Too fun! I hate to say it though, but I like the "fake" woodgrain vinyl wrap than the original book speakers. They looked a little "home-made" by today's standards, but hey. Who cares how some of them looked, as long as they performed, and I am sure that they did.
Every time I see some of the other older product, I am glad that the trapezoidal shape has changed and isn't quite so "triangular"...
