Last night I decided to go through my father's old stereo equipment that is stored in a closet and covered with dust. I know he is a big fan of AR and that became obvious as I opened the boxes. I found 3 pairs of AR speakers. Two of them were pretty old and he told me that they date back to the late 70's. These two pairs are identical (pretty much a standard speaker shape) except for size and woofer size. One pair has 8 inch woofers while the other has a 6 inch. The third pair of speakers is a "triagular" shaped speaker called AR Rock Partners. These are more recent, probably from the early 90's and I remember when he bought them, but I just wasn't into HT and music back than and didn't pay much attention. Does anyone own these same speakers or has any info on them? They look like new and I just feel bad leaving them stored in those boxes for ever. I thought about replacing my two mains (JBL SCS 150 SI) with them but I know about that whole timber matched thing so maybe I should just let it go. Anyway I just want to find some use for them. Thanks in advance for any info.
