    Quality.

    Was looking at old Diamonds on eBay the other day. Tidy ones have held their value well.

    *Audiolab 6000CDT* SoncozSGD1 * Krell KSA100 mkII * JM Lab Electra 926 *

    Bargain? Ten full range drive units in the West Country. Vintage Eagle PA speakers that I'm fairly certain contain FR8 drivers, which were actually 8" full range Coral drivers. Very rare now and extremely good, better than the sought after Philips 9710M. Collect only. If these were local to me, I'd keep quiet and nab them for myself .

    My telefunkens drivers were used in a church array. Got 7 of 10" drivers still. Really good drivers and these look to be of similar quality

    Given that's the case, I've heard the best tape decks outperform some CDPs. Also, when applied to car audio, the better ones piss all over anything digital!
