That was my first system. A friend of my dad's built one in our basement when I was in high school, and gave it to me when he went to stereo. Had an 8" Electro-Voice Wolverine LS-8. I built a SE EL-84 amp for it, and had the cheapest Garrard turntable. Sounded really great to me!
First record was Mahler #3, which I checked out of the library and played on this system.
A beautifully made, cheap (then and even still today) and decent sounding "extended range" loudspeaker.
I am quite biased, however, having literally grown up with LS-12s in my parents' house.
Still like the LS-8 best of the trio, tho'.
all the best,
I currently use an LS-8 for my center channel HT setup. Holds its own quite well. I also have a couple of the MC-12 drivers in storage, and hope to use them again someday. They are the earlier ones with the alnico magnets. I bought them new around 1970 for about $23.00 each! Imagine that price for a very well made 12 inch driver with a cast frame and alnico magnet.
