Summary: Greetings; I'm old, 61. Bought my 1st JBL L100's in 1971, adding to them some DynaCo amps & pre-Amps I'd assembled, & Rek-0 Kut turntable. Thank heaven I've never parted w/ the equipment. At that time there were many competitors in the stereo & speaker, amp & pre amps. Stereo goods were selling like hotcakes. A stereo / electronics on every corner. I very recently moved to a lovely joint, it is however approximately 800~850 sf.
