Walk down memory lane

I was looking through 1988 issue of New York Magazine and this ad caught my attention:


Acoustat Model 3 on sale for $499? Wow, wish I could travel back in time!
I 've paid that for my Acoustat 66 today out here in California, I paid $ 350.00 for a pair of 2+2's and $100.00 for a Acoustat tnt-200 power amp.
It just depends on where you are located, most people today just don't want BIG wall size speakers in there home or apartment anymore. like it was in the 70's.
