You're right about Bose. Useful for a casual listening thing but not sitting back and appreciating sound quality.
    Acoustic research were quality speakers back in the day and have stood the test of time, though because of there age may need some sprucing up if you source a pair on eBay like I did.
    So many vintage speakers around though there s no end of possibilities. Good luck in your hunt

    If it's deep, solid bass you're after, you could do worse than look at the TDL transmission line speakers that are for sale in our Private Exhibitions section. I think they may well give you what you seek, if still available.

    Enjoy the forum,
    Thanks for the recommendation Geoff I'm sure my TDLs would be a great match for the Exposure and the price is such a bargain that they could be moved on quickly without loss if they didn't work out.

    Appreciate it's a bit of a trek down the M1 but I'm not far from the M25 on the north side so it could be worse. A no pressure demo with tea and biscuits is more than welcome, assuming they don't sell in the meanwhile.
