The receiver is the Yamaha AV-1010.  It has been working flawlessly for 8 years.

My speakers include Allison One's for the main L/R speakers that I had from an earlier stereo installation.  I bought these speakers when I was just out of college in 1977.  The original receipt and specifications are shown below.

Just recently in January of 2002 the company which had been out of business for 11 years restarted with new Allison 1's being offered using the same type of drivers and design.  The company is headed by Roy Allison in the engineering department.  You can still get replacement drivers for the original speakers.  The only main thing that has changed is the price.  I paid $720 in 1977 for a pair.  Now they are $6000 a pair.  Mine still sound wonderful to me.  They have a quality of smooth presentation of voices that is unsurpassed.  In a surround sound environment they contribute to the spaciousness of the presentation.

My Allison's with the grill removed:

My center channel, sides, rears and sub are all by Sound Dynamics.  The center is the RTS-C2,  The surrounds are the RTS-RS1's and the sub is the RTS-1200.  Sound Dynamics is the poor stepchild of Mirage and Energy speakers.  They are the one of the leading Canadian manufacturers of speakers.  They sound great and are relatively inexpensive.
