Speakers - Acoustic Research AR-90
Found these pair of AR-90 speakers at a yard sale in Santa Barbara. We were on vacation so there wasn't any room in the van to bring them home. The guy wanted $300 for them, so it was still a good deal, but I would have made a return trip from Orange County with an empty van if he's asked half that amount. Plus, after the Hales Revelation purchase, I just don't have room for gargantuan speakers right now.
He had them hooked up to an Onkyo A/V receiver and they sounded fine. Tough to give a critical listen to speakers that are sitting on a driveway. I've seen these on CraigsList for as high as $750/pair. The AR-9 is the big brother to this one. Same mid and high drivers (from what I've read on a forum), but 2 x 12" woofers in each cabinet instead of 2 x 10".
Have any experience with the AR-90? Shoot me an email or leave a comment. Thanks!
