Sincerely,

We will need the specs to evaluate compatibility. In any case why are you looking for speakers that are over 30 years old? Drivers material and crossover technology have improved rapidly, and it may be prudent to look for more recent speakers.

Cheers

Dear sir,
I thank you for your reply to my request.I thought that since the Cosmic TT is a classic item perhaps the sound output would be better if connected to speakers of the same period and moreover I am an ardent fan of classic items.I thank you once again for your reply.
Sincerely

Newer speakers pair very well with old components. So no worries on that front. Make sure you get a highly efficient speaker that can be driven by the Cosmic as the power module would probably not be working at its optimum best after all these years. If possible, you may even want to look at changing this and may be pleasantly surprised with increased soundstage and dynamics. The repair person should be knowledgable in this case.
