Hi Tanoj, your talking early 1980s audio here. Akai did dish out some more than decent audio during this point of time, cassette decks, amps, tuners and speakers. My father's friend had a AKAI GXC-39 D cassette deck and I still remember how impressed I was as a 9 year old, listening to it play back its own recording of a Burning Train LP (RD Burman). If its in good shape, not a bad idea to dive, remember, these are general assembly line audio equipment and definitely not audiophile grade. You may need to re-cap and so on, hence the tag of 5k may be a bit heavy. I'd give 2k or 2.5k for it.

The price mentioned in the link is not for a pair but for a single speaker.
