    Yeah, I have heard OF them , but know nothing about. If you want to know a bit more of the company's history, I would try "Vintage" at AudioAsylum. A lot of info there...

    Just seeing that name, I would also have scoffed them up. And they sound good?!?!? No way! :*) I have had terrible luck at my local Salvation Army as of late. For example - I saw a pair of "EMIT" equipped Infinities a while back... I inquired about them, "Oh... these have to be checked out before a sale". Needless to say, they never made it to the shelf. And that smell of despair in those stores...lol. I'm staying away for a while...hehe.

    Aw, well... nice find! I'm glad someone has some luck!

    You got one hell of a deal! Rogers LS3/5A? They, along with Spendor, and Harbeth have made some of the best mini monitors in the world. Very $$.
