Just purchased a late 1970's /early 80's Luxman receiver (Replacing one that I had in college)

What Speakers?

My college system had Infinitys and they sounded great.

Any suggestions?

If I recall correctly, sonnymobleytrane loves Peruvian folk music, Death Metal, and pretty much anything with pan pipes...

I'm totally cool with you wearing your wife's panties. But dancing to polkas: that sickens me.

The design for Kliipsch corner horns are from that vintage:

Magnepans were also quite popular, IIRC

I have a soft spot in my heart for Bower and Wilkens, too.

Hak There are actually a pair of Klipsh speakers that were my mom and dad's when I was in college at my Mom's house. They were the kind that were small floor standing speakers , but had a base that angled up. (Don't know the model number.)

Problem is they are hooked to a system that I'm pretty sure my Mom has not listened to in 20 years, but might not want to part with.

I have a Luxman receiver from the early 80's collecting dust in the garage for years. I used to use a pair of beat up Mordaunt-Short speakers and I swear the sound was wonderfull. I sold the speakers for next to nothing and I regret that to this day. My main integrated amp is also an early 80's A&R Cambridge British handmade. I pair a couple of shelf size B&W speakers with it and it sounds very good.

Thinking of 70ies equipment: still use a pair of Rogers LS3/5a monitors that were a hand me down from my father (who is the audiophile in the family). Tiny things but they sound great.

I have some Paradigm speakers that sound nice, are well balanced, and not nearly as pricey as B+W. I think they're 9SE MK II...about 15 yrs old. My old speakers are Phase Technology. Over 25 years old still sound nice in my office.

The B+W are great sounding speakers, but I think they're pretty expensive. Boston Acoustics makes some good sounding speakers in a moderate price range. I listened to those quite a bit it was very close between those and the Paradigms.

My speakers are Athena which are basically today's Energy speakers with a Harmon Kardon receiver. My music is ripped to flacs on my hard drive and streamed to my system via a squeezebox touch.

Quality recordings are important to me. Any album by Porcupine Tree...especially their multichannel material is amazing. Dvorak's 9th Chicago/Solti recording has crazy nuance. Miles' Someday my Prince will come and Diana Krall's the girl in the other room is of exceptional sound quality.
