    Default Snell J-II speakers?

    Anyone heard, own, these?

    If so, what do you think they're worth?

    Built in New England in the '80s. A two way 8", 1" fabric dome. Crossover 2300hz, 92 db efficiency. Good power handling. I had a brief listen to these off a Yamaha integrated 50 w x 2. Threw out a nice soundstage on a classical piece and sounded like they had very good dynamics/damping, etc. Am considering adding them to the flock. Will probably have a more extended listening session.

    Thoughts on their 'worth' are welcome? They come with custom made wood stands that match the speaker (stands made by Snell to match). They also provide time alignment--like the old Polk Monitor stands they tilt the speakers.


    Thanks!

    Only heard of them by reputation. They sound nice however.
