which is a better speaker
I am looking to buy a pair of speakers to use with my 2265B Marantz which would be better Pioneer HPM 100 or Jbl 120ti
Brand generalities between Pioneer and JBL do not apply here. The HPM100 was developed by top ex-JBL engineers that designed the JBL L-100 Century:
OP just go on Ebay and buy some vintage Bose 301s and come back here to tell all of us crabby pants old farts we spent too much money on our speakers because you have the real deal.
According to the info I have Altec had 512 studio monitor installations versus 256 for JBL in 1973.
