  1. Nice video. I wish I liked the speakers more.

  3. That is an awesome video of all the work that can go into a highend speaker. Now then, how much of that labor translates into great sound? I have not heard that model but years ago I heard another model from that manufacturer and didn’t like the high frequencies–they were quite harsh. The lesson for me is it doesn’t matter how much effort goes into something if the guy who has the final word on tone has defective ears and thinks that harsh sounds good or is what he thinks his buyers want. In the end it is wasted effort.

    I also enjoyed the video from the perspective of having just completed my first high performance audiophile sound quality speaker build. I can really appreciate the work that goes into making good speakers. I’ll officially share my web page describing the process later when some more time with them has gone by but it is very far along if anyone reading this wants to check it out. Just google “myspeakerbuild” for the web page.
