    Yes, the mk1's were fuse protected and the mk2's had the proprietary B &W overload protection. Visually, the MK 1's were stunning with brushed steel...

    If you read my posts carefully, you'll see I presume nothing. I merely pointed out that there can be an issue and that it can occur over a long...

    The problem with the hardening of the surrounds on many of the old Spendor speakers is a well known one - I'm surprised you're not aware of this. Of...
