    Do these count?





    (RAM 150s - the stars of my "Cheap As Chips" system which you'll be able to hear at Scalford. )

    And my main lovelies - Spendor SP1's - early 80s so probably not "vintage" as such...

    I know, I know... Perhaps I'll swap for a week or two and see - to be honest, there's not a massive difference between them... (IMO - YMMV! )

    Here's my EMI 319's, 1960's vintage, in open baffle configuration.

    very good imho Ali, well I like them anyway. They excel with vinyl, as you'd expect, but digital is good also.

    OB seems to suit them, at least I prefer this set up to cabinets. I run a sub to fill the bass. I've got 3 pairs of 319's now - one day I'll get a pair measured and build some T-Line floorstander cabinets.

    You could try an OB line array, three per side?

    Yeah, I haven't thought of that - what, 3 drivers on 1 baffle per side? Not sure I got the room for that tbh

    Wish I had 3 pairs of these:

    Yeah, make the baffle thinner but taller. If you could find a fourth pair of drivers, you could series/parallel them. Would sound pretty good I reckon.
