I'm fond of my Echo and Echo Dot, but the most amazing speakers I've ever owned were old school floor speakers made by Zenith. They were hand-me-downs from a cousin when he went off to school. I could make the base as loud as I wanted and the speakers never vibrated. They were knocked down a hundred times and it didn't matter because those speakers were durable as heck.
I had a set of speakers just like the ones you mentioned, and I just loved them. They also could take a lickin' and keep on tickin'. I must have knocked them over a hundred times but they still worked until I gave them away a few years ago.
I'm actually thinking about spoiling myself this Christmas and getting a whole new system for my place. I've been doing a lot for everyone else this whole year and I think I deserve a little something special for myself .
Has anything in particular caught your eye? Are you looking for a whole new sound system or something else? I love hearing about what someone else likes because the blogs only seem to focus on Amazon and Bose.
