Happy Birthday to....

Recommended Posts

My LaScalas!!

 

It just dawned on me that they were built (and bought by me) in 1979 so this is their 40th year!!

 

Original drivers, original diaphragms ALK ES crossovers.

 

I'm here to tell you....  I don't know that there is a single thing in this house that goes back with me as far, other than perhaps the bones in my body.

Wonder if their bones ache as much as mine sometimes do...

Not to hijack a thread, (well, it is called Happy Birthday to....)

 

You made me realize I missed the 50th anniversary of my Klipschorns, which are 68's.  Not totally stock, though, so does that still count?

I would think they held up much better than you over those 40 years, plus they can sing better than you, I think they have you beat, especially in another 40 years.

Ya know....  if you could hear me....  you would have noticed that I was literally giggling as I read that.  Were my wife here, I would have read it to her, looked at her with a bit of a defeated, dry look on my face and just said "BOOM" as you scored a point on me!

 

Touche' Sir!!

I can say that because being older than you, I would guess, most everything held up better than me over the last 40 years. It was just a guess about your singing.

Nothing wrong with that.  I've been enjoying a nice Gascogne with twist offs lately.  My forte II's are 10 years younger than your LaScalas, birthday not until the fall.  Oh, but I bought a turntable in '79, and it is still in use...

Beautiful speakers. Makes me want to get up off my wallet. Problem is, I'm not too sure you can buy that quality veneer on a  pair of Klipsch speakers anymore.
