YAMAHA: Do NS-1000 stack up today?

“As good pairs seem to go for £1000, my question is how would they stack up against other speakers in the same price bracket old or new?

I could so easily have popped into Sevenoaks or the Classifieds and put together a middle of the range system but just […]

Horns …..

https://www.flickr.com/photos/79846937@N06/14213752391/ The horns below (the black pair on either side, not the brown ones) were the first hifi speaker ever built, 88 years ago, in 1926, one year before talkies were made.
