I have a pair of these bookshelves that I bought back in 1993, from Circuit City I think....I can't even remember how much I spent -- maybe $200.
Anyway, 16 years later, I still have them on a second 2-channel and I think they sound pretty decent for being a 16 yrs. old and of early 1990s vintage. I saw that some people sell these on Craigslist for something like $40...I can't see getting rid of them for two twenty dollar bills (what can that get you, today?) so I plan to keep them until they can't play any longer. So, I guess what I'm trying to say is that to have spent $200 so long ago and still get some pleasure out of them so many years later is kind of nice.
Anyway, I'm just wondering if anybody else has heard of this company or even these particular speakers. If you have heard of Advent, would you happen to know if they folded...I realize that this is low-fi stuff (most likely below the radar of most folks here) but I'm still curious.
