When shopping for vintage speakers, compare it to shopping for a vintage car. Try and find a one-owner set of speakers that have lived an easy life. Inspect speakers for:
• Peeling veneer
• Replacement drivers
• Torn grilles
• Hints of overuse
• Signs of possible abuse
There are many online groups dedicated to the collection and preservation of vintage speakers. It's a good idea to ask questions there as well as to check old speaker review articles for the nicer brands of vintage speakers.
