More coffee snobbery brought about by people with too much time and too much money on their hands. I won't step foot in a Star "gonna take your" bucks and see no reason to follow the lemmings to a store of this type either. Duncan Donuts here I come. Low prices, great coffee. A regular working class coffee shop.

Yet another install done wrong.

Don't blame the sound on the loudspeakers.

Breaking the prohibition against the discussion of religion here I go.  Dunkin Donuts coffee sucks.  Their chocolate frosted cake donuts are the only thing worth going thru the door for ( not a good idea, just good tasting ).

Form over function all the way, its just fun to see a pair of A7s hanging on a coffee shop wall.  Next question is do they have a pair of green Altec 50 watt tube amps behind 'em?

I saw this on PA of the Day recently. I would love to have a nicely restored set of A7's. I have a small pile of Altec amps in my garage actually. Some 1593B 50 watters, and 3 of the big 1590B 200 watt jobs.

I agree that Dunkin Donuts makes great coffee.  I used to frequent DD when I lived on the East Coast, but now just buy their coffee at the commissary.  They finally opened a store near me, but I avoid eating fat pills nowadays.  Another great coffee brand is Lavazza.  Yum!

Those old Altecs bring some serious money these days.

Some people give them away (because of the age) and others pay really good money to have them.

I think of all the old Altec gear that was trashed years ago because it was not up "modern standards" and how much somebody could have made if they put them in storage.

Oh well--------------

I'm a fan of the old Altecs that actually sound good.  My home stereo is a pair of 604Es in baltic birch cabinets and the basement extension speakers are a pair of 601s ( the 12 inch version of the 604 ).  A7s are classics in their way but theres a reason that JBL 4560s and 2350s supplanted them quickly back in the day.
