I am new to the forum, and to speakers in general, ( i have a basic knowledge at least though). I do know enough about speakers to spot a great deal when i see one. Yesterday i was picking through a rundown thriftshop to find a pair of old boston A60 speakers, in pretty good condition. the foam surroundings are torn but i have already ordered a repair kit for 20 bucks. But the good thig about this deal is that when i asked the woman at the desk about the price she shrugged and said "those old things? how about $3 dollars each?" i said "ill take em!" so now i have to wait for the repar kit to come to hear them, i turned the better of the two on at low volume, and it sounded fine, so i dont think theres anything wrong with them. now i just have to get a good cd player and receiver for them, and maybe add some more speakers. Since technically these are my first nice home theater speakers (im 17) i guess i can call this my first system. i have the klipsch promedia 2.1 with my computer. but i really wanted some nice bookshelf speakers. But the real point of this post is to ask for advice. i want to start building and guying speakers for my first, really nice home theater system. i like these bostons but my favorite has always been klipsch. so if anyone can reccomend some good speakers, discontinued, refurb whatever, i would apreciate it. also a point in the right direction for a good CD player. I was checkin out onkyo for my first nice player, but some pro advice would be nice. Thanks in advance.
