Some of the parts dry out (especially the foam surrounds holding the speaker in older designs) but otherwise they hold up well.

That I know, I lost my AR18s to dry rot in the woofers. These were the ones the BA CR8s replaced. (still have them boxed somewhere in the basement though, can't seem to throw old equipment out!)

So in comparing the specs of the ATs to by BAs, I assume they are roughly equivalent then? Replacing the BAs with the ATs to match the center wouldn't really make any sense? I ask merely because they dropped $20 bucks for the pair this week. I really would prefer if the surrounds dropped in price, replacing the CR6s with those might make more sense.
