I inherited two older stereo systems due to the passing of my father-in-law. Both have powered tower speakers and I am curious if I should use either of them with my home stereo. I currently have a Yamaha A1040 with small satellite speakers and dual SVS PB 12 subs for HT.\n\nI inherited the following:\nMeridian 501 Control unit, Meridian 504 FM Tuner, Meridian 508 CD Player and Meridian M60 loudspeakers.\n\nB&O Beosound 9000 with Beolab 8000 speakers. \n\nWould reusing either pair of these speakers be recommended? The M60s have XLR cables and the Beolabs look proprietary connections. \n\ni have been looking for new speakers but don’t want to overlook these I already have without a few opinions of people smarter than me on the topic. Get a decent passive speaker or use these?
