    American Monitor were known as "white van speakers".

    I bought some speakers at a garage sale once, they ,might have been american monitor, they looked great, but they were awful. They were definitely white van speakers.

    My JBL L166's cost less than those in 1976. I think I paid about $480 for the pair of JBL's.

    Thanks guys . Going to dig into them more tomorrow . Also got probably the last receiver ever made with a phono out. About 20 speaker hookups on the back , as well as a cassette deck and CD player. Denon, Technics, and I forget.

    I love vintage hi fi gear. Nostalgic and totally cool. Most of that stuff was really built to last and holds up.
