    RE: SMC AS40s

    The mids foam looks like it's had its day which is expected from these early speakers and the tweeter is widely available. Not that much work imo.

    That's an awful lot of work. The NS-1000 boxes are thick dense ply and heavily braced. Or at least the sectioned boxes I saw Yamaha displaying were. Just getting the rebates right would be pretty demanding.

    Stripping the poorly applied veneer off the cabinets of these ebay ones shouldn't be too hard. Then it's just a clean-up, make good and repaint. I could do it and so could other members.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    That's not a simple cabinet: They're more than 30Kg a piece so the advice is very sound.
    Main system: Sony TTS8000; SME IV; Audio Technica Art1; Nakamichi CA7 pre-amp; Nakamichi PA7 Power amp; Lentek integrated; SBT; Technics sh-x1000 DAC; Yamaha NS1000M.
    System 2 - SBT; Denon PMA850 integrated; JBL 4312B control monitors.
    System 3 - Taken over by my son! Chromecast; Beresford Caiman II; Klark Teknik Jade 1 active studio monitors.

    I accept your superior knowledge on the NS1000 boxes - I have no knowledge of their construction.

    If you have a final settling on those speakers, the motivation to replicate and even improve may be worth it although a lot of work. I would perhaps consider if doing it making narrower fronted ones though.
    My most recent own boxes have 53 wood braces in each and are 'rock dead.

    I doubt a much narrower cabinet can be achieved, taking into acount the significant sidewall thickness.

    Pioneer PL-12D turntable at a 229 asking price. Ridiculous! It's not even complete, forty quid would be more like it.
