Well post the model of your first pair of speakers with an image.
Mine were a pair of 1999 JBL D38 (decade series). I was 10 and my father surprised me with them for a birthday gift with a Technics SA-EX110 receiver and a Technics SH-8017 Stereo Graphic Equalizer. Not bad for a nine-ten year old.
My audio source was a PS1 for a CD player followed by a PS2 then a Xbox then my PC.
