      Re: Vintage Hi-Fi gear. Who's into it?

      Wow!! Nice find. The SMG (a)(b) is my favorite speaker.
      I knew right away what you found when you said " room divider"

      There are a few aftermarket stands out there.

      I had the same thought. The inside of the doors as well as the inside of the rear quarter panels have no sound deadening materials. Has anyone tried applying sound abatement in those areas? Is it...
