I remember hearing them and a number of other speakers in that "class". Since that was my price range at the time.
It was 40 years ago. But one thing I DO remember is they were better than the other speakers in the "economy" level.
My friend had a smaller Marantz receiver and we were looking for speakers. He was going to buy those, I think??? but ended up spending a few more dollars and getting a set of AR. I think he still has those speakers 40 years later.
although the cheap Teledyne-era AR speakers of the same era (to wit, the AR-18 and AR-17) were fine sounding, unprepossessing cheap two-way sealed box speakers, too.
My opinion in those days (and still today) is that dollar for dollar the AR-18 was the best thing going. They were $65 a pop at that point (ca. 1977).
all the best,
Thanks for the info! Will let everyone soon know how they sound!
