    My Thiel 1.2's just celebrated their 30th anniversary. They look and sound every bit as good as the day I brought them home.

    My 1.5's will hit 20 this year. Mine have some scratches, but they sound terrific. I just wish Jim were around designing new models.

    If I had a bigger listening room, I'd buy a pair of used 3.6's.

    My speakers are 42 years old. I've had both woofers reconed, and replaced both tweeters and one of the midranges... but the cabinets are original.
