    Now that there is just plain sweet. I don't care who you are.
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    Your work is stunning. That is beautiful.

    Anyone else notice the life force above the speakers?

    I'd use a vacuum or some silver tape to pull the dust caps out. Sometimes the vacuum doesn't work because the cap is too porous and it doesn't grab. Then I just grab the silver tape and scrub a piece in to where its dented and SLOWLY pull out... pulls dents out like magic!

    These were the first horn speakers I heard that I had any kind of respect for. When I first heard them they had crossover components that got the job done. A few years later I got to hear them after Luther installed some Jupiter capacitors and maybe a few other components I can't remember. Stunning. Absolutely stunning after the upgrades were installed.

    Thanks for the bump Skip. Talk about return from the dead. The system has changed some over the years, but the speakers remain.

    Luther, your work blows everything away!!! Do you offer tours?

    Skip, thanks for the bump.

    Luther, thanks for the new look and what a "man can do" if he sticks to it. By the way, I like the story regarding your grandson and the marshmallow. He will appreciate it very much when he is older.

    There are quite a few names in this thread that I have not seen previously. Most of them have quite a few posts. Good history.

    I'm always open for audio. It grows on you--> hobby --> passion --> obsession --> lunacy.

    Beautiful speakers. Excellent craftsmanship. They do not look like DIY speakers. I am sure they sound spectacular. I would love to hear them sometime.
