    I have a in near mint condition and would like a pair of another model. I love my CD-7s. I have never had anything that images as well in a medium sized room.

    If I had the money, I'd be all over those PB 8.2's. They'd be a perfect match with mine. I'd use them as my rear speakers, and then all I'd need would be an Allison center.
    I've tried to tell people about Allison speakers. Because they've never heard of them, they just ignore them. Their loss! It's really a shame........ Several people at AudioKarma.org, have Allisons, and have raved about them. Some found their's at Goodwill Outlet stores, or Salvation Army Outlets. Keep an eye on Craig's List too.
    Good luck!

    The tweeter are fine but the woofer foam is falling apart. The cabinet is in good condition and still have the grill. Let me know if you are interested.

    Yes, it's the top grill(e) from one of the speakers. It's beat up pretty bad, has a couple of long cracks and is missing a chunk off the edge, about an inch wide. It's been detached from the speaker and I haven't bothered to glue it back on. These plastic grills are pretty brittle, so if you have any kind of damage, it's probably a goner. I think I've seen a link somewhere where you can purchase a replacement. The exposed tweeter and midrange paper cones are a bit knocked in, but I don't detect any difference in sound from the other speaker. As far as function is concerned, no issues that I can tell.

    You don't know how much I would love to have the AL-115s. I have a pair I've had for about 15 yrs. (oak finish), and I love them. The foam is falling apart on them now. Heck, I can't even afford the $20+ refoam kit right now, so I definitely can't buy a pair of speakers. Good luck selling them. Whoever buys them will be getting one heck of a speaker. [​IMG]

    How about a trade? I have the pair of AL-115s in my possession for either some cash or a good trade. Also have the AL-120 speakers (pair). Would be willing to trade if there's something i need or want. Also, I have a couple of actual "bookshelf" speakers. It's model number is REF-303BK made by Stanford Advanced Acoustic Technology (SAAT). I think SAAT was part of Allison or may have been owned or did own Allison before, not sure though. But anyways it's a pair of speakers that looks like actual books. Amazon used to sell them for $150 + shipping. Pretty good speakers if you ask me...

    Have the same answer here..[​IMG]
    Allison Ones show up on eBay every once in awhile.
    Y'all can go to audiokarma.org and ask there too. Several people there have Allison Ones, and other models.

    This thread has a lot of action for speakers that supposedly no one has heard of [​IMG] . I'm vaguely familiar with them but maybe I should investigate a little more. I'm mostly happy with what I have but there's no harm in learning something new!
