Dave, I would love to send you and Scott an e-mail on a beta build also (you know I have a pair of Fostex FE166en which I need to put to good use outside a BiB ), but a Victor will find it difficult to pass under the radar of SWMBO for now

Beta phase on Victor is now over (design verified). Beta testing of the docs will now proceed. There is a standard 33% discount on the plans for this phase.

Well, looks like the floors went to a better place...!

The Maeshowe'sq curved back adds an interesting angle to the overall aesthetic... nice!

The photo doesn't do justice to what Bernie's material looks like with a nice finish. For enclosures of this dimension, I'd definitely want to keep it lighter.

hmm, caramelized bamboo - only 3(?) sheets?

$$less, so funny!

I did a rough layout on graph paper based on Scott L website's basic dimensions and illustrations.
Apparently i can build a stereo pair of Victor's with just three 5'x5' sheets of Baltic Birch. Should keep the weight @ ~90lbs per speaker. I pretty sure the overall size/shape should "just" slip under the radar

mp9, may the force be with you if you are running into WAF challenges and hope you can take Victor to a safe landing at your place soon! Given Scott's track record with the Sachiko and Saburo designs, my guess is that Victor will "wow".

Dave, please share some initial listening impressions.
