To judge from the page views, there are other people who are not you who do enjoy reading these vintage reviews. You can always not read them if they bother you.

I bought this wonderful speakers by reading the review in Stereophile, when I studied in the US almost three decades ago. I also bought the
Vandy 2CE and quite a few of hi-fi equipments which were recommended by Stereophile before I came back to my home country.

Recently, I just came back to Hi-Fi. I can assure that my Dana speakers, not in 100% shape, still hold its own against my recently acquired Wharfedale Diamond 10.1. Both are very good speakers, but still not as good as Elac B5 and B6 (I bought both even before Stereophile reviewed the B6. I think B5 is almost as good as B6. They are almost identical, however, B6 seems easier to drive, maybe because of higher sensitivity.)

All in all, I still enjoy listening music with my Dana Audio model 1.

Dana Audio Model 1 loudspeaker

The philosophy promoted by many mainstream stereo magazines (and thus often the belief of the general public) is that one should spend a minimum amount of one's hi-fi budget on electronics and front ends, and a maximum amount on loudspeakers. Since all electronics sound alike and it's the loudspeaker that really produces the sound, the highest overall performance is obtained by putting expensive loudspeakers at the end of a chain of inexpensive electronics. Cables? Don't waste your money.
