I had a pair of Altec Lansing "Carmel" speakers that sounded great used with a McIntosh MX110 and MC240. In any event use tubes to "tame" the horns. Most SS components used with horns can sound harsh. Have fun!

You probably won't get alot of response on Altecs on Agon. But I absolutely love mine, powered by McIntosh MC40 tube monoblocks. Altecs are highly prized by Japanese and other far eastern audiophiles. ALso the SET crowd seems to like the Altec Hi Eff. speakers. You might want to checkout audioasylum.com in the HiEff speaker room, there are lots of folks there that cherish these dinosaurs.
Audiogon doesn't seem geared toward many vintage items. But I think there are some major audio bargins to be had in vintage. And that happens to be where my budget keeps me. I used to feel that HiFi was out of my monetary reach, but found I was just looking in the wrong direction.
Good luck and enjoy those speakers, they are worthy.
