pair Today of course is another story
  7. Thank you for a clean deal and trust Craig

    I owned, and stupidly sold, a pristine 2220B The 2220B is one of the best sounding Simi Valley Marantzs there ever was, including the big boys If your 2220 (I never owned that incarnation) is 1/2 as good it'll better 75% of what's out there today I owned many of the '22xx' series, including the cult faves and sold them all off eventually (long story) That 2220B is the only one I still miss
  9. Thank you for a nice clean deal I'm glad/hope you are happy Best regards Craig
  10. Don't get any point and am unable to find any meaning in the post directly above I can tell with certainty you have very little, if any at all, hands on experience with any of the classic Technics line-up
