They are very rare, not many are seen for sale, but Infinity is popular in Germany and there was a pair for sale on Ebay a few days ago. Surrounds were rotted out and one of the tweeters was dead.
See this thread for more details The PA seems well suited for the inefficient Infinity’s speakers. Not only does he restore and repair these items for himself but he performs modifications and refinements that have to be heard to be believed. I have kappa 6. Enjoy your new kappas! They can’t compare to some of the brands like Paradigm or Axiom. Deep and room-shaking effects had heretofore gone completely unnoticed.
Without sounding to serid I could afford to buy many of the speakers out there. Nice for my bar in the basement. Lee trusts his own ears and is immune to the component of the month disease. For example, for the car, I love Infinity That’s not only talking the talk, that’s walking the walk.

His Infinity IRS system will be what catches the eye of most readers but they’re way too big for my room. I bought them at the same time and they were always together, go figure. I told Bill kalpa only things missing were the hard and uncomfortable wooden bench – and a properly oi attitude.

What little remained was so reduced in level and so removed from the context of the music that the brain had a tendency to listen right past it in favor of the music presented with a musical flow and a presence unavailable on CD.
