Different class of speaker, those older models were quite cheap, inefficient, very low powered and a bit old fashioned when compared to the zingy new Japanese stuff.

I melted a pair of those purple coned tweeters in a pair of Lintons during a pretty lively party in my teens :D

Clean and a forced side to side 'waggle' as you switch up and down usually clears it.

Yep, pondering that Technics of yours, but also thinking of trawling eBay for good quality broken hifi components to fix and sell on.

Bought a CD-48 the other day which I plan on upgrading along the lines of my CD-67 which I'll put up for sale once I'm happy it's a giant killer!

The E50's should do well, as I said, valve amp freaks love 'em!
