Default Fonken strikes again...

Ran over a pair of Fostex FE127en and just had to build another pair of Fonkens with the 127's...
Stunning, all in all...just with a EL84SE...from Single Ended Amplifire D.I.Y

Boiled linseed oil has a wet antique like glow to it that no modern finishes can seem to duplicate. Nicely done.

But, I guess if you do not have any children poking around in your speakers...forget a covering...
