Hopefully I'll get two more tower cabinets like my two curtis Mathes that I currently have. *Hopefully*...
The point here sounds like you have 30 year old speakers. 200 dollar a pair speakers don't last 30 years in general. The investment comes by buying good speakers today and giving them to your kids in 30 years. Curtis Matehs used to be high quality stuff back in the 70s. not a grand a pair but not 50 bucks each either.
Like I said before I have had my pair of Bose 10.2 since the 80's and they still sound great and look pretty good as well. I intend to give them to my kids when the time comes too.
