I found a reference that they were made in 1972. The whole system was given
to me by a cousin who had bought it new, and had just upgraded to a then-new
Sony system. Personally I think I got the better part of the deal, and he's
amazed I'm still using what he was ready to throw away. I love the wood
grained speakers, and luckily my wife does too.
Surround is nice, but not nice enough that I would want to replace the
Advents. Adding the dbx subwoofer has helped them out. I used to joke they
were the largest satelite speakers around. For any Star Wars/Trek type
movies the engine noises literally shake the floor with that thing.
So I just may be the only one using 70's era equipment on my main Myth
