All of these systems provided pure, unalloyed pleasure. Although, of course some, more than others.

Throughout my college years, I owned a disc jockey service and used stacked advents, Klipsch Lascallas,Altec A-7 voice of the theater's and JBL 300's.Even tried stacking 2 pair of Dayton Wright X-10 Electrostatics....They were truly astounding in the right hall [read large] with the finest bass I have ever heard to date.Unfortunately... My amps at the time[brystons and phase linear]blew up regularly!
I would love to hear them again today in my studio system with some modern day amplification.

First a pair of 3-way "Magna" speakers - at least I think that was the line - purchased in some store after a flood damage. Circa 1982 or so...

Second was a used pair of Bang&Olufsen 3-ways for around $50, with a replaced tweeter. Guess they were early-mid 70's vintage. I gave them to a relative at next speaker purchase.

Bought a pair of DCM TimeFrame TF2500's or -something or others shortly after college, at JC Penney or GFox or something. Circa 1987. Actually, they were pretty good - at one time I think DCM were considered audiophile material - at least their upper-end Time Frame stuff.

The DCM TFS lasted for many years - paired with the original "Magnas" until I got some Mirage OM-7s about 2 years ago. (DCMs are now relegated to basement duty for work-out music). Was meant to get some Mirage OM-6 Demos when Tweeter were closing them out, but the salesperson sold the pair I had put on layway. Gave me the OM-7s for the same price (about $1400 I think). And yes - I do like the Mirages - even they are positioned less than ideally due to WAF. I guess the bi-polar/omnipolar sound is a very personal preference though. I fell for it when auditioning the OM-6's, and no regrets.

Bought Mirage center to augment the mains about 1 year ago. Sounds good for movies.

Bought some Wharfedale Diamond 8.2 70 Anniversaries a few weeks ago, for under $200. Haven't listened to them for 2-channel (serving as my HT rears, and I've only pulled them out for for movie viewing - again WAF). Still - after listening to the Diamond 8.1s and 8.3s at a friend's house, I think Wharfedale is great value for the moolah. The 8.2 Anniversaries are actually upgrades over the other Diamond 8's, with 40Hz-24Khz range (if I could actually hear all that), with a nice wood veneer finish, kevlar-polypro tweeter, and gold-plated bi-wirable terminals. For under $200, a steal.
