Going to make front covers for them too. Dont have these in stock so will have to wait a bit. Driver rings will need to be made too, but i have stuff that should do nicely...Still they are nice enough for moment and would cost a fortune from a manufacturer.. The 4 drivers from late 50,s or early 60,s are rare, mint and sound fab... I have a single spare too, plus a set of single drivers made up in boxes too that are my main listen. These just may beat them lol
    Some more testing today, and they are rather good . Maybe better than rather good actually

    Think i will retire when in front

    They look awesome Grant.. Bet they belt out some sound too!

    One of my main testing tracks is Ole Blue Eyes himself and 'It was a very good year'...

    If you listen at the beginning, you can hear someone sitting down in their chair ready to start playing

    Re the walking stick in the hallway; is that for those that knock at your door asking you to turn it all down?!
