I own Alon II speakers that I bought new in 1994. The speakers are powered by a VTL IT-85 integrated amplifier. I bought the Alons because I loved the sound staging. I live in a studio apartment currently, and have never lived in anything bigger than a one bedroom, so I realize I am not making optimal use of the speakers. Nonetheless, I still listen to music and feel giddy because I get bass without a subwoofer and the sound is pure. My questions are thus:
- Do I need to replace these speakers because of age?
- If so, what on the market is worth checking out in my price range (no more than $3,000)?
- If not, how long should I realistically expect these speakers to last? Is there anything I can do to extended the life of the speakers (I have never had them "serviced")?
Thank you in advance for your thoughts.
