How many watts?

(Photo not mine.) I also scored a pair of 1970s-vintage original Baby Advents to pair with my large Advents. I love Advent loudspeakers. I picked up the Babys for $50 yesterday in Goodwill--they work, sound lovely, and they have the original grill and Advent metal stickers--as well as the original paper that Advent used to staple to the back side.

I did a sound comparison between the large and the Babys. The large ones are definitely a bit louder, but the sound from both is incredibly alike.

Back in the day (mid-70s) when I shopped speakers a lot, I was told the 3s could handle up to around 100 wpc. I'm not sure I believe that, but then again, I'm not much of an audio techie.

My guess is they're not all that efficient.

I run these and my Large Advents from a Yamaha CR620 Receiver and I don't hear any distortion, bottoming out, etc. Then again, I don't play my music at foundation shattering volumes either.

Your pictures are really great. I would have assumed stock but even that would not blend as well with borders. Whatever you are doing keep it up and if I ever decide to open an EBAY store, I am heading your way for advice. Only Brianpore on TOF is better when he does his 360 degree photos.
Not my photos! Hotlinked from the vendor'ssite (apart from the first which I had to rehost on photobucket).

Alas, I violated my self imposed shopping hiatus, to purchase two BB woven cotton, D-Ring belts; one in a navy and red pattern and the second in a navy and green pattern. Originally priced at $50, I picked them up for a pittance at $9.73 apiece...and they should be suitable for a more tropical wardrobe! ;)

Interested to hear more about this if you have the opportunity. Similar to a Barbour? Pics?

2, an LL Bean Heritage Sweater, Irish Fisherman's Crewneck

Color? Loden or Natural. This is a nice looking sweater. I have seen similar before but to be honest, was kind of hesitant at this price point to go Bean. Your thoughts?

Thanks

1. Similar to Barbour, slightly bigger fit overall, in my estimation. I'll work on some pics. Rain expected next week, so maybe some in the wild shots.

2. Loden, although I wouldn't mind the natural. And yes, worth every penny, imho. Hefty and well-made, and so warm you feel like you're wearing a furnace.
