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 think the SM series back then were a departure from the’baggy’ bass of others; the SM’s were clearer and more definitive. Although old I would stack them up against many newer models even though these newer speakers are made of better materials.

What some modern speaker makers do that I don’t like is cut costs by using cheaper crossovers and cheaper cabinets. Rap a knuckle against the SMs and compare that with the sound coming from some speakers made more recently. Cheap is a boxy sound teling the internal bracing isn’t what it could be.

I feel the same of my Paradigm Studio/60’s (http://www.paradigm.com/products/products-by-category/floors... Clean, tight and solid construction. They will part over my dead cold hands.
