I bought a pair of JBL L100 monitors from Warehouse Sound mail order (stab from the past).

I lived with them until I got the "high end" bug.

Oh, baby.

Hmm, I recognize the Quads of course, and some McIntosh amps and what looks like a Fisher 500C, and perhaps Dahlquist DQ10s behind? Don't know about the rest.
