Default My First Build

Finished my MK3s this weekend. 3/4" MDF with Cherry veneer finished with Watco Danish oil containing ~5% Minwax Cherry stain.

Two comments from the wife say it all:

1) "Are you really going to put more furniture in here? "

Note she referred to them as "furniture" and not boxes, speakers,
or things.

And after listening Hurt by Johnny Cash she commented:

2) "I can actually hear the pain is his voice." I can hear things
that I've never heard before. Whatever they cost they were worth it!"

We spent much of yesterday evening "rediscovering" our music collection and woke up this morning to continue.

Needless to say, these things are a hit around here.

Thanks to all who came before and paved the way

Barry

I will say that I've not found soundstage confined between the speakers as mentioned in the review, although most of my listening has been with FE126 with spots (now how in the world could that make any difference? )

Yet another FH MK III is born. This is from the 1st wave of flat pak.
The pregnancy was a little long, and the deliver doctor was a total newbie.
What it counts is the healthy babies and happy endings
