I've listened to an old pair of bookshelf's driven with an entry level Sony receiver. You can imagine how that sounded. Yup, this was a completely useless post. I'm just trying to catch ya, Juice!

Yes i did,
I heard them I a guys house, they were an older pair he bought in New york years ago.he loved them and still used them today.
I listened to them, they were ok but nothing to get all excited about.Just nice older sounding speakers.

I don't know about those new 'tiny towers of power', but give me a good Walsh series speaker any day of the freakin week. Some consider them a little heavy on the low-end, a little lite up-top....
But the demos I have had sing right on, esp on good vintage amps, eg, Marantz, Phase Linear, Gas....
Definately in my top 10 vintage, must-have, speakers.....

The older Walsh series sound great. I've heard a few of these and some of the older 3-way. I haven't had an opportunity to listen to anything from thses guys in about 12yrs.

I answered an add for a pair of Walsh 4XO's (maybe wrong number it was in 1987 or so) any way got them in the box new for 750.00 (hint: this was a steal) They sound great, had them on a Carver TFM-45 and they soaked up the power, the omni-directional sound was good, not what you are use to so it was different, had great lowend, I think they had a super tweeter to help on the topend?? anyway sold them and made some cash, I think this was the beginning of my buy/sell adiction.
BTW I will say I thought they were way over priced for what you got.

I have a pair of OHM FRS5's in my bedroom. they are great sounding speakers. Very natural sounding and image extremely well!
I will never get rid of them..and ohm still has replacement parts for them..so if anything happens..they can be fixed...
I even have a trade in value with ohm if I ever decide to upgrade them...
