    EPI A70 Opinions And Suggestions

    https://imgur.com/gallery/LYj5kWhat do you guys think about the EPI A70s. I bought a refurbished pair and while they sound alright I'm not blown away. I have to admit I don't have much knowledge when it comes to vintage speakers so please excuse my ignorance on the subject. Not sure where they fit in EPIs lineup. If they were a more budget type speaker or a premium speaker. I'm going to get some Allison Model 5s today and wondering what to do with these A70s. Don't think they're worth much. I guess I can store them away for the time. A few pics in the link: https://imgur.com/gallery/LYj5k Thanks much! Joe

    Hi everyone, Been doing some reading on Allison speakers because I'm picking up my first pair today! They're refoamed Model 5's. One of the grills is broken which I've heard is common. And I'm told there's a slight dimple in one of the tweeters. The cabinets are absolutely perfect. They look amazing. My question is.. does $225 for the pair sound reasonable? It seems it to me, but wanted to get the experts take. The only vintage speakers I own currently are some EPI A70s so this is new territory for me. I just purchased a 1968ish AR Ax turntable and am hoping the Allison's will be a good match. I'm running a single ended class A tube amp, but I don't think it has enough power to drive them. It only outputs 8w per channel stereo at 4Ω. So I may be in the market for a new amplifier. Too bad Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself and ask my question. Thanks for all the contributers here! Some great info. Hopefully one day I will be one. Thanks in advance! Joe
