You know something? We replace lots of stuff but not speakers. I have some that are almost 50 years old (that maker is long out of business) and they’re still good.

Original cones?

I had to replace the tweeters on the 155s a couple years ago. Much cheaper than replacing the speakers themselves (not that this would be possible now, as you know). I find it interesting that all these years later most audiophiles still think of the Infinity SM series as better than most of the new stuff (including their new SM series). You'd think with advances in technology that this wouldn't be the case. So, yeah, I hang on to them.

I'll try a bit of pointing, and rerunning the YPAO.
