I stumbled in here while looking for information on Zenith Allegro speakers, and decided to stay awhile. Greetings from Houston, y'all.

Welcome. It's nice to have you here. Greetings from Dallas. A Marantz 5420, huh? I used to have one of those. They were impressive.

Hi Bill, welcome to the forum. When I was a teenager we had a pair of those Zenith speakers, I remember being surprised by the heavy build of them but really don't remember the sound and my reference back then I'm sure is quite different than now any way. :)

Welcome to AR Bill!
I was in Houston just last night for an hour or so changing flights.

I also have a pair of Model Sixes which were the last speakers Henry Kloss designed. Kloss was a pioneer in audio having founded Advent, AR, KLH, and Cambridge Soundworks.

The Model Six has that great old New England sound and will embarrass lots of costlier speakers. I don't think the Allegro's would compete with your Model Sixes. Welcome aboard.

A Yamaha YST, one of the hidden secrets of audio. I have had two at various times.
