Default Anyone heard the JohnBlue JB8 speakers?

I'm just interested to know if anyone has heard these speakers?

They look extremely nice! And coming out of Taiwan, i'm sure the price would be reasonable.

I can't tell what type of enclosure it is though. Can anyone offer any guesses?

Looks like Lyeco drivers... and i'd guess an ML-TL.

I've heard the little JB3 speakers and they kick serious butt!

Have not heard these, tho.

Not sure what brand drivers they use, but the last time I talked with them, they have someone designing locally. The JB8 has pretty good workmanship, I listened to them a few years ago, lots of people like them. Not super transparent, but quite pleasant for easy listening. I like the style. They have a local store just 20min driver from where I am.

It sure does looks like a Lyeco LY802F. However the website says:

Quote:
Source: http://www.johnblue-audio.com/product/jb8.htm
8 inch full range driver with special resin cast waveguide, antifungus treated paper cone, Pioneered and developed by JohnBlue.
So who really knows? If it is the LY802F, there is a chance it is Aperiodic.
